Yaqui Pass

A paved road to the summit of Yaqui Pass in California

Yaqui Pass is a mountain pass at an elevation of 526m (1.725ft) above the sea level, located in San Diego County, California, in USA.

Located within the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, the road to the summit is totally paved. It’s called Yaqui Pass Road (County Highway S3). The drive is pretty steep (4-10% grade), and visibility between cars and rides can be poor, with many twists and turns against the canyon walls.
