Anza-Borrego Desert: Unnamed Wash

Rating *****
length 10.7 mile (round trip) - 4 hour. 30 minutes (round trip). Easy.
Elevation 10 - 680 feet
Access High clearance 4x4 only, See below.

This hike explores an Unnamed Wash.
The hike is mostly on sand with some rocky stretches.

How to get here:
From the Salton City Arco gas station head North on highway 86.
Take the exit "Vista Del Mar" "Coombs", not a well maintained road, immediately turn left and now enter the wash heading west underneath (bridge) the highway.
Past the 2 highway bridges turn 45 degrees out of the Grave Wash and follow the pole line road heading North/West.

At point 'Xing' (unsigned) you might go up the wash by car or park at point 'Park'.

Do not try this without a 4x4, be prepared for crossing many drainages and washes.
The 'road' is along a pole line so we expect some form of maintenance on the 'road'.
This route and drive crosses Indian land.
