Description

Added by Scott Sichler

A remote slot canyon hike in Anza-Borrego Desert State Park.

This slot canyon hike is found deep in the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park in Canyon Sin Nombre. If you have a suitable 4WD vehicle you can drive about 2.2 miles to the start of the slot otherwise you can hike down the sandy unpaved road. The entrance will be on your left and marked by metal posts.

The slot has several rock slides that require some scrambling. When you reach the top area you can climb up the side for great views of this vast area before returning the way you came.

For safety, please avoid the canyon if there is rain in the forecast.
