This is not a simple stroll up a small hill. This is a good work out with some terrific views and some very steep and narrow inclines. Something different to do early in the morning to get a decent workout. It's about 3 miles long.

Parking area is behind Target. Pull in parking lot and then around to the back. Bring lots of water. Get on the trail befor 8:00 to avoid the heat.

This is a great hike if you are looking for good exercise without having to leave Palm Desert. As others have mentioned, it is best to go early in the morning as there is no shade on the trail at all. Bring water!

Located right in town behind the Target, it was the perfect place to get a run/hike/bike in befog work or at the the pool all day. Trails are well marked and stunning views of the valley below. Trails climb quickly not for the faint hearted.

This is one of the best places for a short hike in downtown Palm Desert- worth the effort for the exercise and view

My sons hiked this trail and thought it was great for a quick hike! At the top you could see the whole Green valley and then the surrounding mountains. This little hike gave them the hiking bug and want to start hiking elsewhere!

The trail is great for a work out and a good view over Palm Desert, Rancho Mirage. It is a bit like walking up a gravel pit. No plants whatsoever. Personally I liked the hiking trails up the Tram Way better.

This is a very popular, easy to find trail behind the Target in Palm Desert. Some degree of mobility and physical fitness is necessary, but all ages can do it. Super for families. Right side is easier traversed with switchbacks, while the left side has a steeper pitch. The trail is narrow at points, and good shoes are a necessity... More

My husband and I did this trail every morning while on a recent visit to Indian Wells. Hubby said it should be called the "Meet and greet" trail as it gets pretty busy!.. It takes about an hour to do the whole thing, we did a walk/ run. It was super fun running down the hills. Also did the trail... More

I met my friend here for a hike followed by lunch in town and it was one of the highlights of our 2 week trip. It provides just the right amount of exercise, combined with fresh air and beautiful views. A great experience!
