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.

on Cove to Lake Trail

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.
