Boo Hoff Trail is a solid singletrack ride option from the La Quinta cove with a great climb and downhill. Like most of the trails in the Coachella Valley, this one is rocky and a bit technical. It has a good 3.5-mile climb with 1500 ft of elevation gained. However, the singletrack downhill makes the climb well worth the effort.

There are a couple of short branches off of the main trail during the first half of the ride that are worth exploring.

Access Info

Take Jefferson Street to the the La Quinta Cove to Lake Cahuilla Trail that will bring you back to the start.

       It's ok for hikers and equestrian but not bicycles? That's dosen't make sense, horses do more damage than bicycles do. And horses shit on the trails and there owners dont clean up after them
