This is a great trail from the La Quinta Cove to Lake Cahuilla. The trail ascends through a “saddle” in the mountains at the east end of the Cove, drops down into a desert wash to Lake Cahuilla and returns via the same route. Hike rating is moderate and approximately 5 miles. Elevation gain is approximately 330 feet.
Be sure to bring plenty of water (at least 2 liters per person), sun protection, comfortable hiking shoes, lunch and snacks. Sorry, dogs are not allowed on this trail.
Location: Meet at 7:45PM at the Top of the Cove parking lot
