Description

This run is normally done as a shuttle. Park at the top on Highway 74 and Pine View Drive. There are several places to stage a car at the bottom depending on which option you decide to finish out the trail...the easiest being at the Indian Canyons. For a longer run one can exit either down Dunn Road to Cathedral City or through the "Goat Trails" down to the Vons Rimrock Center on Highway 111 in Palm Springs.

I strongly recommend bringing a GPS and having this trail downloaded to the Trail Run Project mobile app! The trail has very few markings and plenty of false turns, so be prepared. When you run about a mile or two from the start, you'll get some great views of the desert floor. Take a moment to get your bearings, because you'll be looking down a huge canyon (nice work!).
