Jacumba Hikers: Palm Groves & Torote Bowl
Beginning at Mountain Palm Springs in Anza Borrego, this 5-mile hike will explore several of the area’s desert palm groves. Comprised of California fan palms, the only native palm trees in the western U.S., these groves are past homes to the Kumeyaay. En route, we will hike up a steep, rocky trail to Torote Bowl to get an up-close view of the small-leaf elephant tree and dramatic views of the Carrizo Badlands.
