      Coachella Valley is home to the Santa Rosa Mountains, where granite, desert flora, and sweeping views surround primo biking and hiking. And La Quinta, 25 miles southeast of Palm Springs, is a great entryway for hikers: Take the Cove to Lake Trail, a 2.5-mile one-way trek. Or, for serious burn, consider the strenuous 7.5-mile Boo Hoff Trail.

      More:
      Primary Trail Type: All-Mountain & Downhill
      Access Info:
      Take Highway 111 to La Quinta. At Washington Street, turn right. When you get to Eisenhower Drive, make a right turn and follow it until it ends at the top of the cove. Make a right onto Bermudas, and note that Bermudas becomes Calle Tecate. At the intersection of Calle Tecate and Avenida Ramirez there is a parking area in the dirt on the left. From the parking area follow the wide well marked trail to the “oasis” you will see up the trail to the right. The City of La Quinta has built a real nice hiking park in the area called ” Oasis Cove “, and the trail leads to that.
