Bring more water than you think you need!

Description

This is a great long trail in the Palm Springs area. The first 3-4 miles are pretty steep which get you high into the mountains. The views from the rest of the run are quite spectacular. The next 9 miles are generally rolling up and down sections which are fairly easy to run. The route into Cathedral City is an approximate 1-2 mile descent. Be aware that there are not any bail out points on this route so bring plenty of water. I brought 3 liters and ran out of water around mile 12.

If you are going to be doing this solo, you should be very comfortable doing 16+ mile runs in rugged environments. You should also be prepared to self rescue as much of the trail doesn't have cell service nor is it easily accessible.
