Ascent Trip Report

I've been wanting to grab False Sombrero from McCain Valley ever since I hiked Sombrero and enjoyed the terrain.

We started from Cottonwood Campground. The trip starts briefly on a hiking trail which then becomes a dirt road, but the route is primarily open country. There was significant brush for about the first half of the hike, but once we got to the final ridgeline for False Sombrero, the vegetation was less dense, and we were able to hike quickly. The view from along the ridgeline down into Anza Borrego is a great part of the hike.

The peak is much lower in elevation from the start.
