Trail Information

Highlights

Perhaps one of the most unique and talked about features of Anza Borrego isn't the natural beauty but rather the man-made art. In the low desert, a small city named Borrego Springs features some of the most amazing sculptures in North America. Comprised of steel, these sculptures of modern animals, prehistoric dinosaurs, and mythical creatures lace the desert like hidden gems to be found. These sculptures are an amazing mix of craftsmanship, design, and location. The desert background almost makes them look like they are walking next to you. Thus when in the area, explore the desert and let us know what you find. And by all means, please tell us which one is your favorite. Is it the Jeep, Sea Serpent, Phoenix, T-Rex, or something different? There are over a 130 different sculptures in the desert. We can't wait to hear from you soon and see your photos.

Pretty much any car can do this, and kids love it! Do you even overland if you don't instagram pictures of your rig with the sculptures?

Awesome drive. Definitely not an off road trail but it’s a great place to explore and take a break from the trails. Highly recommend if you need to stop in Berrego Springs.

More of a road than a trail. Super super easy to get to and sculptures are right off the road. Our fav was the serpent. Really cool to see. New Years weekend was busy.

Super easy. Everything is easy to get to. You can drive up to the sculptures and they are quite elaborate. They are also close to the town so you can gas up and get ice cream if needed.
