Document Description
Approximately 560 acres of the Piedras Grandes region in southern Anza-Borrego Desert State Park would be closed to motorized vehicles and overnight camping to protect sensitive cultural resources. The area would still be open for day use hiking, mountain biking, and equestrian activity. The existing jeep road leading into Piedras Grandes, at its junction with the dirt road leading to Dos Cabezas Spring, would be closed to motorized vehicle traffic, and the jeep road converted to a recreational trail. A small parking area would be created at this road intersection. Interpretive signs and/or displays would be placed to educate the public on the significance and sensitivity of the area.
