Anza-Borrego Desert: Culp Valley Short Loop

Rating *****
Length 4.5 mile (return) - 2 Hour, 30 Minutes (return trip). Easy/Moderate.
Elevation 3000 - 3800 feet
Access All Cars see below

This is one of the best places to find wildflowers.
This is a GPS only hike, we hike in the wash or on the ridges, wherever the sand is and the boulders are not.
There is always a way to avoid the numerous boulders.
The hike is relatively easy, if you can find the right route.

Because of the fire in 2012 the plants are exceptionally big and the scenery changed, but everything is growing back strong.
The upside of the fire; easier to hike, not many obstacles.

How to get here:
All cars. On the Montesuma, close to mile: 10.5 Just after the road turns into a 3 lane road, in the bend. Take the dirt road left (West) signed "(old) Culp Valley".
Park as soon as you find a spot to park.
