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.

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!

Water falls, quiet pools, total tranquility with hardly any humans. If you can make the rough drive, the reward you will never forget

history, scenery, natural history. Enjoy 3rd crossing area, if you can get there. Bring waterproof boots to hike upstream
