Imagine native California fan palms and the rare desert pupfish in natural springfed oases in the middle of a barren desert, courtesy of fault movements that allows groundwater to come to the surface.
This is a hike that is in association with my other hike scheduled the precious day to Mt. San Jacinto. Some of us will be staying in Palm Spring after a long hike, and this is the next morning hike. However, you do NOT have to have gone on Saturdays hike to go on Sundays hike.
This is a great opportunity to hike around some very unique desert ecosystems. Please be aware though, that this a true desert climate, and even if it is not hot, you will want to have sunscreen, a hat, and plenty of water.
I have not actually hiked here myself, as last time I was in the Coachella Valley, I got there just as it was closing. But the trails are fairly easy and not super strenuous, but you WILL be exploring the trails just as much as I am.
