Back in the mid-1800’s, a stage route was established across the Jacumba Mountains which are located along the Mexican border and just south of the Anza Borrego Desert State Park. Its purpose was to connect the growing towns of San Diego, California and Yuma, Arizona and while improvements were made to help accommodate the very first automobiles back in the early 1900’s, the route was abandoned after the completion of U.S. Highway 80 and the subsequent Interstate 8. Thanks to a major storm in the 1970’s, a portion of the route that cut through Devil’s Canyon was washed away and for the most part, all but lost to history.

Cindy and I first heard about Devil's Canyon about 10 years ago after reading about a few guys who went looking for this old stage route and to see if it could still be run. Soon after its rediscovery, it became one of the hottest trails to run in the San Diego and Imperial County area and because of it, the BLM quickly shut it down as the area was home to endangered Big Horn Sheep. Since that time, we had all but forgotten about this trail but after getting recent word that people were running it again and legally, we knew it was something we had to look into.

After doing some research, I found that the BLM was in fact allowing LIMITED access to Devil's Canyon but ONLY WITH A PERMIT. And, what I can tell you is that unless you're planning to run this trail with Tierra del Sol or another club that has access to it, you might as well still consider this trail to be CLOSED! Not only do you have to apply for a $100 permit 180 days in advance, you are only allowed to run the trail on one of seven Saturday's between October 1st and April 30th and it cannot be on a Saturday following a previous run. In addition to that, you are limited in the amount of vehicles that can participate, you will need to fill out a 27 page application that requires you to include plans for medical emergencies and evacuation routes which, really is all fair and reasonable enough but, what will ultimately stump most people and almost stumped us as well is the proof of liability insurance the BLM requires for $500,000 per occurrence and a $1,000,000 aggregate! I should note that just about every insurance company I called with the hopes of obtaining a one day policy like this laughed at me and told me that the BLM is effectively telling people that they don't want anyone on the trail! 7 months after I had applied for our permit and with any hopes of getting an an insurance policy starting to run out, Off Road Evolution stepped up to the plate and offered to let us ride on their policy. Needless to say, a BIG THANK YOU needs to go out to them for making this run and this film possible.

Unfortunately for us, by the time we got everything in order, the only Saturday left for us to run the trail was the last one of April. Needless to say, summer was already in full force down in the Yuha Desert and daytime temps were already well within the triple digits. Also, our 2007 Jeep JK Wrangler known as Moby was out of commission and so we would have to run it in our newer 2012 JK known as Rubicat. While this wouldn't normally be a problem, it had a blown power steering pump and we wouldn't be able to get a replacement until after the run. Of course, being that this was the only chance we might ever have at running this amazing trail, Cindy and I decided we needed to just do it regardless of having to do it handicapped.

Along for the ride on this epic trek, we had Doug, his daughter Jessa, her boyfriend Jim, Moochie, Don, Et, Tony, Stephanie, Derek, Ray, his son Kevin and tagging along as a support photographer, we had our friends Dave and Laura joining us as well. In all, we had a total of 8 Jeep JK Wrangler in our group and most of which were just running 37" tires. As far as lift kits go, a few in our group were running EVO Bolt-On coil overs, a couple had EVO DTD with EVO Levers and one was running a Full-Traction long arm kit. Aside from Doug who was running Dyantrac ProRock 60's front and rear, just about everyone else was running factory axles. Essentially, we were just a group of regular people in moderate to semi-well built rigs.

The Devil's Canyon trail is approximately 3 miles long and roughly parallels the westbound lanes of Interstate 8. If you run the trail east to west like we did, it's an uphill climb to the top, over large granite boulders more bodacious than Kim Kardashian's ass and with deep soft sand in between just to kick things up a notch. While it did ultimately take us 15 hours to run and required us to do some unintended night wheeling, it should be noted that EVERYONE in our group was encouraged to take on ALL the biggest obstacles and be individually filmed doing it as well. This slowed thing down for us tremendously and we really need to thank all our friends for their patience and understanding for what we were trying to do. If this was the only time we would ever get to run this trail, we wanted to make sure we documented everything as carefully as possible and we hope that you enjoy this film we made from it.

Ladies and gentlemen... BEDEVILED!

