One of the trails at La Quinta Cove, open all year to all skill level. Relatively flat trail with panoramic views of the mountains to the south.

Great trail, definitely not for the novice. Don't mistake any of the summits along the way for the end - keep going until you come over a ridge and see an oasis of 20 palm trees nestled way up in the hills. Incredible views along the way. Bring more water than you think you need.
