County Highway S22
November 15, 2002 - Philip J. Erdelsky, email@example.com
County Highway S22 begins at a junction with County Highway S2 and runs eastward as Montezuma Valley Road through the rural community of Ranchita. It enters Anza-Borrego State Park and then descends for approximately 12 miles to the desert community of Borrego Springs, offering magnificent views of the Borrego Valley as it winds steeply down Montezuma Grade.
As it enters Borrego Springs, County Highway S22 turns right onto Palm Canyon Drive.
In the middle of Borrego Springs, County Highway S22 passes through the only large traffic circle in San Diego County. It continues east, changing its name to the Borrego-Salton Seaway, through the desert and comes to an end at a junction with California Highway 86 in Salton City, a community on the banks of the Salton Sea.
