I am thinking about the best route of going from Salton Sea to Cuyamaca Lake. Would be 3 day trip, in winter/cooler weather, with water caches. I put this route together. Any thoughts or improvements would be appreciated. Rough draft-https://caltopo.com/m/VBL1

I've had the same goal for some time now, with most of my proposed routes coming in at around 65-75 miles. Your route comes in at about 68 miles from your Caltopo link. Doing that in 3 days seems ambitious, even with water drops, but maybe you're ultra-running it or hiking through the night? If you do it during a full-moon and get lucky with the weather, you can save on water by doing some night sections, especially in the eastern half where terrain is easier.

Can't do full research right now but Google Lost Boys 50 mile ultra run. I used to run that foot race and it went from pinyon wash to cuyamaca vc/school. Will take a look at route later when I get a chance.
