Hiking to Goat Canyon Trestle, legally

Local hikers know the landmark: Goat Canyon Trestle, hidden away in the Anza-Borrego desert’s remote Carrizo Gorge. It’s a strenuous, cross-country, boulder-scrambling, cholla-infested ordeal to get a glimpse of it from a distance, and getting there by bush-whacking along the bottom of the gorge is a steep battle. Some hike along the railroad tracks, but it is a federal crime of trespass to do so. Reena Deutsch describes her attempts to obtain permission from the railroad owners to lead organized hikes along the tracks. She will also share tales of four hikes through sixteen tunnels and over small trestles.
