Got it back in the spring with Rabbit on an overnight trip. Tough hike with great views. Don't get stucca by yucca.

This was a strenuous hike with a 5000' elevation gain. Out of the Anza Borrego State Park, the accent offers tremendous views of the Salton Sea and both Borrego Springs Valley and Coachella Valley at the top . Advice, don't do this in summer! Fall,Winter,Spring. You basically walk along a ridge that can get tricky at points to find the trail, but in these areas other hikers are kind enough to leave small cairns for your assistance.

Do this hike in the spring or fall to avoid the desert heat but before daylight savings...you will need all the daylight you can get unless you want to headlamp it. Pretty simple out and back as far as route finding. Going up I had the sun on my right side. Going down, yep, I had the sun on my right side. Makes for a great tan on that side if you need it. No shade to be found. And no one else to be found. Except for the herd of big horn I ran into. Make this a little longer hike and just a few more miles will take you to Rabbit Peak. Great desert hike!!
