Ocotillo Patch is a scenic pull off along Pinto Basin Road located between two mountain ranges in an alluvial fan, a place where sediments spread out from a narrow area, often carried by water. This area gets more moisture from runoff to support more plants, including the high number of ocotillo that are located here. This pull off includes an interpretive display as well as sweeping panoromic views of the area.
