Anza-Borrego Desert State Park is the largest state park in California, with over 620,000 acres. The Park features stunning washes, palm groves, cacti and dramatic vistas. Over five hundred miles of dirt roads, free backcountry camping, and a thousand square miles of open hiking provide visitors with an unparalleled opportunity to experience the wonders of the California desert.

Join us for an introduction to Anza-Borrego Desert State Park. Anza-Borrego Foundation's Education & Outreach Coordinator will give you the inside scoop on the Park and it's cooperating association, Anza-Borrego Foundation. We will touch on the basics of desert hiking, biking, camping, and overall adventuring with a focus on the benefits of off-trail travel in this wonderful place. From what there is to experience to all the different ways to experience it, Anza-Borrego Desert State Park is a great resource for recreationists in Southern California.
