Anza-Borrego Desert: Mexican Bladder Sage Loop

Rating *****
Length 7.3 mile (loop) - 4 Hour, 15 minutes (loop). Moderate (boulders).
Elevation 1000 - 2500 feet
Access Most cars. From Borrego Springs take the second dirt road after the bend (start counting beyond mile 9), at the end of the dirt road, turn right again. Park after about 1.5 mile from the asphalt.

This hike follows a wash South/West, loops in two forks that are lined with Mexican Bladder Sage.

The hike starts cross county until meeting a sandy wash heading South/West.
Two dry falls/boulders block the wash, keep left a point "Fork". Here the wash is filled with small boulders, as the wash levels, the hike gets easier.

Turn North/West up to a drainage and follow the drainage steeply down.
The drainage meets one of the forks and eventually ends at a rather steep fall.
Bypass the fall on the north.
Now head easterly completing the loop.

The loop part looks short, but the going is slow.