Another epic video! I can't imagine pushing 37's through those rocks with no power steering! I have a hard enough time with 35's and working steering in much easier terrain that I swear I'm going hydro assist when I step up to 37's.

Thanks for sharing such a well shot video and challenging run with all of us.

Congratulations!! :thumb:

3 miles.... I cannot believe that. What an awesome adventure and a great video. Thanks eddie and cindy for all the hard work. Another Great wayalife video for the books. :thumb::thumb:

Yeah, only 3 miles long. It was crazy tough and we did encourage everyone to take on the hardest lines. That plus we filmed everyone with more than one camera so it was an epic day for sure. Of course, the break we had didn't help anything :crazyeyes:

Glad you enjoyed it :yup:


So stoked, Ive been waiting all day!

Hope it was worth it :cool:


Very cool! I want a do over:)

No kidding!! I think we're gonna have to figure out a way to make it happen again :yup:


Hard

F'ing

Core

LOL!! Well, it was a bit tougher than going to the mall. :crazyeyes:


Excellent video! I'm so glad you guys had a wonderful trip and thank you so much for bringing the rest of us along for the ups and downs of an amazing ride.

So glad that you could experience some of the wheeling we do through our videos :)


Wow! Turned out amazing! Thank you again for all the hours behind the screen to give us such high quality films! Cheers!

Thank you, we really do appreciate the kind words and so glad you enjoyed it.


"Over boulders more bodacious than Kim Kardashian's ass" lol. Great video

:cheesy: I was wondering if anyone would catch that :D


Great vid as always - incredible trails you find out there! Keep it up!


Love that he thought he was going to stop the roll by reaching out to stiff arm the rock!

Great video!

LOL!! To be fair, it is one of the hardest things to remember - to keep your hands INSIDE your Jeep as you will NOT be able to stop your Jeep from going over. I don't think Don has ever done it again since this trip. :D


Damn! that was a long long awesome day

So glad that you were able to join us for this run :thumb:

Thank you. Editing is by far one of the hardest parts of making a film like this. We really appreciate you taking notice of our efforts.


Just watched it and it totally awesome!! The music the edits made it a fantastic video. Congratulations on a job well done!!
Now I have to watch it again. :D

LOL!! It was great to have you along for this run. Can't wait to do more runs like it with you in the near future :yup:


Great job guys. That's my kind of fun!

Thanks Russ, I think you would have enjoyed this trail for sure. :yup:


Great job on all the legwork that made that run possible.

Thanks - believe me, there was a lot of legwork (in the literal sense as well) to make this film possible.


Awesome! Well worth the wait of course

Glad to hear it, thank you. :cool:


Truly awesome video and hard core wheeling. My mall crawler would just tuck tail and run. Thanks for the hard work you and Cindy put into this video. Great job as always.

:cheesy: Well, I hope you know that if you had joined us for this run, we would have done all that we could to help you through it :yup:


Very cool.

Great job on the video!

We really enjoyed watching it and wished we were there. :yup:

Glad to hear you and your family enjoyed it and I hope you will be able to join us on runs like this in the future. :yup:

Bust out the winch on the first rock. Yep, gonna be a long 3 miles. :-)

Oh yeah, we right there and then it was going to be a long day :crazyeyes:


Excellent job Eddie and Cindy!! The video came out great. Can't wait to watch it again! :thumbup:

Glad to hear that it was good enough for you to want to watch again :cool:


Enjoyed the hell out of it! Can't wait for the next one. :yup:

Thanks Ty, we really do appreciate it!


What a crazy trail. 3 miles of hell. It appears the trail's name sums it up. Great video.

It really was hell to run but almost more so just to get a permit to run it. The trail's name really does sum it all up. :crazyeyes:


New YouTube crack!!! Woohoo!. Great video and killer trail. I can't believe how hard that looked. I only have JK Experience videos to compare to but wow. Impressive and makes me want to spend more money on the JK.

Thank you, we're so glad that you enjoyed it and hope that it could compare to some of the JK-Experience videos we've done in the past.


Another incredible video you guys! That trail was intense!

The trails out there are no joke but this one really took the cake for sure. :crazyeyes:


Great job as usual another great wayalife video! What a hard core trail!!

Well, it wasn't easy by any means but is almost harder just to get a permit to run it.


