Desert Hiking

 

There are literally thousands of miles that can be hiked in the vast areas of Anza-Borrego Desert State Park.  The most popular hike in the park is Borrego Palm Canyon, easily accessible from the park's Palm Canyon Campground.  The state park visitor center is a good place to get detailed information about other places to hike.

 

If you are looking for a hiking guide book, Hiking Anza-Borrego volumes 1 & 2, by Borregan, Robin Halford, is an excellent choice.  It is widely available in local stores throughout Borrego Springs.

 

Guided hikes are a good option if you want to venture further into the desert but want to go in a group.  Guided hikes are offered by the organizations listed below. Many are free, some may have a fee.  Check their websites for schedules and other information.
