Anza-Borrego Desert: Rockhouse Canyon South loop
||6.4 mile (round trip) - 3 hour, 30 minutes (round trip). Moderate (steep).
||890 - 2025 feet
||Most cars (soft sand 4x4 high clearance may be needed), See below.
A scenic hike up Rockhouse canyon, following two south forks.
The first part is easy in a sandy wash, entering the second south fork, things get more interesting as the wash narrows.
More boulders and eventually it's easier out of the wash, heading for a saddle.
Om the other side it's slightly going down, but steeper farther on, expect rocks, boulders and scrubs.
How to get here:
Take the signed exit Carrizo wash, close to mile 48.5. Drive the wash road for about 2.8 mile, just beyond the unmarked Rockhouse canyon.
Generally the wash road is good, with a low amount of small rocks, but once in a while filled with soft sand.
