Coachella Valley Natural Preserve is a 4.9 mile lightly trafficked loop trail located near Thousand Palms, California that features beautiful wild flowers and is good for all skill levels. The trail offers a number of activity options and is accessible from October until April.
What a gem. Took Papa(75) on full loop. 85 minutes. Hike out to McCallum Pond and back for a shorter and beautiful hike.
Pretty easy, well marked, well traveled trail. Took the moon country loop, very little elevation although there was one beautiful vista with 360 mountains. Was coming around 4pm in December and it was getting pretty crowded with folks looking to be out at dusk.
Really enjoyed this venue. Various trails are available - from easy to moderate.
Just a fun easy hike.
Very special. Lots of History
Really easy, more like a leisure wall. Beautiful oasis with wooden built pathway, desert scape and then another oasis! Gorgeous! I recommend going right before golden hour (in winter around 3/4) to avoid the desert heat and watch as the golden rays completely transform the oasis and make it even more surreal. BRING WATER!
Day hike to kick off 2016 and we had a blast we hiked out to McCallum Oasis then out to Moon Country and back I highly recommend this hike for beginners it's very flat and easy hiking
Stunning scenery and worth it! We loved it and will definitely go back!
This place is an undiscovered gem. It is what we all would expect if in our dreams we stumbled on to a desert oasis. The docent was fantastic. We added the Moon Country Loop to our trip out to McCallum Pond. The trip to the pond is a 2 mile loop and adding the Moon Country Loop added another 3 miles making our trip about 5 miles. Go see it!
