Overview

Anza-Borrego State Park's northern territory has this simple and floral-rich wash. Ella Wash, named after Ella Calvert, the wife of the first Anza-Borrego supervisor, is the perfect new to the off-roading scene trail. Along the route, you will get a taste of the northern territory of Anza Borrego State Park, with the Santa Rosa Mountains hovering in the background. At the same time, the foreground has stunning plant-rich scenery. It was said that Ella spent a lot of time in this area of the park as this was her favorite area due to the wide range of fauna that grows in this area, which doesn't grow in any other part of the park. Many say this is one of their favorite drives in the park due to the wide range of colors you see along the route.
