Want to test or improve your 4X4 driving skills? Ocotillo Wells SVRA has an adrenaline-fueled addition: the Truckhaven 4X4 Training Area.
It consists of 22 colorfully named obstacles spread across 30 acres in the northern section of the park. Built out of heavy equipment tires, logs, concrete tubes, boulders and more (sealed together with Shotcrete and good old-fashioned dirt), these obstacles are ranked in three difficulty ratings.
The materials used were donated by a variety of stakeholders, and the course was designed to protect the area’s desert flavor. Recent additions include a vehicle-free, shaded observation area with picnic tables to watch the action, plus restrooms.
For your own safety, ATVs and motorcycles are prohibited from the area.
