Borrego Sun - Since 1949

ABF Hikes and Hops


Last updated 12/4/2017 at 9:20am

The Anza-Borrego Foundation will host the Hikes and Hops event Dec. 10, with a loop in the Mountain Palm Springs area, visiting four different palm groves along the way.

The hike will begin at 9:00 a.m. at the Mountain Palm Springs parking area. From there, participants will decide the exact route as a group. There also may be a side trip to see the Elephant Trees in Torote Bowl. The hike is expected to last until 2:00 p.m.

Participants should wear sturdy shoes, bring hiking poles if needed, sun protection (hat, sunscreen, long sleeve, etc;) water, snacks, a lunch, and anything else to be comfortable for a full day in the desert in winter. All should be prepared to be outside and under the sun with no shade for the entire hike.

Cost is $20 for the general public or $15 for ABF members.
