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.

Access Description

Take Highway S22 east from Borrego Springs about 11 miles from center of town. Look for a sign on the right near mile marker 29. From Salton City, take S22 west about 17 miles.
