Rancho Mirage / Indio / Palm Springs

Will be staying the weekends in Rancho Mirage over the next couple of months and am interested in finding some close trails in an around Palm Springs/Rancho/Indio. Does anyone have any recommendations close by. I am already commuting 150 miles round trip back and forth to Desert Center everyday M-T so I am just looking for something close by that won't take 2 hours to get to. Any guidance would be appreciated greatly!

Not much at the desert floor. The little bit that was here are all of limits now. The closest are the Sulton See area, truck haven or Big Bear.

Yup, Truck Haven would be the closest.

I agreee - Truckhaven has a wide assortment of different types of trails.
Not too far away either.

We were supposed to be going out there this weekend but ended up having to reschedule to hopefully next weekend.... of course this weekend is nice weather and next weekend is supposed to be 97-98 degrees

Look up the Bradshaw Trail too. Lots of fun side trips and a very long off road trail. It is from south of Blythe to the Salton Sea.

Welcome to our desert. You can head up Hwy 74 and hit the trail to Santa Rosa Mt. Great views up there. Also head up Hwy 62 off the 10 west to Yucca Valley. From there you can go through Pioneer Town and take fire roads to Big Bear. There are plenty of side trails with different levels of difficulty.
