Itinerary description


More Anza Borrego Hiking


This is a loop in Culp Valley, the area burned down in 2012 but is growing back strong.

The route will be difficult to follow without a GPS.
Start hiking North East in a wash, crossing the Wilson trail and end up at the Culp Valley Road.
Follow the road for about 400 yards, at that point at a small bypass, take the small wash to the right.
Follow the small sandy wash South/East. Some boulders and steep drops, find a way around.

The next wash, not that clear to see, turn South.
Follow it all the way up to the Wilson Trail, you will encounter small boulders and scrubs.
Cross the Wilson Trail and go down the small wash.

Before the wash gets steep go West and head back over the ridge following Deer/Borrego trail.
