Overview

Hidden in the low deserts of Southern California is an area that has been forgotten in time. Just outside Ocotillo, Anza-Borrego State Park has a rich mining history, where travelers once came to mine the area for minerals in the 1930s. The Dolomite Mine Road was part of this area when men of the past were hoping for riches. Today, the mine has been forgotten, but the views are amazing. Off in the distance, you can see the scenic Carrizo Badlands glowing through the haze of the Salton Basin. So whether you are starting your overland adventure or finishing it, make this little blip of history a stop to experience the stunning views and remaining history of what once was.
