Trail Overview

Difficulty

Easy: The route climbs gradually the entire way, but the climb is almost imperceptible until the end. Soft sand is the only real challenge. You should definitely have 4-wheel drive. Stock tires will do better if aired down a bit. Be aware that flash floods are possible in Fonts Wash.

History

Fonts Point is one of the most popular viewpoints in Anza-Borrego Desert State Park. Try to time your visit to be there before sunset when views of the ancient Badlands are the most spectacular. You'll gain a better appreciation of the geology if you stop at the visitor center beforehand.
