Everything but Font's Point. There is no way the V-Strom is going through there, or any bike, because its off limits...lol
Palm Wash Scenic Overlook
: Easy to get to, just off State Highway S22. TONS OF COPS, be careful.
Access to the Calcite Mine, The Palm Wash Slot, North and South Palm Washes is down a very steep road. Its on the other side of that edge, so pretty steep.
Calcite Mine Trail
: Be careful on the Calcite Trail up the hill, there is a point where the hill is so steep that you will just slide back down, you're brakes are inneffective and the bike's rear tire won't grip....not a great place to be in life..knobbies would have been great, but you can go a long way up.
Palm Wash (North Trail)
: Soft sand, but negotiable, drive very slow, stay in the packed/driven sections, do not get off the trail.
Palm Wash Slot (South Trail)
: Hard track with some soft near the Palm Slot, but that's near the end. Use the same behavior as the Palm Wash. The hike is great.
: Soft, but not as bad as some washes, but you need to pay attention as always because of the deep sand. Take Buttes Trail to get there.
: Hard and soft sections to the lake. Don't go too fast because its gravel and then transitions to sand in spots and you can get some unnecessary excitement. Lake is not really dry until summer so you don't get the cool cracking, etc. Wait until later to do this, but there are pictographs up in the Canyon.
I will be attempting Ocotillo Wells, but I've talked to some 1200GS and 800GS riders and they've done it with the dual sport stockies and knobby and highly recommend knobby. They say you can do it with stockers, but expect to get occasionally stuck and or/go very slow. Will report when I get there. The guy on the GS had knobbies, the guy on the 800 had similar tires to the stock V-Strom.
If you need GPS coordinates, PM me and I'll send out. Some trailheads can be kind of difficult to find.