Epic! 3 miles of awesomeness! Well done everyone!

Thank you, it really was 3 miles I will never forget :crazyeyes:


Totally awesome! Thanks for capturing all the action. So jealous...

Thank you, we really try our hardest and we're glad that we were able to capture as much as we were able to.


Great as always!!!! Thanks for sharing!!! Someday, I hope to run a trail with you guys....

That would be awesome if you could join us some day.

I can't wait until I have a chance to watch the whole thing. I'm fascinated already by your description.

Well, I hope you're not disappointed by what you see when you can finally see it :crazyeyes:


That was great! wow 3 miles 15 hours...

I do have to say once the sun set I started hearing the Gilligan's Island theme song in my head :beer::beer::beer: :thumb:


That's a great video! 15 hours to go 3 miles! Crazy!


Wow what another great video. 15 hrs for 3 miles crazy but awesome. Thank Eddie and Cindy


That was absolutely unbelievable video thank you Eddie and Cindy for your time and effort :thumb:

The trail was amazing cant get over how it was only 3 miles and took 15 hours to complete just amazing :thumb:

LOL!! I think we were hearing the Gilligan's Island theme song too :crazyeyes:
The trail was tough for sure but really, I have to give a BIG THANKS to all our friends for being so patient with us. We for sure could have run the trail faster but filming, and doing it the way we wanted took a lot more time. Of course, the break and wheeling on crazy big rocks in the dark didn't help much :crazyeyes:


Intense! Looks like one hell of a trip. Thanks for sharing guys! I look forward to every video like it's my birthday or something! 

LOL!! Thank you, we're so glad to hear it :yup:


Wow!! That trail is gnarly!!! Looks awesome! Nice job everyone! Eddie and Cindy crazy cool video!!

It's without question, one of the harder trails we've run. Glad you enjoyed the film - we miss you and Ray.


Great vid of an awesome trail. Funny the blm is so worried about the bighorn, they hang around the shoulder of I-8 munching grass as traffic roars by.

Don't even get me started, the whole thing is a joke and really, just a way for them to keep the trail closed without having it being "officially" closed. :naw:


Wow. Those are some big rocks! Great video as always! Cheers

Well, they were a bit bigger than the speed bumps at the local mall, that's for sure :crazyeyes:


Awesome video! I hope one day my jeep will get me through one of those obstacles in one piece!!

You know, with the right friends to help you though, I have no doubts that your Jeep could get you through something like this.


i love these videos, now to just sell a kidney so i can build a rig worthy of one of these videos..

:cheesy: Honestly, with a little time, patience and good spotting, you'd be surprised at what your Jeep could do as is. :yup:


Yes!!! Watching on the big screen!! 157119

That is so cool :thumb:


And thats why you cut stock fenders instead of buying steel ones.

That's what I keep telling people but some still think I'm just a hater :crazyeyes:

Totally awesome. Thank you for creating and sharing.


Ed and Cindy,

You got an A plus for video. As always! Great trail! WOW!

Thank you, we're so glad you enjoyed it :cool:


Another epic video! I can't imagine pushing 37's through those rocks with no power steering! I have a hard enough time with 35's and working steering in much easier terrain that I swear I'm going hydro assist when I step up to 37's.

Thanks for sharing such a well shot video and challenging run with all of us.

Honestly, I was sore for days after this run. If it had been any other trail, I would have taken a rain check. Being that we really only had this one shot at running it - we just bit the bullet and did it in spite of our handicap. It totally sucked!


Wow, just wow!! Learned a couple of things from this epic vid. Stock axles are way tougher than I thought and factory skids get the job done.:yup:

Oh yeah, stock axles and factory skids are what I ran on this trail and still run up front on Rubicat. I just don't understand why so many people are so eager to spend money on things they don't really need. :crazyeyes:


Wow!

Very good video. Thank you for taking the time to not only run this trail, but to film it as well.

The Wife and I really enjoyed it.

Thanks again.

So glad to hear both you and your wife enjoyed the film :yup:


It's really cool for an east coast family to be able to "take part" in stuff like this. Thanks for the work & sharing!

We're so glad that you could enjoy a run like this through our videos. :cool:


Awesome video, thanks so much for sharing! BTW, does everyone carry a spare axle shaft(s)?

