Description

Like most of the trails in the Coachella Valley, this one is rocky and very hot. It has a good 3.5-mile climb with 1,500 ft of elevation gained. However, the views from the top make the climb well worth the effort.

There are a couple of short branches off of the main trail during the first half of the run that are worth exploring. Take Jefferson Street to the La Quinta Cove to Lake Cahuilla Trail that will bring you back to the start.

Parking lot to Boo Hoff to Lake to Cove connector loop is approximately 12.8 miles. Stunning and very runable. Go early as it gets super hot after 9am 12.8mi — 2h 39m

It’s about 2 miles from the parking to the actual Boo Hoff metal sign. Sand at a slight incline until you get there then a fun hike up.

Nice trail for a run. Ran up 3.5 miles and then reversed the route. Parked at the Cove parking area. Trail is well marked and the views are great. 7mi
