sitting here and just discovered that i do not have to go down the Montezuma grade to get to Borrego Springs.......I can take 78 and go through the much milder??? Yaqui Pass from CA 78 and into Borrego Springs.....Is this a good route....

That is the way we always go. 79 from Temecula. Turn on County S2 like we are going to go down Montezuma but continue down to 78 and then to Yaqui. I would not like the 78 out of Julian eastbound through Banner (Banner grade).

However you may not like the Yaqui pass. It is about 3-5 miles of curvy climb but the downhill is very consistent. This is how I, and my wife, like it.

Go to google maps and choose the Terrain option for a good view. They also have Streetview for all these routes.

the banner grade

well.......i took the road less traveled, and now...i am glad i did..had i had not done it without the trailer...i would not have done it with the trailer

79 to 78 and julian...and then you are trapped....not too bad as far a grade is concerned but as windy and curvy as it can be....but just beautiful country...and the yaqui pass was just a pretty desert drive.....wind advisory up today and it is windy in the park...but otherwise beautiful

we're going to Vern Whittaker horse camp outside of Borrego Springs. We'll pop on over to the campground and see if there is a party brewing
