Trail Overview

Borregoanger cabin is a foundation deep in the National Forest next to an unusual quartz and granite promontory. The trail to reach the cabin leaves from the Borrego Mesa Trail and climbs down switchbacks into one of the canyons next to the mesa. The trail is mainly pine forest, though the end breaks out into an open meadow surrounding the remaining foundation from the cabin and the rock promontory. Most of the trail is relatively easy, though there is a short section with deep ruts with one spot requiring an off-camber transition. Not recommended for crossovers and other "soft-roaders." A great side trip while exploring the Borrego mesa, this is a fun diversion off the beaten path with camping opportunities. Watch for the many old road offshoots, as these are in disrepair and are no longer allowed by the forestry service.
