This is a challenging one way trail to Rabbit Peak in Anza-Borrego Desert State Park.
This trail goes by Villager Peak en route to the summit of Rabbit Peak from County Highway S22 (Borrego Salton Seaway). The trail is moderately trafficked, used by both dayhikers and backpackers alike. The trail gains 7,600 feet over the one way distance of approximately 10.5 miles. The trail begins on the desert floor and then follows the broad ridgeline to Rabbit Peak from the south, which steadily rises up until Villager Peak, at which point, the ridge begins to roll, going up and down to Rabbit Peak. Because the hike is along a ridge (very broad), views are commanding and spectacular for nearly the entire hike. Because of the amount of elevation gained on this trail, hikers will have the pleasure of experiencing a wide variety of flora along the way.
The trailhead is just off of the County Highway S22 on the north side of the road, approximately 13 miles east of Borrego Springs, CA. There is parking on both the north and south sides of the road.
