I am looking for the highest and most westerly spot within the park boundary that I could do a 2 day backpacking trip. Anyone have any ideas?

The Combs Peak / Bucksnort Mountain area along the Pacific Crest Trail north of Hot Springs Mtn. Nice, wild country back there.

Not sure if your desire for 'highest' spots are due to cooler temperatures, if so, the Culp Valley area is 'west' and relatively high (3000 - 4000 ft). Then there are the San Ysidro mountains, hellish terrain, but high and just west of Borrego Springs.

I like the fauna/flora of the higher altitudes near the desert as well as lower temps. Near Whale Peak for example. Remoteness also is important.
