It always bugs me to see the name showing up different ways on different maps! The state park sign as you enter the flat from Fish Creek says Hapaha. Curious if there's any consensus which is right and which is wrong?

I have always known it as Hapaha...old maps show "carriso" gorge and "borego" spring/valley...where are you seeing it as Hahapa?

The Wilderness Press "Anza-Borrego Desert Region" map (the one that comes in the Lindays' guide book and is also sold by itself in lots of places) shows it as Hahapa. I have two, both 2006 copyrights, most recent is a 2014 3rd printing, and they're both the same. I think I've seen that spelling elsewhere too but don't recall specifically where now.

I think the map in the book is just a mistake, everywhere else in the book it is referenced as Hapaha. People looking at the map probably just propagate the mistaken name.

Ahh... Indeed I see now that the rest of the book uses the correct spelling. Probably just a typesetter's error on the map.
