Slot Canyon
#2 of 20 Nature & Parks in Borrego Springs
Slot Canyon is one of my favorite places in Anza Borrego Desert State Park, especially because you can easily get to the trailhead without 4-wheel drive or high clearance.
An amazing and unusual part of the Anza Desert... just makes you wonder... how did this get here.. but really fun to climb around in and simply enjoy this somewhat freak of nature.

Hellhole Canyon Trail
#5 of 20 Nature & Parks in Borrego Springs
You can park for free at the Trailhead off of Montezuma Valley Rd [county highway S-22]; this parking area holds 30 cars and is located about 1 mile south of the ABDSP Visitor Center.
And park at the trailhead which is right at the bottom of Montezuma grade.
Coyote Canyon
#6 of 20 Nature & Parks in Borrego Springs
The trail leaves from Borrego Springs to the north, It passes the graded road to Vern Whitaker Horse Camp before leaving the citrus groves behind and entering Anza-Borrego Desert State Park up a formed, sandy trail.
We saw other people parking near the beginning of the road and hiking through the park, which is another option, but with the amount of cars and at the speeds some of them were driving, not an option for me.
