Hike Sheep Canyon

3 Miles Round Trip - 1000 ft gain - Out-and-Back Trail

Sheep Canyon Campground - Search Nearby - Added by Scott Sichler

A palm canyon oasis in the desert.

Sheep Canyon is probably the most remote palm canyon in Anza-Borrego Desert State Park in California. While Palm Canyon is easily accessed from the State Park campground, Sheep Canyon is on a dirt road that requires stream crossings and potentially a high-clearance 4WD vehicle. 

The canyon is named for the bighorn sheep you might see if you are lucky. A primitive campground is nearby if you want to stay the night. There is no real trail into the canyon so you have to scramble up and around boulders to see this oasis.
