On a recent visit to Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, we toured Grapevine Canyon in our 4WD Jeep.  These photos were taken on April 6th, 2016.  Grapevine Canyon is a good location to view the wildflowers in bloom, but it requires a 4WD vehicle.

The brilliant blooms of the Beavertail cactus were easy to spot along the trail.  The gold-colored blooms of the brittle bush stood out along the roadside.

Grapevine Canyon, is a 4WD trail.   It is a long downhill ride if you start down the Jasper Trail near Ranchita on the west boundry of the Park from at Mile 6.8 on Montezuma Highway (S22). Stay on Grapevine Canyon road to avoid hills and rough riding. You’ll enjoy shady trees and springs, but watch for bike traffic.  You can also enter Grapevine Canyon Jeep Trail from the south side from Highway 78 across Yaqui Flat.
