Just off the Borrego Salton Seaway (County Highway S22) is a road that will take you to Font’s Point in Anza Borrego. There are a few signs that will guide you to the right direction. It should be about a 4 mile off-roading drive to the view point. The drive is pretty easy and open so we decided to let our newly licensed friend, Deedee, take the wheel. Look at all the confidence she has!

We wanted to catch the sunrise but were a bit late… The drive there was gorgeous though!

Another opportunity to ride the roof, even in the freezing cold.

You can catch some great views of some of the canyons along the way.

And finally reaching the dirt “roundabout” where you can park your car, we headed out and up a short hill to Font’s Point.

Take it aaallllll in. Maybe meditate a little on the edge. Get some inspiration for the blog you’re going to write ;P

If you want, you can even walk into the canyon too. We did a little but quickly went back, anticipating our next adventure.


@HikeSnobs Tips:

  • Sunrise would be better if the clouds aren’t in the way…
  • Sunset is considered the best time to go.
