Summary We drove out to the southern end of Anza-Borrego Desert State Park and visited Dos Cabezas, then drove to the Mortero Palms and spent the night. The next day we hiked up the canyon to the Mortero Palms and continued uphill on a faint trail to the top of Goat Canyon. We slacked off and decided not to hike down the steep canyon after all, and instead walked out on a long ridge above it. From there we were able to see, far below us, the huge wooden Goat Canyon Trestle. We ate lunch, then hiked back out to the car, but vowed to return to visit the trestle up close another day.
