One of the trails at La Quinta Cove, open all year to all skill level. One of the best trails at La Quinta Cove that goes through the golf course, Morrow Trail and finally to Lake Cahillla.

Typical desert trail, maybe a bit more sandy than most which will give your calfs a good workout. Ends at a park with washrooms which is nice. Decent workout with the ups and downs.

This is a great trail. Not too difficult, but a little challenge and interesting. It took much longer than I anticipated based on the length and elevation change, because most of the trail is soft sand. Good leg workout, but slows the pace. Bring a lot more water than you think you’ll need. Note that you cannot enter the Lake Cahuilla area without paying a park entrance fee.
