Jacumba Tower

Jacumba Tower

Desert View Tower, along border-straddling Interstate 8, between San Diego and El Centro, Desert View Tower has been an enduring attraction. Bert Vaughn, who owned the town of Jacumba, built the stone lookout between 1922-28.The main attraction is the view of the valley below and the Boulder Park, a jumble of rocks weathered by wind into caves and craggy walkways surrounding the tower. Depression-era carvings strung along the path are a bonus: animals, faces, and folk creatures inspired by the natural shapes in the rocks. The carvings and tower are registered as an official California Historical Landmark #939. There is a small museum and store, but be sure to verify their hours before heading there.
