“A 2.4 mile loop through the desert.”— Wendy Sweet
Closed Tuesday and Wednesday

If doing a clockwise loop, stay left at the intersections going out. There are a few singletracks that cut back if you are looking for a short ride. Continue through the deep sand of the Desert Wash Loop to the Cholla Loop . When you arrive at the Canyon Loop , you can loop either clockwise or counter-clockwise. Both directions have a climb to a rocky jeep road and then come back down into the wash for the return journey.
To do this ride as a lollypop, start on the southside of the Desert Wash Loop and continue to the Cholla Loop . Ride the Canyon Loop loop in either direction, then retrace your steps back to the parking lot.
This ride is a good introduction to Coachella Valley riding. The climbing is fairly minimal compared to other trails, but the sandy sections and rocks make it challenging. Give the teddybear cholla a wide birth, you don't want to fall on one of those cactus. And, of course this is desert riding, bring lots of water and avoid midday riding.
