Anza-Borrego Desert State Park
California’s largest state park protects the arid mountain wilderness of the Anza-Borrego Desert.
Made up of 12 wilderness areas, the park is home to bighorn sheep, wildflowers, palms, cacti, eagles, roadrunners, and iguanas.
It’s a remote-feeling wilderness area, ideal for desert hiking and drives. Wildflower season (February to April) is a stellar time to visit, with flowering cacti in every color of the rainbow.
