Fonts Point is one of the most popular viewpoints in the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park. It’s located at the end of a 4 miles dirt road off State Route 22. The dirt drive features beautiful wildflowers and sandy river bed crossings. It’s recommended that only 4-wheel drive vehicles try to reach the parking lot at Fonts Point, but I have seen people in sedans make the trip.
A visit to Fonts Point is a great adventure for any van or RV lnomad who wants to explore the beauty of the Anza Borrego State Park. The views are some of the best views in all of Southern California. The way the distinct ridgelines bend out in front of you from this high vantage point and the array of sandstone foundations is awe-inspiring. This view is something that everyone should see at least once.
While there, hike up the hill to get the best panoramic views of the Anza-Borrego State Park. From the hill, you can see the Borrego Badlands, Vallecito Mountains, the Borrego Valley, Borrego Springs’ oasis, the Peninsular Range, Borrego Buttes, and the Pinyon Mountains. All these locations make for a dramatic view that will inspire.
Fonts Point makes a good destination for any nomad looking for an adventurous day trip. Just take caution when driving down the sand/dirt road, and don’t proceed if there’s rain. Not recommended for RV’s.
From Borrego Springs, take highway S22 east for approximately 11 miles. There will be a sign near mile marker 29. Turn off on the sand road and drive 4 miles to the parking lot.
From the Salton Sea, take S22 west approximately 17 miles. Once you see the sight, turn off on the sand road and drive 4 miles to the parking lot.
