Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Along the crest of the Jacumba Mountains lie several hidden bowls, surrounded by austere, rock-strewn peaks. To spend a night here on a bed of sand, immersed in an achingly profound silence, with nothing but a sky filled with stars overhead is to experience the desert in all its wonder and simplicity. Not far away from one of these bowls is a landmark revered by railroad buffs the world over. This is the 200-foot-high, 600-foot-long trestle over Goat Canyon on the San Diego & Arizona Eastern (San Diego & Imperial Valley) line. It has been called the longest curved railroad trestle and one of the highest wooden trestles in the world."
