More Anza Borrego Hiking


Accessible by all Cars from the S2 close to Marker 27. Park at a large parking area on the east side of the road. At the parking it is about 20 Min to the Rainbow Canyon Wash (go South East). Follow close to the road (down) or go (South East) cross country as we did through a beautiful cactus "Forrest". Enter the sandy wash of Rainbow Canyon and head east - north east. The hiking is fairly easy on the whole stretch except for the part after "difficult". After this part there is as short stretch with dry rocky waterfalls, nothing very difficult but you may need your hands at times. As we near the end of the canyon, the canyon ends more or less and you have to go cross country (easy not too much vegetation) until hitting another wash that goes downhill on the other side of the mountain. Follow this wash down. At the point "Xing - cross country" go a bit left a couple of 100 yards out of the wash cross country (easy not too much vegetation) until you hit a dirt road of a primitive campsite. Follow this road until you hit the California Riding and Hiking Trail. Follow the CRHT left (west). You will get closer to the road, but the trail will go lower into a box canyon. When you reach the road (S2) again as the CRHT crosses the road, go left just before the road on a faint trail along the road. After a short stretch the trail goes left, away from the road in a wash towards the parking. Hiking Time 3 Hour 40 Min return.
