Hiked the Sheep Canyon Trail (Anza-Borrego) last March with my son's Boy Scout Troop. It was his first hike after joining the troop and he was looking forward to it.

It took 4-wheel drive vehicles to get to the trailhead. Once there we loaded up and headed up the initial, rocky hillside trail. I was told it was to be about 4+ miles to our destination. It was a fun day of hiking on the very open, sandy trails with our fully loaded packs. A few stops along the way to rest and take care of blisters (glad I brought some moleskin) before getting to where we would setup camp. A shorter hike from there led us to a creek where we were able to filter water to refill our packs before settling in for dinner and a night out under the stars.

Fun time had by all. It was an OK trail, but not high on my list to get back to.
