Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Smack-dab in the middle of the most desolate part of the Borrego Badlands stands a remarkable triad of palm oases. The best known of these, Seventeen Palms, is a popular destination for park visitors. The other two lie just a short distance away. They are accessible in a roundabout way via four-wheel-drive trails, or overland on foot as described here.
