The trail on the west side of Wildhorse, which is horse riders area, is a bit sensative. And its a tight trail so be extra careful

Description

A great way to get to the goat trails from the palm springs side of the mountain. Prepare for many switchbacks as this trail is a very exposed, cactus riddled joyride. Consisting of loose granite over hardpack, there are a couple tricky climb sections that are rocky technical, or loose and off camber. In essence very typical for the area given that 80% of the trails around here are black diamond.

To access the trailhead from the bottom, head up S. Palm Canyon Dr. off hwy. 111 toward the Indian Canyons take a left on Bogart Trail, then another left on Barona Rd. and park at the streets end where the trailhead is. Head up the trail and split right at the Shannon trail junction. Accessing the top is done via the Goat trails or Wildhorse.
