The Jack Rabbit Trail – KTM 950 Adventure – California Dreamin’ Ep. 1

The Jack Rabbit Trail is a mile-long stretch of dirt road midway through a seemingly nameless and nearly flat stretch of plain in the Sonoran Desert between Moreno Valley, Beaumont and Hemet in Southern California. This adventure begins on the Jack Rabbit Trail and extends for a wandering meander towards the mountains to the east, skirting foothills and small, stretches of abandoned habitation including deserted homes, strange old mining sites of mining equipment, lost roads and curious desert sights. Below is a list of the stops along the way including Google Earth GPS coordinates:

1. The Jack Rabbit Trail: 33°55’26.26″N 117° 7’14.47″W

2. Abandoned Treehouse: 33°55’45.75″N 117° 8’17.60″W

3. Abandoned Hotel California: 33°49’21.71″N 116°58’21.09″W

4. Road Wood: 33°55’18.12″N 117° 7’16.57″W

5. Chimney Stones: 33°48’19.45″N 116°56’20.55″W

6. Soboba Casino: 33°46’52.40″N 116°55’2.70″W

The Path of WildnessThe Path of Wildness is easy to find
The course of a stream
Leaves blown in the wind
A beast’s track through the brush
And the direction of our first inclination

The Path of Wildness is an answer and response to a prescribed way of life which may leave some individuals with a sense that their living is little more than a series of pre-determined, step-like episodes between birth and death. The stages of living between these events: childhood, adolescence, adulthood, parenthood and senior are themselves natural and in accord with the needs of the species and most individuals. Many find their satisfaction in living this course and to these individuals I have little or nothing to say. Others though long for something more; something innate, genetic and seemingly calling. Adventure and change can give a degree of satisfaction and relief yet even these may seem too tame. To those who feel drawn to something beyond the entertainment and stimulation of senses I offer a walk along The Path of Wildness. Don’t bother penciling the event in your schedule, preparing a pack with goodies and supplies or even inviting a friend along, for this experience is along the course of your first inclination and you must surely always go alone.
