How to get to Walker Canyon, Lake Elsinore CA

Irrespective of whether you are coming from San Diego or Los Angeles, take the 15 Freeway and exit Lake Street. Turn away from the city — directing oneself to the clear trails off the road.

Look at a routed hike up the mountain — thriving with wellness and beauty.
Alternatively, descend off-the-beaten path… beyond the very first trail … to a canyon much less wandered (pictured).

Walker Canyon in Lake Elsinore Vs. Anza Borrego Springs, California

For these of you who adhere to my adventures on Instagram and Snapchat, you know that I’ve explored the California super bloom in each Lake Elsinore and Anza Borrego Springs.

The “best” place depends on what you are searching for.

Walker Canyon Lake Elsinore has a lot more dense, complete fields. There are a lot more flowers and a lot more hills to discover. These are a bit random — just off the highway in the middle of no exactly where.

Anza Borrego was good for a a picnic simply because there had been so quite a few empty spots to lay down a throw.

(You do not want to place a blanket more than reside flowers… that would destroy the fields!)

Anza Borrego has much less flowers, on the other hand, it has a folk town nearby and full campgrounds.

Anza Borrego also has some good mountains.



Choose fallen flowers, not from stems.

A friendly, public service announcement that it is illegal to choose flowers. Pick from these fallen for your photographs. As they say, take only memories, leave only footprints 🙂
