Hike Level: Moderately strenuous - ~2 miles round trip, includes several steep hills
Meet: ABDSP Visitor Center flagpole
The mountains along the western flank of Anza-Borrego offer outstanding scenery. Excellent displays of chaparral plants can be seen, some of which may already be blooming. One stop will be made to look for bighorn sheep.
This moderately strenuous hike covers about 2 miles round-trip and includes several steep hills at an elevation just over 3,000 feet. A portion of the hike will be off-trail through rocky terrain where there will be lots of cacti, so long pants and substantial leather boots or shoes are highly recommended.
2WD vehicles OK. Total driving distance is about 25 miles round-trip.
Bring: snack/lunch, lots of water, camera, binoculars, hat, sun protection, and jacket/layered clothing. It can be cool and windy in March.
Limited to 16 participants
