Hemet to Borrego Springs + ADD NEW ROUTE
- Trip Toolbox
Start at Hemet, take Sage Road to 79 and then go down through Scissors Crossing and come into Borrego Springs from the south. Leave Borrego Springs and go up Montezuma Grade to Ranchita and come out through Warner Springs and Aguanga to take R3 back to Hemet off of the 79.
South of Hemet the scenery goes from chapparal covered slopes to mixed oaks and pines as the elevation climbs up and over the pass to Warner Springs Ranch. Long ranch vistas from this point forward, until the terrain goes to sere desert vistas as one drops down into the Anza Borrego Desert. The return route retraces these scenes.
Good roads, although the Sage R3 route can have some sand across the pavement after winter storms. Twisties begin south of Hemet and there is only one long straight-away as you ride down to Scissors Crossing. Montezuma Grade is rife with twisties, and all roads are good. Lunch in Borrego Springs.
Borrego Springs has a few good places to eat, and the flowers in April are usually good in the Anza Borrego Desert region.
Couple of cattle guards on the road down to Scissors Crossing--through Native American lands. Watch for the occasional cow!
