Highlight: Canyon Sin Nombre
This fun easy route takes you through a Elsinore fault in the Anza Borrego Desert. Due to the exciting natural formations, many call this trail "The Geologist Tour" or "The Journey Through Time" due to the nature of the different rocks and formations along the route from the southwestward tilt of the desert sediments. Some of these ancient rocks are as old as 500-million years. While on the route expect amazing views of natural wonders and even more amazing rock structures.
