Nice hike up canyon to a small waterfall in the desert.

This 5.1 mile hike begins near the visitor center of Anza Borrego Desert State Park and gains 974 feet of elevation while climbing up a canyon to a small waterfall. It is an interesting hike as you can see the plant life change as you get closer to the waterfall. There are parts where the trail get hard to follow. Just keep hiking up towards the sound of the waterfall.
