nice trail right behind target off of painters path. signs posted to lock car to avoid theft. i didnt have any issues. there are a few trails there to choose from. when you do the bump and grind you can continue around as it does loop back to the same spot. i was not sure and went down the same way i went up and its a bit rough downhill the other aide is more of a gradual decline. enjoy. i did.

This is one of the locals' favorite. is crowded, it has nice panoramic views and gives you a good workout.
There isn't so much to see though, just rocks :)
Do it in clockwise direction

This is very challenging, no shade, you go straight up. I do like this trail, must wear a hat and have lots of water. Have not made to the very top yet. Some day

I enjoyed it. Great view of the city down below. You don't realize how high you are climbing because the trail snakes around the mountain.

We took the side trail that went straight up, it was very challenging but it was a beautiful view looking over palm desert. The hike back down, was also beautiful and a little crowded but very fun. 10/10 would recommend!

It's can be a strenuous climb if u take the left to go up, the right side is less strenuous. Nice desert views. Less crowded on weekdays. Packed on weekends.
Very good workout. It's a loop. Good hour trail.
Have good trail shoes cos it's sandy and rocky coming down. No cover, no water fountains and no rest rooms. Bring water trail is in the sun.

The grind part of this trail is not moderate, it's strenuous, but it's over in about 10 minutes. The bump and grind is an excellent conditioning hike, and probably the most popular in the Coachella Valley.

Harder then easy. But such a great hike. Especially if you take left trail at the start. 0
