The Randall Henderson loop is actually comprised of 3 trails - the Desert Wash Loop, the Cholla Loop and the Canyon Loop . That's a lot to pack into 2.4 miles, but as with most desert riding, these are long miles.

Access Info

The trailhead begins at the Santa Rosa and San Jacinto Mountains National Monument Visitor Center. Parking is free. There are free maps and bathrooms at the visitor's center, which is open Open Thursday through Monday
