Superstition Mountain is located in Imperial County, north of the Plaster City OHV Open Area. This area presents an array of challenging OHV riding opportunities. Cross-country OHV use is permitted within the boundaries of this area. Limited use areas and military practice bombing targets are immediately adjacent to the open area. Please observe all posted signs and do not enter the bombing ranges.

The back side (north) of the mountain has developed 4×4 tails to suite every vehicle and driver experience. Most of the trail were developed over the past 14 years by the San Diego 4 Wheelers. The Black Cat trail was awarded BF Goodrich’s Outstanding Trail Award in 2010 for the outstanding work the SD4W club provided in working with the local government agencies to promote responsible use, conservation and maintenance while maintaining fun for all.


How to Get There From San Diego Area:
Go east on Interstate 8 about 100 miles, almost to El Centro.Take the Dunaway Rd exit, go north (left) to S-80/Evan Hughes Hwy. Turn right (east). Go 4.2 miles. Turn left on to Huff Road(north). The sign at Huff Rd. is somewhat obscured by trees, so watch closely for it. Follow Huff Rd. 6.2 miles to Wheeler Road (dirt road) and turn left. Be careful to turn left on the 2nd Wheeler Rd. that is paved.

You are now going west. Follow Wheeler Road about 7 miles, past a couple of forks to the left. You will enter the Superstition Mtn OHV area after about 2 miles. After about five miles the road will turn to the right and you will be heading approximately due north. The main camping/registration area will be on
your left.

How to Get There From L.A., and Points North:
From 1-10, just east of Indio, take 86 expressway south. This newly opened route bypasses the center of Indio and Coachella, much faster and nicer with a tow, and now gives a straight shot all the way to Westmorland. Continue on 86 south to Westmorland. At the stop sign turn right (south). This becomes Forrester Road. Take Forrester Road out of town just past Carter Road to Imler Road. Turn right (west) on Imler Road. Imler will veer south and become Huff Road. There are two dips in the road a mile or so apart. Just over the hill following the second dip is Wheeler Road. Turn right and follow the road next to the hills to camp, about 7 miles.
