Hiking in Anza Borrego was amazing specially on new years eve. Did goat trail hike which was very interesting saw so much quartz rocks beautiful the views were amazing and breathtaking. But you really need to be prepared for a hike like this you must have obviously water first aid kit just in case for those falls scrapes. You gotta wear the right hiking shoes/boots and the right clothing hats or something that will give you shade for the most part..
