A short, easy, scenic 1.6 mile loop hike through a desert nature trail to a historic watering hole in Anza Borrego Desert State Park. Easily accessible from Highway 78, this is a quick little hike you can hit on your way in or out of the park.

When I visited the "Well" in a so far dry winter (less than 1" precipitation), I was quite amazed by the intensity of greenery here. There is year round water here, which is visible in the density of Honey Mesquite and Catclaw.

Nice cactus along the way, but the "well" was a little disappointing.
