    How are the temps out at Cariso Gorge? Are they San Diego temps or desert? Always wanted to check that place out.

    Pretty sure this is a Fall/Winter/Spring ride unless temps are below normal. It’s out there, very far inland. @evdog would know better than me.

    Edit- 100 out there right now.

    Yeah this isn't the ideal time of year for it, regularly hits 90s'-100s in summar. It could be done as an evening to night ride or pre-sunrise ride to catch sunset/sunrise. Or bikepack and see both. It is only a 2-3% grade so aside from riding on rail ties at times there isn't a ton of effort involved. The nice thing with doing it this time of year would be having the place to yourself. It is getting more and more popular with hikers so you'll see a lot of people out there when temps are cool.

    Look at Jacumba, CA for weather.

    Yep... Resort, not “colony”. I might have been corrected on that fine point once or twice... :whistling:
