Event Description

PLEASE NOTE THE DATE OF THIS HIKE HAS BEEN CHANGED TO SATURDAY, JANUARY 15.

This is a spectacular desert hike in the Coyote Mountains Wilderness near Ocotillo.  The area is just outside of Anza Borrego State Park.  These mountains are full of amazing scenery, slot canyons, ancient fossils, Indian petroglyphs and wind caves.  We will hike about 6 to 8 miles and gain about 1000 ft in elevation, some of it will be cross country desert hiking and will involve rock scrambling.  This is a fun hike for the adventurous.  See Domelands at the webpage below:
