Overview

This short but interesting trail is what remains of the old route through Culp Valley on the mountainous western edge of Anza-Borrego Desert State Park. Culp Valley was home to a fairly large Cahuilla village, and a few Cahuilla dwellings remained into the 1900's. It also became home to a handful of homesteader families who ran cattle in the valley. Remnants of one of these homesites, settled by the Paroli family, can still be seen.
