Take water

Tis is a tough trail...be sure to take water. There are always rescues on this trail as people are not careful enough and especially when it is hot outsi.

A challenge but great exercise. The path is narrow with loose rocks so I recommend using a walking stick and wearing the correct footwear. The view from the top is spectacular. Beware of the summer heat and the time of day that you hike, ESPECIALLY during the summer months.

Park behind the huge target center. For a steep incline hike go to the right of the trailhead. For a more easier escalated climb, turn left at the trail head. Both are worth the hike up once you see the fantastic views along the way. I'd recommend to pace yourself if you aren't used to hiking much. Just keep walking.... More

Be sure too wear comfortable walking shoes and take plenty of water. It is a moderately difficult trail, so water and a telephone are essential. At this time of year (summer), very early morning would be the best time to go. I think that I would leave little ones at home.

Took a walk up the trail one morning on our holiday, nice views and not too hard of a climb. Would only do in the early morning as later in the afternoon it gets quite hot!

I feel very safe on this trail, there are plenty of hikers and runners and they are all happy and pleasant. The trail is well taken care of, you can hike as far as you like. The view is amazing!

It was our first time in the Desert and our host family suggested this hike. It was a great time with my 2 10 year old boys and 12 old daughter. Not too hard but certainly a good workout. Definitely go early in the morning as I can't imagine hiking it in the heat of the day. Also bring plenty... More

While the Bump & Grind trail is not the most scenic hiking trail in the Coachella Valley, it is without a doubt the fastest route to a fantastic aerobic workout you'll find. Easily accessed behind the large Target store in Palm Desert at Hwy. 111, the Bump and Grind offers two different routes, one for the hiker seeking a more... More
