Begins just past the grassy area in front of the Mirada fountain that is located at the bottom of Frank Sinatra Dr. near Hwy 111. It moves off the street through a group of palm trees and continues parallel to the road. The trail crosses Frank Sinatra Drive and continues south up the mountain.

We really enjoyed the trail, starting from the employee parking lot to the right / opposite the Ritz Carlton Hotel. Lots of nice views, and a pleasant/easy hike.

This was a very nice trail. I would rate it on the hard side of easy or easy side of moderate. It is a single track so no walking side by side. If anyone is afraid of “being on the edge” there were only one or two times we felt the drop off was a bit steep. We hiked in amazing weather (70 degree January day) but there is no shade so on a hot day I would use caution to the time of day I hiked. I brought my walking sticks and was glad I did but I didn’t need them for most of the trail. We only saw a few other hikers on this trail when we were out and was surprised there weren’t more. We only walked the trail one way due to time. We ended up finishing the trail at the ritz and then walked down the main road to our car. We will do this hike again!

From the City Hall parking lot it was 4.6 kilometres. It took us 1 hour and 10 minutes. Good work out. Nice views. Narrow paths. Really enjoyed it but I think next time my reward will be breakfast at the Ritz

This is literally one of the ugliest trails I’ve been on. Unless you like views of trailer parks, I would skip it. The only plus is that you get some exercise. A treadmill might be better.

The Road Runner trail is obliterated by Rockside approximately one 12:45 3rd miles in. Take the side trail to the chuckwalla instead. Parking is available in the Rancho Mirage City Hall parking lot turn. South on Frank Sinatra and then immediately left into the parking lot. Then turn right to go to the parking lot in the back. Go up small trail, cross over the street, and the trail starts there. Gorgeous views. But still within earshot of the road.

NOT an 'Easy' rated trail. I only road to where the GOAT trail meets the bridge across from the Goat Trail Overlook trail head.
