Hellhole Palms is a palm grove[edit]

Hellhole Palms is a palm grove located Hellhole Canyon, which is in an uninhabited part of Anza Borrego Desert State Park. The GPS coordinates that were on the sidebar of this page were on a part of highway S-22 that goes through a completely uninhabited part of the park. I don't think people have ever lived here (apart from maybe Native Americans a hundred or more years ago), so I am removing the page from "Municipalities and communities of San Diego County, California". I'm also not entirely sure if the Hellhole Palms merit their own wikipedia page, especially if Hellhole Canyon doesn't have one. Borrego Palm Canyon is a much more famous canyon and it doesn't seem to have its own page either. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Hoek2000 (talkcontribs) 09:44, 14 November 2011 (UTC)

"Municipalities and communities"???[edit]

Let me reiterate... there are no structures or people living anywhere near Hellhole Palms. The closest people live within the city limits of Borrego Springs. So I'm not sure how anyone would consider it a "community". I'm not going to take it out of the "Municipalities..." category again because I don't know wikipedia policies about this, but I don't think it should be included, or necessarily even have its own page.

Hellhole Palms? or "Hidden" Palms?[edit]

I'm a local 'born-raised' San Diego resident from Point Loma. From a kid growing up my folks kept a trailer permanent status at Desert Sands Resort in Borrego Springs. Back in those days we could all ride our off-road Honda trail bikes still all over out there - and Jeeps, buggies, what have you. The good days! :) In any case we journied all about down there to many treasured locations. And if I recall, what is now named Hellhole Palms was called Hidden Palms then, which was aprox from 1966 to 1976. (?) And no, of course, it was NEVER a community so don't understand why it's being called one. And it was only accessable on foot, quite rocky too. Aside the palm trees, it's quite uninviting looking - even the palm trees as I recall looked harsh, unattractive. No one lives there at all, I can't remember anyone even camping there - especially no motor campers. But sleeping outside, I sure wouldn't, but maybe some hikers do. Hikers seemed to like the hike there. I wouldn't want to camp-sleep outside overnight, nono. Snakes and whatever thrive in there. But I just know it was called Hidden Palms in those years, unless someone changed the name since the mid 70's. There's some other wonders around Borrego we ventured to you. The Badlands. Font's Point. Hidden Springs is cool, a trek accessible best on motorbike but can be made by Jeep - pref 4x4 of course. If you blink you'd miss it unless it's marked today, wasn't back then. It's just a little small hole on side of mountain bottom but fresh water springs up/down in it from underneath. Bees hang all around it but if you just be nice and easy and go through them they don't bother or sting. NEVER wave-swatt them away! Simply kinda cup your hands and scoop some water to drink, it's delicious. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Bruce92106 (talkcontribs) 20:40, 30 April 2017 (UTC)
