Time to explore Rockhouse Trail in more depth. Rockhouse Trail is a dirt/sand/rock road off S22 to the north as you head into Borrego Springs.
It leads past Clark Dry Lake and on up to Rockhouse Canyon which is on the other side of Coyote Canyon.
It is a little less than 7 miles one way before it dead ends. A high clearance vehicle is recommended. The initial part of the road is paved, for a very short distance, and then turns into hard packed sand, and then turns into some not so hard packed sand and rocks.
After a short distance we were into 4WD and loving every minute of it.
As you continue on Rockhouse you are going up in elevation. Eventually we got to a nice high point with fantastic views AND we found a shaded spot to park the car, get out and hike around, and enjoy a fabulous picnic lunch. We discovered some great boondocking spots around there. An Earthroamer is calling our name!!
Then, before we know it, it is time to head back. We spent most of the day on this terrific drive when you count all the time for exploration also! Loved it!
