The vibrant colors only found in the desert and in the spring are in abundance here. A fairly rugged vehicle is necessary for most of the trip, and 4wheel drive for the final few miles. Don't miss the beautiful sculptures near the entrance.

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.

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 will be back to explore more. mostly 4x4 and motorcycles but heaven in a pre-runner... You can download google earth .kmz and print area maps and/or convert to .usr and add to your Lowrance GPS.

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!
