Anza-Borrego Desert: Indian Canyon South East Fork

Rating *****
length 5.5 Mile - 3 hour 30 minutes (Round trip), Easy/Moderate.
Elevation 1600 - 2680 feet
Access High clearance 4x4.

A hike up a fork of Indian canyon.
Starting at the parking follow the trail for a short while, next head south/east to pick up the south fork wash.

There are few obstacles on this hike, except the increasing number of rocks and small boulders.
It's possible to go a little bit further into the forks until it gets too steep.

How to get there:

Enter coyote canyon, drive to first, second and third crossing.
This part is generally good for any high clearance car.
After third crossing the road goes uphill on a stretch called boulder alley.
Road conditions on this stretch vary from good to very bad.
Don't even think about going up boulder alley, without knowing the state of the road. Unless driving a serious off road vehicle.

Once past boulder alley the road is generally pretty good and if you make it past boulder alley this should be a breeze.
Keep left on every crossing, following Sheep / Cougar canyon.
Park at the Cougar canyon parking.
