A spectacular view of upper Borrego Valley—with its patchwork of tamarisk windbreaks, fields, citrus orchards, and palm nurseries—is the highlight of this hike. You begin at Pegleg Monument, a marker that commemorates prospector and spinner of tall tales, Pegleg Smith, and his famous lost gold. Adding stones to the big rock pile here, it is said, brings luck to the treasure hunter.
