An interesting trail through Pushwalla Canyon to Pushwalla Palms that returns along a ridgeline with beautiful views.

The visitor center parking lot has limited hours that change by the season. It is best not to park there if you'll be running past 5 PM.

Runner Notes

Due to sandy soils, gaiters would be helpful.

Description

This trail can be completed in either direction. You can run the wash first or the ridgeline first depending upon your preference. There is a little more shade through the canyon, as you can hug the canyon wall from time to time. The trail is hard to follow through the Pushwalla Palms, as previous visitors have all taken different paths. There are numerous palm clusters along the San Andreas Fault in this area and Pushwalla is a large oasis. The trip along the ridgeline is quite enjoyable as once you're up top, the grade levels out and the views are outstanding in all directions.