No, not everyone. We try to distribute the load so that everyone has a bit of everything. :yup:


When is the JKX videos coming out?

We are no longer participating on the JKX and we are not making any videos for them.


Nice video! Looks like a fun trail!

It's fun for sure but it so hard to run legally, it's almost not even worth it. Maybe someday we'll go through the trouble to make it happen again and if we do, you'll have to join us. :yup:

Another solid entry into the library; sometimes the best trail memories are the ones that took the extra hours to complete.

Also, crazy how much red tape it took to get to run it, judging by the size of those boulders you'd think they'd just let them act as natural gatekeepers :)

Finally- solid cinematography. I wish I had the premier skills to do half as well :) thanks for sharing!

But if you're having fun with great friends, I suppose it's not hard to walk away with a smile after such an achievement.

Without question, it's the hard runs that you really remember the most. As far as the red tape goes, I'm pretty sure the BLM never wanted to reopen the trail at all. This is just their way of saying that it is still open without actually being open to everyone. :naw:

LOL!! Yup, just another trip to the mall :D Well, as I had said earlier, a lot of the time had to do with the fact that we were having everyone take on the hardest obstacles we could and we made sure to film them individually. That takes a lot of time to do and we were just grateful that everyone was cool with it especially being there was nothing cool about the daytime temps!


Great video guys! :clap2: That looks like a tough trail there

Well, it certainly wasn't one of the easiest we've done. For sure there were lines we could have taken that were a lot easier but what fun would that be :crazyeyes:


No offense to jeep fan. But his rig is a moderate built jeep.

All the Jeeps you see are JK Rubicons. They have electronic sway bar disconnects - the links are not removed like you would do on a Sport of Sahara. Granted, there were a couple of times where some of us may have accidentally left the sway bar connected :blush:

Thanks for another excellent film! That's has to be the longest 3 miles ever. I only hope to someday be able to build my rig up to the level of those in the film to be able to partake in adventures like this.

Honestly, for a trail like this, the only thing you really would have needed was 35" on a 2-door or 37" for a 4-door and whatever is needed to get you to that point. Of course, rocker guards and tow points front and rear would be a requirement. Otherwise, you could get to this level without breaking the bank. Glad that you enjoyed the film. :yup:

Well, we all knew that it was going to be a tough trail and really, that's part of the fun - being able to work with our good friends and together, get everyone through. It's one of the things that we missed about bigger organized events that we used to attend.


Another awesome video!

I also liked that you listed the major modifications for each rig. That lets everyone know what is needed to make it through a trail of that difficulty level.

Awesome, Cindy and I thought some of you would appreciate seeing specs on the rigs to give you a better idea of what we were running on this trail.

Eddie and Cindy,
Thanks again for another KICK ASS video. Really nice touch with who is who and the break down of what each rig is running.

Only 1 dent, 1 broken axle, not bad. No power steering had to be "fun".

The 1 dent could have been avoided and for that, I still feel bad as I was the one spotting everyone though and should have seen it. The 1 broke axle is really a surprise being that the rocks at the end were the real deal. They were crazy big but what really made it tough is that they were moving around and changing their position with each rig that came up. We easily could have seen more breaks like it but felt fortunate that we didn't. The power steering thing just SUCKED! If this were any other trail without all the stupid requirements that the BLM has in place, I would have just postponed the run until I could get one of my Jeeps working. Fortunately, all our friends were very patient with me having to go back and forth over and over again until I could kind of get my Jeep pointing in the direction that I needed or at least, in the times when it was even possible. :crazyeyes:


That video is awesome!! Thank you Eddie and Cindy for all the hard work and time you guys put into your films. They are definitely the best videos out. Someday I'll hopefully make it out west to wheel with you guys.

Thank you, there are a lot of videos out there and some that are made by paid professional film crews and we're glad that you would think so highly of ours. In a lot of ways, this was more of a home movie of our good friends out on a trail than anything. :crazyeyes:


As always it was another amazing video! Well worth the wait!


Great video. I am never disappointed with your work. Fantastic work. Thanks Eddie and Cindy!

Glad to hear it :cool:


Now that I've had time to watch it... That was one of the best I've seen! Looks like the trip was a blast! The editing was Very well done. All around, you guys are a bunch of pros! (But you probably already knew that.) Thanks for sharing this adventure!

