“A trail from Lake Cahuilla to the top of the La Quinta Cove passing by some of The Quarry at La Quinta Golf Club.”— Mitch Moldenhauer
Family Friendly This trail is not that long and can be an excellent one-way hike if two cars are used.
Then the trail returns to a sandy wash for a short while and begins a climb through the pass to the La Quinta Cove. The top of the La Quinta Cove is widely used by dog walkers, mountain bikers, and runners. While the first part of the trail should be relatively peaceful and quiet, the top of the cove will have more activity.
