Anza Borrego via Sidecar

Hey everyone. I'm looking to head out to Anza Borrego the last week of March. I have never been there before and looking to tow my sidecar out and camp for 2 nights. It's probably going to be me and my wife and maybe my dog. I know you can pull off anywhere and set up camp. Is it advise able to tow the sidecar out there? I plan to set up camp and explore with the sidecar. I'll be towing my sidecar on a trailer with my Subaru Forester if that makes any difference. Thanks!

Lots of sand if the rig is two wheel drive should be ok, if not high probability of getting stuck depending on where you ride there.

I like Borrego alot. Expect nothing like Palm Springs/Desert. It's very, very slow. Nothing is developed commercially in the way of motels, and food. Everything is small mom & pop.

First go to the AB visitor center at the west end of town. Lots of good info in there.

If you decide not to camp, there are many rooming options. A few weeks ago, Mrs. Samthg and I stopped in to look at http://www.borregospringsmotel.com/ . It's super clean and redone recently, but no TV/Internet. I know! Just take a hot spot or something. It's only about $75/nite.

Road wise, there is plenty to choose from. I quick trip over to Salvation Mountain is always worth the time. S3 Yaqui Pass road is nice. You may like a trip west on 22, to S2, to 79 thru Julian, and back down 78. The little casino of Santa Ysabel sits on a nice bluff that looks north across Lake Henshaw toward Mt. Palomar, that is very scenic.

You gotta go search out all the sculptures, they are done darn well and have amazing character. http://www.ricardoabreceda.com/

Temps in the mid 80's. Should be a fantastic time for the two of you, enjoy!

Font's Pt., you can't get there on your rig, but I'll post it anyway


Somewhere on the 'sculpture drive'