:cheesy: We really appreciate it but professionals get paid to do what they do. Not that I'm complaining but really, Cindy and I have always enjoyed documenting all the fun we have on the trail and with our good friends. We're grateful to know that you enjoyed what we've made :yup:


As always, very nicely done. This is a nice look at a trail that most of us will never see in person. Thank you!

It really is sad to think but unfortunately, you're right and that sucks. Even if you lived in the area and had a Jeep capable of running this trail, the government has basically made it so that you can't run it - or at least, legally. :grayno:


Quite an epic adventure! Hard to believe the insurance requirement!

The insurance thing was the real kicker and what made getting a permit to run this trail near impossible or at least, for the average Joe.

LOL!! It sure felt like we were in a ring of fire on that trail. The song would have been prefect too but the copyright on it would have prevented us from airing the video on mobile devices. Sure wish you could have joined us on this run. I hope you'll be in a position in the near future to be able to join us for other runs like this. It would be great to see you and Jen on the trail again :yup:

I made sure during the video to keep my hands inside the vehicle the whole time ;)

steve, the funny part about that was Cindy’s voice behind me saying “I got that” on video … AARRGGHH please don’t use that!!! Oh well, the way the jeep lurched to the drivers side it was just a natural reaction; one that I have worked hard not to repeat! :blush:

Y'all had all that trouble, when the old timers drove Model A's down that road?

Awesome and hairy.

I loved the history at the beginning along with who the drivers were and the Jeep spec's at the end. Of course the rest was filled with nail biters. 5 hours a mile, wow. I miss the west.

I missed this yesterday. I was busy making custom jeep parts.

Awesome video!!! Loved it! Looked fun and intense all the way through! And Iv noticed a trend in toyo tires! Looks like they worked good for everyone

Oh, without question, Toyo MT's are one of the toughest tires we've ever run and in a 37, they have near bullet proof sidewalls. The only downside to them is that the Range E rating means you'll have a slightly rougher ride on pavement - that is, if you run them at 30 psi or higher.


Fantastic production once again. Superior editing and videography thank you for everything that you do Eddie and Cindy. I watched it with my wife last night we both enjoyed it. It was definitely worth the wait.

I cannot believe how you are so humble Eddie. This movie was produced EXTREMELY well. I have yet to find better produced movies with Jeeps. This production was very high quality and I just cannot overstate how enjoyable they are to watch.. again.. again… and again.

It is amazing how much fun 0.20 miles per hour is. I was never into rock crawling until I watched your videos. No I am excited so get started with my build next year. I hope to make one of your runs in the Fall of 2016. Also, your advise is much appreciated. The Jeeps in this video were clearly setup correctly and I especially appreciate the build information. I paused the video several times during this portion to take notes.

And man Eddie, did you look tired at 22:50. That was an epic trail that few people are adventurous enough to even try, and yet you filmed it. Awesome production skills, great off-roading skills, excellence all the way around here. Thank you.

We always enjoy the WAL videos but after getting to meet many of the stars in person, it was a somehow more special. I'm not sure I can explain it, but there was almost a bit of jelousy before for some of these guys and gals.... I'm still jealous :blush: , but it was different this time (for the better).

Very cool video! What a trail! Videos and pics don't generally do justice in terms of the actual size of things compared to when you are there in person. But even on video those rocks look huge. I can only imagine in person how big they really are! I did not know Trailbud was running a semi-float PR60 and doing just fine with 40s. In case I ever upgrade to a larger tire size, it is good to know the semi-float PR60 will handle the job. Thanks again for the great vid!

Wow, that would be cool. Just remember that there's a limit as to how many people can go and there are only 7 Saturdays a year that they allow people to run it so we'll need to keep this on the down low during the planning process - if you can make it happen :yup:

Oh yeah, he's running a semi-float 60 just like we used to run back in the day. Honestly, if he were doing it with a set of 40x13.50's, I think it would be fine but with his massive 40x15.50's, it's borderline too much. Like us, he has broken one flange in the past. It is the reason why we moved up to a full-floater.

That would be awesome!! I would love to do that only thing that sucks is I had to sale my jeep because it was getting too expensive but I'm working on getting an older one here soon! 

