Anza Borrego info needed

#1

Post by OU812 » Tue Nov 17, 2009 11:00 am

Some friends and I would like to explore Anza. The Forest service website doesn't have very good maps. I would like to stick to easy/moderate stuff. I was looking at Canyon Sin Nombre and Split Mountain. I am not sure how close these two are to each other. But I would like to put together a run to see the sights. If anyone has links to maps or historical sites please post them up. I have a few weeks to plan. We are talking about going out Sunday Dec. 6. If anyone one wants to join us, feel free.

I think I have been to this area once. I can send you some GPS tracks if you are interested. Send me your email via PM.

Canyon Sin Nombre and Split Mountain are not really close, but there are some great trails that start at one and end at the other.

I would recommend the book Guide To Southern California Backroads & 4-Wheel Drive Trails by Charles A. Wells. Its a very popular guidebook for the backcountry and covers quite a few trails in Anza-Borrego.

Of course, you can't beat having someone who knows the area along with you. If I can make it out on that date I'd be more than happy to show you around. There's quite a few others around here who I'm sure would be happy to do the same.
