Just outside the sleepy desert town of Borrego Springs, Rockhouse Canyon Road is another fun out-and-back trail to add to your Anza-Borrego Desert State Park list, especially in the springtime. This backcountry trail runs directly along a sprawling dry lake bed in a barren valley between two mountain ranges creating interesting photo opportunities. Climbing out the back of the lake bed, the trail travels a sandy wash filled with tall Ocotillo. Although you won't find much camping on this trail, check out this scenic route through the desert if you are sightseeing in the area.