Awe man, I didn't know that, what a bummer! Maybe look into getting an XJ, they are typically dirt cheap and easy to mod.

So after watching it 5 times, I still cant get over how "real deal" this captures the epic trek. It speaks volumes to all the planning and passion about the adventure and the commitment to sharing it by you and Cindy. Beyond the incredibly professional production, what i love is the story telling of which none was planned.
You and Cindy truly love this and it shows. That part at the end of the video when you close and its clear its been a really long adrenaline day is priceless. Thank you both for letting me share the adventure with great friends. 👏

I was finally able to watch this film, and I must say; it was fantastic!

You guys do an excellent job with Editing, effects, and most importantly wheeling.

Your videos do an incredible job of painting a picture on what a "Wayalife" truly is. Not just driving over stuff and having a lifted vehicle, but sharing a common interest with friends, having a great time exploring some history, and overcoming challenging obstacles on some of the best trails in the Country.

Proud to be apart of this community.

Wow, that would be cool. Just remember that there's a limit as to how many people can go and there are only 7 Saturdays a year that they allow people to run it so we'll need to keep this on the down low during the planning process - if you can make it happen :yup:


What planning process?...;)

Awesome video Eddie! Thanks for sharing. The trail looks like a beast! Do you mind sharing what video editing software you use? I'm currently using the go pro software which is okay but doesn't allow you to do much. Looking forward to your next video!

Another awesome video guys! :thumb: We really appreciate all the hard work you two put into the adventures. An epic day on the trail with great friends in a place where very few travel - priceless!!! :yup:




steve, the funny part about that was Cindy’s voice behind me saying “I got that” on video … AARRGGHH please don’t use that!!! Oh well, the way the jeep lurched to the drivers side it was just a natural reaction; one that I have worked hard not to repeat! :blush:

In all honesty Don I prob would have reacted the same way just because it is just a natural reaction.

Finally got the time to sit down and watch this - all I can say is wow...this was an epic run and like so many have said - would not have been possible without good friends watching out for each other. Best times of your life are spent with good friends in strange places - sometimes your just lucky enough to be able to relive it because talented people are a part of it. Thanks Eddie and Cindy for making all of it possible.

Oh yeah, what was worse is that the rocks heated up and the whole canyon felt like a furnace and well into the night. It sucked!

Thank you, we really do appreciate it and we're so glad that you would feel this way. As much as we love the challenge of driving over stuff, it in and of itself is not what's most important to us. For us, it's more like icing on the cake to everything else. I'm glad that you are a part of this community. :cool:

Awesome video Eddie! Thanks for sharing. The trail looks like a beast! Do you mind sharing what video editing software you use? I'm currently using the go pro software which is okay but doesn't allow you to do much. Looking forward to your next video!

We use Adobe Premier BUT, I should warn you that it isn't an easy piece of software you can just pick up and use. If you're willing to learn it, you will find it to be useful. Of course, Final Cut is the industry standard.


Loved the video! It's good to see the regular wayalife crew again.

Glad to hear it. We're glad to be featuring our regular crew again too. :yup:

Glad to hear it was worth a second watch. As for the time and distance, again, I just have to thank all our friends for being as patient with us as they were.

Another awesome WAL video Eddie & Cindy. Thanks for taking us along for the ride - we felt like we were there right with you! Stephanie you killed it girl! Some day I (Naomi) want to grow up and be a real driver like you and Cindy are! Loved the individual commentary. Loved the music too - especially at the end when you were making the last hard run in the dark. It made it so suspenseful that I found myself sitting on the edge of my chair leaning into the computer screen. Kudos to you Eddie for making the run with no power steering! Russ says your arms looked like Popeye arms by the end! So glad you were able to make this run so you could share it with us!

As far as driving goes, all you've got to do is get out there and do it. Time behind the wheel = experience :yup:

Another epic video! I can't imagine pushing 37's through those rocks with no power steering! I have a hard enough time with 35's and working steering in much easier terrain that I swear I'm going hydro assist when I step up to 37's.

Thanks for sharing such a well shot video and challenging run with all of us.

Congratulations!! :thumb:

I really enjoyed the video. All of them for that matter. That's one thing that has inspired me to build to go out west. The fact is not only you get the views of a life time, but the sense of history you get visiting these type of trails. Great Video!
