Split Mountain Wind Caves Trail

Anza-Borrego Desert State Park is home to a number of areas with wind caves, and perhaps the most spectacular of them all can be found along a short hike in the Split Mountain region.  Start your adventure by heading south along Split Mountain road.  Turn west on Fish Creek wash and drive the 4WD road just over 4 miles back to the Wind Caves trail head.  If you are driving a 2WD vehicle be aware of clearance issues and areas with loose sand.  The main path is visible from the trail head and  leads up approximately 1/2 mile before offering some spur options, one of which will treat you to an amazing view of the Carrizo Badlands.  Although the main trail is just over a mile round trip, give yourself extra time to explore the various side trails and wiggle your way through the caves.  Better yet, pack a tent and give Fish Creek the attention it deserves with a multi day trip!  Read more about the Wind Caves HERE and if you are looking to download trail maps visit TRAIL MAP.
