Anza Borrego


Anza-Borrego Desert State Park is the largest state park in California. Five hundred miles of dirt roads, 12 wilderness areas and many miles of hiking trails provide visitors with an unparalleled opportunity to experience the wonders of the California Desert. The park is named for Spanish explorer Juan Bautista de Anza and the Spanish word for bighorn sheep, borrego. The park features washes, wildflowers, palm groves, cacti and sweeping vistas.


Trail Runs:

Easy (Stock/2WD, 1 Locker recommended): sightseeing around Font's Point, Calcite Mine, Coyote Canyon, 17 Palms, Fish Creek Wash

Moderate (32" tires, 1 Locker recommended): Canyon Sin Nombre, Arroyo Tapiado, Arroyo Seco Del Diablo (and Diablo Drop Off), Sandstone Canyon, Fish Creek Wash.

Hard (4WD, Mild Lift, Sliders, 33s, 1 Locker): Heart Attack Hill, The Squeeze, Fish Creek Wash. *Body damage is a possibility*

Campsite: Fish Creek Camp


To the campsite-

Take CA-78 to Ocotillo (Ocotillo Airport), turn south on Split Mountain Road
Go about 8 miles south on Split Mountain Road.
Fish Creek Wash will turn off the pavement to the right (there's a sign).
Once you're on Fish Creek Wash, the camp site is 1.2 miles down on the left (there's a sign and a path).

The camp site has a bathroom(VERY clean), fire rings and can easily accomodate our entire group. There is no trash collection at the campsite. All trash and coals must be carried out.

Winter nights can quickly drop to below freezing temps and we could see daytime temps in the mid 80's. Come prepared!

Meet Time: 9:00am

A short driver's meeting will be held before separating into trail groups.

This is typically one of the best and most family friendly runs of the year! Come on out!

In. I have seen a picture of an old tundra making it through the squeeze with some slight paint scrapes, but nothing larger than that.

I don't know if The Squeeze is LC friendly. I've never heard of one going through. Time to research!

I know some FJ guys who make it through. Late model FJs are 75 inches wide. Landcruiser is 76 stock, but I don't have the stock flares (Do you even flare, bro?). We'll see! Gonna be tight! Toight like a toiger!

Mike, you bringing the '90 with you? I'm not sure how well your 2nd gen long travel will do through the squeeze. We've never had an incident. And everybody should know how serious we take spotting. We're going to have a great time!

I got a guy at the shop that just picked up a stock 2012 TX. We were going to head out to Anza soon but if there is intrest in the easy/mild run I will tell him to wait and come out then.
