Looks like some jerks dumped a pickup truck full of garbage at the Whale Peak trail head. Broken tv, old plastic Christmas tree, etc. What's strange is it's not the easiest place to dump trash. This type of stuff drives me nuts.

If you have not already reported it I can let the rangers know.

I have not. That would be great.

What is the best way to reach them?

You could contact the Visitor Center (760) 767-4205 and they can either take the information or help direct you to the right people.

Unbelievable. When was it discovered? My son and I just camped there on April 29-30 and it was spotless. All we could manage for our "leave it cleaner than you found it" was a bottle cap.

It happens, I remember camping in Indian Gorge one one night, we drove in at dusk and when we drove out around 9am the next morning somebody had camped right where you drive in and left a huge bonfire pit of wood pallets, beer bottles, trash, etc.

Did you camp at the end of the road? It may have been cleaned since I was there a 4 weeks or so ago.

We just got back from a weekend trip in Canyon Sin Nombre. Some jerks were tearing up and down the canyon in their jeep for an hour. The next morning at the south mouth of the canyon there was a huge fire with smoldering logs, garbage and broken bear bottles from them throwing them against the canyon walls.

I presume it is the same spot. This is the turn off to the right at the top of Pinyon Mountain Rd before it starts dropping down toward the Squeeze. I will try to attach a couple of pics.

There is actually a spot even more south than where you were-10-20 yards?. The road sort of go up in elevation a bit. It's west of that where the garbage was.

This year we caught a bunch of vehicles at the end of the trail past powder house in the Indian hill area near the tracks. Took pictures of vehicles and plates, gps location and sent to park. I believe Ranger Don handles this side of the park. This is a protected area. Seems like they all had permits to camp at Bow Willow. Don't know what the out come was.

Heres a Picture of Ranger Don repairing the fence to that area the year before. Just ticks me off.

Don should be at Upper Coyote this year...Ranger Mike I believe is at the Bow Willow area but reports to any of them will get to the correct person.

And BTW, motorcycles are ALWAYS out there, usually heading for the RR tracks.

I had a similar situation yesterday when I was hiking in Upper Coyote Canyon. A couple in a jeep came driving down the wash in Upper Willows. They asked if it was possible to drive through to Borrego Springs! Seriously! It was hard to be polite but I told them they weren't supposed to be there in a motorized vehicle and that it was CLEARLY marked before they entered. They did the right thing and turned around and left. Do you report breached areas to the visitor's center?
