About the park:

The Anza-Borrego Desert is one of the best places for cross country hiking.
It's vast and varied terrain are ideal for day hikes, the hiking times vary from 1 to 8 hours in a brisk pace.

You might want to check our website to find out if this is the place for you.

The park offers only a couple of real marked hiking trails, most of the hikes don't follow any trail, but follow the washes the terrain or go cross country. By foot, this is perfectly legal in most parts of the park, when in doubt check at the visitor center in Borrego Springs.

Safe hiking, we are out hiking most of the time, see you,

Carla and Fred.

At that point the app asks permission to keep recording, even if the app is paused or closed.

Probably the definitive Anza Borrego Hiking app. Access to maps and trails without coverage. Probably couldn't have done whale peak from the south side today with out it. Highly recommend if you are planning on camping/hiking out in Anza Borrego.
