Panorama Overlook/Extended Overlook Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"A short but steep climb via a switchback trail south up San Ysidro Mountain to a scenic overlook of Borrego Valley, continuing to a higher and even more expansive viewpoint. These make for a wonderful extended overlook—a good place to sit and soak up the majestic desert scenery of canyons, alluvial fans, mountains, valleys, and jagged, exposed ridges. The palm groves of Borrego Palm Canyon are hidden from view, but take time here to scan the slopes for desert bighorn sheep. As with most mountainous use trails, this one is easier to find going down than up."
