Road to Guale Mesa 2.
« on: November 29, 2018, 01:02:22 PM »
Hi guys, Iím going to be staying at the Guale Mesa 2 camp site in a few weeks and was wondering about the road to get there. Iím driving a 2016 Ford F-150 with stock Goodyear Wrangler tires. Will this be suffient to get to the campsite? Thanks!

Also, is there a trail that takes you from the camping spot to the rancherias loop trail below?

P.s. I have read Roads to Nowhere and plan on having a patch kit, air compressor, 2 spare tires and a satellite messenger (Garmin inReach), plus extra water and food.

Provided that your stock F150 is 4x4, you should be fine. Slow and low as you go for the last three miles as that road is rough as heck. There is a trail that leads south from Guale 2 that will take you to lower Guale Mesa. Great spot!
