The trail is nestled in the Indio Hills and partially located on an active sand dune with fantastic views of Coachella Valley. We will be looking for early spring wildflowers. The area is also home to several species listed on the Coachella Valley Endangered or Threatened list.
This trail is friendly to dogs on a leash. The trail is a 5.6-mile loop trail with an elevation gain of 500 feet but we will be hiking about 3.5 to 4 miles. Bring 2 liters of water, snacks, wear closed-toed shoes, a sun hat and sunscreen.
RSVP is required and you must bring your ticket with you for check-in 15 minutes prior to start time. Ticket reservations begin 14 days prior to the event.
A suggested nonrefundable donation of $5.00 is appreciated and encouraged to support our volunteer programs.
