Join us on a backcountry wilderness driving tour filled with great sightseeing and photographic opportunities. Our journey begins at the Augustine Staging Area, where you will board the back of an open-air, ten-seat, 4-wheel drive vehicle for a 10-to-20 mile tour of Limestone Canyon. We will stop occasionally for 10-15 minutes or so to admire the views, take photos and answer questions. At one point we’ll park and hike to Dripping Springs, a 2 mile round trip hike, with 200 ft. of elevation gain. Then we will drive further to the Sinks, to view Orange County’s mini-“Grand Canyon”. When not admiring the canyons and ridges, you’ll enjoy the wilderness setting. Depending on the season, fields of wildflowers may also present themselves.
Reviewing the 1-through-5 Difficulty Ratings will help you evaluate your readiness to participate in this level-2 activity on the land.
Bring your camera equipment, or just enjoy the ride. Be prepared, as an observer, to accompany the Conservancy docents on narrow, winding, bumpy (dusty) dirt roads with steep hills and slick rock surfaces. A hat, jacket, sunscreen, water and snacks are recommended. The number of spaces is strictly limited. Please be confident your schedule permits you to attend due to the limited spaces available.
