Travelling the US from coast to coast, we found Borrego Springs more or less by accident, coming out of the Netherlands, it's not the first hiking spot that comes to mind.
But in the "cold" season it actually is, the park is huge and if you like cross country hiking this is one of the best places to go.
Don't expect many trails, there are only a couple of them, but going cross country, is fairly easy once you get used to the terrain.
Now years later we live in Borrego Springs, in winter and spring and we are still finding new places to hike.
The park is ideal to go cross country and you find something new every time.
When the time is right, the wildflowers make things a lot more colorful. (December-May). But when you look carefully, you find flowers all year long.
Our goal, to hike every single canyon/wash and peak in Anza Borrego and we are going strong.
