Collins Valley Anza Borrego Overnight

The road to Collins Valley washed out during the hurricane and is still closed to vehicles so this is a great opportunity to do an easy trip. There should still be plenty of flowers. I drove to the closed gate in October and a Subaru could easily make it, not sure about a regular vehicle.
Location: End of open road

Right now weather looks great. If it gets too hot I will cancel the trip.

Friday night: I’m going to camp out close to closed gate.

Hike to Sheep Canyon Primitive campground 4mi 600ft Track
There was water in the lower part of Sheep Canyon in October. I am confident there is still water there. There has also been water in Indian Canyon every time I’ve been there.
In the afternoon explore Sheep Canyon (optional). See photos of Jerry Schad’s trip description.

Maybe check out Cougar Canyon. Hike out.
