Hopalong Cassidy Trail
by Cobber99 on Mar 15, 2010
Palm Desert, California, United States
Hiking | 9.3 miles (13.5 miles away)
Opened in 2006 as a connector trail to the Art Smith and Bump and Grind trails, the Hopalong Cassidy trail (named for famed American movie and television cowboy icon of the same name), is one of my favorite 1/2 day hikes of the Lower Santa Rosa complex.  It features a lot of variety, beginning with the short meadow trek to the trailhead.  To get there, drive south on Highway 74 from Palm...

La Quinta, California, United States
Hiking | 8.3 miles (8.5 miles away)
Investigation of the cove hikes.  Trail only supposed to be open until April, but with the cooler weather - why not go now?Start at the west parking lot where Ave. Madero meets Tecate.  Short hike to the first "oasis" where the city has built benches and cover.  Exit the oasis to the southwest.  The actual canyon trail exits the wash and starts heading uphill.  Great views of Bear Creek Canyon and the...

Palm Desert - North Loop
by Cobber99 on Mar 06, 2010
Rancho Mirage, California, United States
Hiking | 7.2 miles (13.8 miles away)
A nice 7.2-mile loop consisting of the Mirage (a.k.a. "Bump-n-Grind"), Herb Jeffries, & Mike Schuler Trails.  Because most of these trails are so short, I thought it best to create some loops for people visiting to venture upon.  This loop allows you access to every north-end trail in the Palm Desert San Jacinto area.You will begin at the trail-head for the Mirage Trail and work your way to the top.  Then back...

The Living Desert Middle Loop
by stanford on Dec 30, 2008
Palm Desert, California, United States
Hiking | 2.2 miles (11.5 miles away)
This trail is accessible from within The Living Desert zoo.  We were limited in that we started late in the day (you have to leave the zoo by 5:00 PM), and were pushing a stroller.  So we were primarily limited to the "Middle Loop."  Otherwise we would have explored the "Wilderness Loop," which goes up into Eisenhower Mountain.This is a very gentle, level portion of the trail (~100 ft elevation change).  Being...

Herb Jeffries Trail
by Cobber99 on Mar 06, 2010
Rancho Mirage, California, United States
Hiking | 0.7 miles (13.6 miles away)
This trail is a connecter trail between the Mirage Trail (N.W. end) and the Hopalong Cassidy Trail (S.E. end).  Although I did not map it, the trail actually extends a bit further to the S.E. looking down on Edgehill Dr. below and Fox Canyon to the south.This trail is a tribute to the legendary “Bronze Buckaroo”, Herb Jeffries, a film star and recording artist who, in the era of popular western movies,...

Hiking | 9.0 miles (13.6 miles away)
Hiked with my friends Brian, Randy and Mary Ellen. Started at the Art Smith trail head just south of Bighorn CC. A great hike! Great views of Bighorn CC and Red Hawk CC. Stopped at the Palm Desert cross for a quick bite then on to the finish at the Bump n Grind. A little over 9 miles. Brian kicked my butt!

Mike Schuler Trail
by Cobber99 on Mar 06, 2010
Rancho Mirage, California, United States
Hiking | 0.8 miles (13.7 miles away)
Often confused with the Mirage (a.k.a. "Bump-n-Grind") Trail, the Mike Schuler begins on Painter's Path Road (just behind the Target store) and works north toward the Mirage Trail.  The Hopalong Cassidy trail begins at this same point but meanders south.There isn't much for history written about this trail.  The city of Palm Desert lists this trail on their city hiking map, and there is a prominent sign on the south end (no...

The Koko-Nut Hikers complete another Coachella Valley Hike.  Mark,Ty and Royce hiked from the top of the Cove in La Quinta to the Sugar Loaf Cafe on Highway 74. It was a gorgeous day.  The temperatures were cool with a good wind.  It appears we were first hikers on the trail after Tropical Storm Norbert heavy rains (3-4") on 9/8/14.  In some areas, the trail was in bad shape due to wash outs...
