El Dorado Canyon

El Dorado Canyon is very remote, accessible only via some truly awful, 4WD-only trails. Unfortunately, the USFS gates are nearly always locked prior to event day, so it is very difficult to recon the checkpoint ahead of time if you've never been there.

El Dorado Canyon is also one of the most difficult sites to reach via radio, as well. It is likely that a cross-band repeater will be set up to improve the coverage. Accordingly, El Dorado Canyon requires both VHF and UHF capability with a Good Mobile, Base Station or Yagi Antenna. Must have Battery or Generator power only.
