    Default River route Xhorias to Skeleton Coast using the Haub River

    Hi all.

    Friend of mine is in Xhorias now and wants to know if he can drive down the Haub River to the coast.

    Is this doable?

    Thanks in advance.

    Any suggestions.

    The trial exits at Desolation Valley and one has a choice either travel north to the C39 or south and travel the next river to the coast?

    Thanks

    It is illegal to enter the Skeleton Coast Park without a permit. And you also only allowed through the two entrance gates, not via river beds. Even though it might physically be doable (I don't know if it is or not), at some point along the riverbed you are going to find signposting to tell you not to proceed further.
