Things to do in Borrego Springs

Things to do in Borrego SpringsBorrego is unique. It is rich in visual wonder, offering vistas unlike anything you have ever seen or imagined. It can be bustling with the sounds of fun and excitement one minute and stunningly silent the next. It has days that are as bright and sun-filled as one would expect from a desert environment and then, it eclipses into what can only be described as the definition of darkness. A village without a single traffic signal, Borrego speaks to those anxious to know a different pace of living. It is a place to explore, to contemplate, to wander and to wonder!

HERE ARE SOME OF THE “MUST DOS” IN BORREGO:


Anza-Borrego Desert State Park

Borrego Springs is the country’s only community completely surrounded by a state park. Encompassing more than 600,000 acres, Anza-Borrego Desert State Park® is the largest state park in California, the largest desert state park in the United States, and is a UNESCO conservation designated World Biosphere Reserve. With over 500 miles of dirt road, 12 wilderness areas and 110 miles of riding and hiking trails, Borrego visitors are provided an unparalleled opportunity to experience the wonders of the desert. The park features washes, wildflowers, palm groves, cacti and sweeping vistas. Visitors are treated with regular sightings of roadrunners, golden eagles, kit foxes, mule deer, bighorn sheep (the meaning of the word “borrego”) and, of course, the occasional rattler!

Auto Tours-Self Guided
If you are interested in striking out on your own, the Anza-Borrego State Park Visitor Center, 200 Palm Canyon Drive, 760-767-4205, sells a great map of the whole park that designates a dozen or more sites and attractions. Some you really want to experience are Font’s Point (especially at sunset), Southern Emigrant Trail, Erosion Road, Vista del Malpais, Coyote Canyon and the Calcite Mine.

Walking & Hiking
A few of the trails you might decide to explore are Visitor Center Trail, Pena Spring Trail, Culp Valley Lookout Point Trail, Narrows Earth Trail, and Inspiration Point. Again, the Anza-Borrego State Park Visitor Center is the best resource for maps and trail information.[/three_fourth]
