More Anza Borrego Hiking


On the S2 mile 22-23. Butterfield Stage Route, Blair Valley. Take this good dirt road, most of the time for all cars. Follow the signs Pictograph Trail, as we use the same parking. Start the trail along the Pictograph Trail, after about 0.7 mile turn left into another canyon, along the wash. After another mile turn right into a small canyon with boulders, lots of them. This is a boulder hike finding your way up, seeking left and right for the easiest route. Not too difficult but you need some experience scrambling up and down boulders. Just as you think this is a nice path there is always something there to surprise you. A lot of huge boulders, a dry waterfall, dense scrubs, but there is always a way around. You can take this hike either way up. But it is better to go right first, going out the canyon (against the posted GPS route) This is the more difficult part, the more direct route to the top and more difficult (loose rocks) to go down). This said, the way continuing in the canyon, this is the most difficult part... as the canyon is a bit blocked. But the good part: stretches of the hike are on a fairly good hiking trail, especially on the return trip. Hiking time 3 hours up, 2 hours 30 min down. A nice satisfying hike, but take care it is easy to fall when you get more tired on your hike. And it is a bit cooler than Borrego Springs, by at least 10F.
