He is talking about heading up to the cabin on horseback from the Borrego Springs side. Horses can do the whole route, but vehicles can't.I'm confused.... the article says "Private vehicle travel is no longer allowed in the area, making the 12 mile journey from the Horse Camp more worth the effort"
So did you actually go to the cabin? Thanks.....
Okay, that makes sense. I am ignorant of the terrain there. :elkgrin:He is talking about heading up to the cabin on horseback from the Borrego Springs side. Horses can do the whole route, but vehicles can't.
That's why we had to drive in from the north to reach the cabin. Which is a legal trail. See pics of our trucks at the cabin.
In all the years that I have been going up there I have never seen it off. This is good to know if it is ever off when I stop.The spring is gravity fed.
I remembered on the way up when Miles was trying to turn it on, that the pipe could freely move back and forth and I thought that was odd.
What you do to get it going is to lay the pipe on it's side on the ground until the water flows. Then you can put the pipe back up vertical and it will stay flowing.
There is a shut off valve. So if it get's shut off, just repeat this process.
Pretty hard to miss the cabin. Its basically at the south end of the Upper Coyote Canyon trail (AKA: North Coyote Canyon Trail). The trail along the sandy wash takes you right to it as far I can remember. You can see the beginning of the sandy wash trail in Runner's photo here:Does anybody have GPS coordinates for Bailey's Cabin, and that Fireplace?
I can't seem to find reference to these locations in any of my books...
