Caving and Hiking

Anza Borrego Canyons and Caves

Join us on this popular overnight trip. By day we will explore mud caves, palm oases, wildflowers, vistas and Native American Pictographs. By night, we indulge in delicious food from a Dutch oven, soak in the hot springs, and take in the amazing star display far from the contamination of city lights. We will spend Saturday exploring the corners of Arroyo Tapiado Caves with our headlamps. Sunday will find us picking our way through the desert canyons in search of one of the many oases or desert vistas. No Anza-Borrego trip is complete without a stop for famous Julian pie on the way home. This trip has a waiting list every time, so sign up early.
