ABDSP South Tour

Level 1+ to 2                 (Rating System)

This is a popular run. It covers a good section of the southern part of Anza-Borrego Desert State Park. It includes Canyon Sin Nombre, Arroyo Seco del Diablo, Diablo Drop-off, Sandstone Canyon, Arroyo Tapiado, the Mud Caves, and Vallecito Wash.

Sandstone Canyon is also described here. Canyon Sin Nombre is also described here.

Sometimes people swing by Dos Cabezas and Piepkorn Slot too. Two tracks are included in the GPX file. One with Dos Cabezas and one without.

A slide has caused a dam and mud bog on Arroyo Seco del Diablo at about N32.90998° W116.16166°. I hear it is worse after the recent rains (fall 2019). One might have to go around via Arroyo Tapiado.
