Planned Trip : Devil's Highway Jeep Expedition March 7-9, 2010




Our 4th Anniversary Trip ! Our 4th year in a row to commemorate the trip that was the beginnings of the Jeep Expeditions Group, El Camino Del Diablo same name, new trails !


THIS IS A JEEP ONLY EVENT LIMITED TO MEMBERS OF THE JEEP EXPEDITIONS GROUP !

A 2 day with 3 day option trip over the El Camino Del Diablo or the Highway of the Devil. Our 2010 Trip will be limited to the 1st 16 Jeeps that sign up and will be held February 20-21 (22nd optional), 2010. This trip will start on the east end of the Devils Highway at Ajo, AZ and end up on the west end near Yuma, AZ. The 3rd optional day will tour more of the many trails available in this area.

This trail has been in use for over 400 years and has been traveled by the Spanish Conquistadors in the 1600s to treasure seekers on their way to the California Gold Rush. The trail got its name because of the countless number of peoples lives it has claimed over the years due to its climate, remoteness and lack of safe drinking water. Illegal immigrants cross over this trail today, many still giving up their lives to the "Devil" in their quest to enter America. Since the advent of modern 4x4 vehicles, the trail has lost much of its danger.

While the trail has been used in the past by anything from 2WD to 4WD, the government has restricted travel now to registered 4WD vehicles by permit only to limit the impact on the environment. Not a technical trail, stock 4x4 vehicles can easily traverse the 140 miles from AJO to Yuma, AZ. Average speed on the trail as told by prior visitors is under 15mph. The road is a primitive dirt road that is not maintained. You can expect to encounter anything from a relatively smooth dusty road to washboard roads, rutted roads, soft sand roads, rocky roads and anything in between. A wide range of wildlife from Big Horn Sheep to Bobcats can be seen along this trail to many different varieties of plant life. One thing for sure, you will want to bring a camera as there are many beautiful sites to take pictures of on this trail in addition to many historic areas.

The area is closed 6 months a year (mid March to Sept) so that the Prong Horn Sheep can breed without the distractions of humans (illegal's and smugglers don't heed the closing).
