Anza-Borrego Desert: Culp Valley Springs

Rating *****
length 2.1 mile (loop) - 1 hour, 30 minutes (loop). Easy, some scrambling.
Elevation 3100 - 3400
Access All cars from Culp valley. (Signed Old Culp Valley dirt road).

Culp valley is a great place to hike.
The hike goes along a couple springs.
One of the best places to see wild flowers. Don't be afraid to explore some rocky/boulder terrain, that's where most flowers like to be.

A lot of springs contain water most of the year.
We counted 8 springs and one "La Ciega, The Swamp" along the route, but there must be more of them.

An interesting side tour is following a drainage up to spring 7. A bit of a bush walk, but very interesting in the flower time (March/April).
How to get here:
"Park 2" Is closest to the asphalt, "Park" is a bit further along the dirt road, keeping right.
The dirt road up to that point is normally OK for most cars.
