Hero: Tule Wash
small-sr Icon
Tule Wash is famous for its Pumpkin Patch. Located in Ocotillo Wells OHV, this trail runs east to west and is probably one of the highest-traveled routes in the area. The Pumpkin Patch is an area of rocks ranging from just a few inches to several feet around, and as the name says, they look like pumpkins. Created when the Colorado River ran through the area, these rocks are unique and fun to stop at and take photos with. But be warned, even though Tule Wash is an easy trail, the sand can get soft in places, so make sure you air down. Due to the remoteness of this trail, there isn't really any ideal camping. Not saying you couldn't, but it is just a wash. If you are looking for cool places to camp, camp near the north side of Cross Over Trail near the hills. There you find places in the coves for tent camping and open flat ground for RV's.
