Walk & Hike with Kim

Walk and/or Hike with Kim Every Week

Please register with the group so that I have your contact information in case plans change.

Date, Times and Locations will be announced in the Women's Newsletter each Thursday as the hikes are often dependent on weather conditions.

Next walk is Sept 29nd at 6:15am. Chuckwalla trail in Rancho Mirage

Meet in the parking lot behind the Rancho Mirage City Hall

The trail initially passes jagged rocks with a few palms and desert willows along the way. After a half-mile, it junctions with the Chuckwalla Loop. Turn right/north onto the loop.

The Chuckwalla Loop portion of the hike is cut out of the foothills.

The Chuckwalla Loop is etched out of the hillside, but there are no steep drop-offs. It also offers great views of the Little San Gorgonio Mountains, which form the Coachella Valley’s north/east flank.

At 0.7 miles, the loop reaches a service road. Go straight, following the dirt service road’s north side. At highest point, there are great views of Rancho Mirage and the Coachella Valley. When the road veers south, the Chuckwalla descends toward the Mirada Villa. Once at the villas, the trail climbs to the ridge top.

It then heads southwest down the ridge’s other side, offering views of Cathedral City’s Suntown area. At the ridge’s end, the trail winds down to the Ritz Carlton, ending at Frank Sinatra Drive just east of where the road ends in a cul-de-sac.

Walk is 3 miles, with 500 feet elevation. Do all or as much as you want. I am not a fast walker. 

Make sure to bring a liter of water.
