Culp Valley offers incredible views of Borrego Springs and out even to the Salton Sea. The vastness of the desert below brings a feeling of humbled vulnerability. I will keep coming back to this beautiful spot for this view! Trails can be steep at times. As always, pack lots of water, wear good shoes, and bring moleskin and foot powder in case of blistering.

More of a walk then a hike . This trial is very well maintained easy and I believe wheelchair accessible all the way to the overlook . Nice views of Borrego Springs and beyond . There are a lot more trials here in all directions . We have hiked here many times and still haven't hit all the trials that can be reached from this one area
