The Anza-Borrego Wind Caves Trail is in the eastern portion of Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, south of the outpost of Ocotillo Wells.
The caves that are more like holes or alcoves curved out from the sandstone by the wind, looking like giant chunks of Swiss-cheese rock.
The 1.5 mile out and back hiking trail start at the main Fish Creek dry wash, this trailhead is located about 4 miles away from the end of the road in the dry wash, so you better have AWD/4WD car to get here.
I do not recommend coming all the way just to visit this location but this can be a fun stop on your day drive, combining short hike and a place to visit.
The Wind Caves Trailhead is about 30 miles away from Borrego Springs.
From Borrego Springs drive south on Borrego Springs Rd toward Diamond Bar Rd
For about 11.5 mile, turn left onto CA-78 E. Drive for another 6.6 mile up to Ocotillo Wells and here turn right onto Split Mountain Rd.
Drive for 8.1 mile until you will reach the large Fish Creek dry wash.
From this point you will leave the road and get into the dry wash. You need a 4WD vehicle for this last 4-mile portion of the drive.
