Anza-Borrego Desert: Sentenac Cienega

Rating *****
Length 4.2 mile (round trip) - 2 hour 50 minutes, Easy (bush-walk).
Elevation 2060-2270 feet
Access All cars

The Sentenac Cienega is a 'swamp' where the San Felipe (seasonal) creek meets the Sentenac canyon.
Start at the small PCT parking, follow the unmarked trail underneath the bridge.
Continue along the sandy San Felipe wash.

Follow the creek-bed, wildlife trails and the route of least resistance.
Parts are unavoidable bush-walks, often dry but will dry after rain.
There are animal tracks everywhere, so this must be a frequently visited place.

Warning
This is a seasonal swamp and may be dangerous when wet. Don't head in after rain and when rain is predicted
Mountain lions visit this area, so be alert.

How to get here:

Park at a small parking north/east of scissors crossing.
