Man has traveled this road for thousands of years, making it an ancient offroad trail in Anza-Borrego Desert State Park. Vallecito Creek Road was part of the Southern Overland Trail. Today it provides an immersive offroad experience of the lower desert along the southern edge of the Carizzo Badlands. Seasonally the area can be Hades or can be Heaven. The heavenly part is that the air is filled with aromatic Desert Sand Verbena and Desert Gold paired with the dry, easy-to-breathe desert air. Wherever you look, the foreground is filled with a chaotic yet sensible composite of vibrant colors against a backdrop of dystopian badlands, all of which are everlastingly watched over by the imposing Vallecito Mountains. The road is a destination and connects to several other routes, making it the perfect pairing for your Anza-Borrego overland trip!
