More Anza Borrego Hiking


On Hwy 2 after mile 21 and directly after the Anza Borrego Park sign (from the direction of Borrego Springs) head left on a dirt road.
Head East at the sign Pinyon mountain valley. Follow this dirt road in a high clearance 4x4 to the trail head.
At point A Xing the road runs strait into the canyon. Follow the canyon / wash downhill after some time we meet the main canyon / wash from the right (C Xing).
The small drop at point D gives an idea what is to come.
Just as everything looks ok we meet something at point F we dare not pass, a two stage drop.
But there is an easy way around. Go back 50 Yards and head up the hill / canyon to the right (west). After a short climb there is a nice and easy wash that runs all the way to the canyon we couldn't pass.
Take a look at the drop from the other side. It looks like you actually can make it.
Go back to H Xing and continue strait on south west into a small rocky canyon, that is easy to follow up. More to the end of the canyon it becomes more cross canyon but still easy.
On the other side we make it back to a small canyon to the dirt road.

Hiking time 2Hour 20 Min return.

Parking. Park right before a steeper rocky part that was too much for our 4x4 because of the clearance.
