$20/$15 for ABF Members

Leader: Diana Lindsay, co-author of the sixth edition of Anza-Borrego Desert Region

Join us for a Valentine’s weekend getaway to explore the geology and vegetation of Nude Wash. This moderate two-mile loop has a challenging set of dry waterfalls to scale. Geologic features include signs of detachment faulting and fault-sheared and gouged granitic and metamorphic outcrops. We will climb to a saddle and then hike down a ridge that overlooks Sunset Wash and has great views of the Borrego Badlands. Elevation gain is up to 100 feet. Hops at the end of the hike provided by Burning Beard Brewery in El Cajon!

Situated in the northwest corner of El Cajon, Burning Beard is in the heart of the City’s commercial and industrial core. We serve not only the hard working men and women of our community, but all those who seek out and appreciate top quality, expertly crafted San Diego beer.


Bring: Snacks, lunch, lots of water, sturdy shoes, sun protection, and whatever else you need to be comfortable in the varying conditions of a desert winter. Be sure to bring a chair to lounge in at the end! 

Meet: at the Nude Wash turnoff. It is not signed, so we will send meeting location info to participants when the date gets closer.  

Hikes & Hops and Bikes & Brews with Anza-Borrego Foundation

Good scenery, good beer, good company

Hikes & Hops and Bikes & Brews connect people with two things in common — a love of Anza-Borrego and craft beer. Hikes & Hops is a social hike series in Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, with Bikes & Brews being the same but with mountain and road bike rides. Join us for a hike and a beer or a bike and a brew!

**This event includes the consumption of alcohol. Families with children are welcome if they can keep up with the group or be carried. ABF may request photo ID for any participant who looks 30 and under. Only those over the age of 21 will be allowed to participate in the “hops” portion of the event. Be responsible when drinking. Camping in Anza-Borrego Desert State Park is encouraged and there are several hotels in Borrego Springs. At the very least, please visit one of our Borrego Partner restaurants for a good meal before heading home.
