Consider Vista del Malpais, it's like Font's Point without the crowds. A short uphill drive on an easy road leads to a vantage point overlooking the Borrego Badlands. The Borrego Badlands get their unique topography from being near the trailhead off Short Wash. This trail is suitable for any high-clearance vehicle.
