You will need 4 wheel drive and high clearance once you get by 3rd crossing .An alternative is to drive in and hike . You are rewarded with great views , flowing water and lots of canyons to explore.

Coyote Canyon is easy to find and has been very accessible in a small SUV without 4 wheel drive. We drove it on 11/20/14. Unlike other years when we could get past the ford or at least as far as Desert Gardens, we got stuck about 3 miles in. Because of summer rains, the road is not in good condition.... More

We did some primitive camping here for 10 days in the Desert Garden area, about 2-1/2 miles off the end of Digiorgio Road. Daytime temps for the area in late December were very comfortable in the low 70's. Plenty of sunshine. However, they dipped to the high 30's and very low 40's at night and the wind picked up considerably.... More

We were able to easily drive about five miles up the canyon to the bypass road and could probably have gone further but didn't want to challenge our older all-wheel-drive car. Magnificent views. Nice places along the way to pull over and picnic.

We hiked for almost an hour and couldn't find the "oasis" that people refer to. Probably not a good hike to take as it gets closer to summer.

Four-wheel drive, hiking, desert scenery in Anza-Borrego Desert State Park. What is not to like! Lots of place to explore, historic sites, water features.... One of my favorite places to go in ABDSP!

Access to Coyote Canyon is by 4WD or on foot. (Or, I guess, an off road bike?) Well worth it. You cross two washes and then get further up to an actual river - with watercress growing in it! On our trip the first wash was dry, the second had a bit of water in it and further up was... More
