Anza-Borrego Desert: Clark dry lake loop

Rating *****
length 9.8 mile - 4 hour, 50 minutes (Loop). Easy.
Elevation 560 - 680 feet
Access All cars, See below.

A loop around Clark dry lake and Little Clark dry lake.
An area well suited for cross country hiking, the hike can be shorted to any length.
The lake has an abandoned dirt runway, remains of radio telescopes, spend ammunition from the time it was a military practice area.
After a sufficient amount of rain, the sand dunes surrounding the lake are a place to find wild flowers. Generally the Clark dry lake area is drier than Coyote canyon.

After rain the lake may not longer be completely dry, but it takes many inches of rainfall to fill up the lake. Most of the time it turns into a mudflat.

How to get here:

Exit on Rockhouse Tr and follow the dirt road up to point "Exit" and park at point "Park"
