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.

Mostly a flat trail w little elevation. You are down in the wash a good potion of the hike so you are protected from wind but extremely hot. No shade the entire hike

The most scenic parts are as you nestle up next to the golf course on the mountain looking back. I did enjoy seeing the golf course but this is a very short part of hike.

The lake is not worth the hike and you only view it after you make a turn at the very end then walk a long distance into a park area

I was by myself, it was a beautiful walk. Enjoyed it, being new to hiking, I thought it was a great starting trail, just challenging enough.
