“A dirt access road to Covington Flat and the backcountry registration site.”— Zander Göpfert
From the parking area at the Covington Flat backcountry registration site, head north on the Lower Covington Flat Road, looking for the first left onto Covington Flats Crossover Road. Eureka Peak is 3.8 miles (6.2 km), one way.
Continue west at the junction with the California Riding and Hiking Trail and the Eureka Peak Road. This road is steep near the end, but the top offers views of Palm Springs, the surrounding mountains, and the Morongo Basin.
Your trip will be 6.5 miles (10.5 km) longer if you hike or drive over to the backcountry board, a starting point for excellent hiking.
