Wide well maintained cement trail with numerous shade structures with bench and water fountains for people and pets to rest and rehydrate out of the sun. We started from the north east at Indian Waters RV Park, and rode the bikes to La Quinta. Many of the streets along the way have good bike paths. We started the trail from the north. It is very scenic as you wind through the outskirts of a lovely La Quinta neighbourhood, and then the trail follows the base of a small mountain range and aqueduct. We finished at the Cove Oasis Trail system in the south, which we will try another day, as it has many gravel trails to explore.
Great if you're a beginner cyclist or runner. Not terribly long or hilly, with just enough to tire you out and get the heart going if you take it both ways.
Quick and easy ride with my husband and 12 year old son. Got windy going back to where we parked but it was an overall great bike ride on a Friday afternoon.
We parked in a taco chain parking lot at corner of Winchester and Ynez. Rode to the end of the trail and back. Trail is nicely paved and wide enough. Did encounter a few other trail users, including a runner that insisted in running against traffic…well Okay then. Really nothing spectacular to report for this trail. Was good for a quick short ride.
This trail is great for novice riders, walkers and I believe you can actually ride horses on it. I took my 9 and 7 year old on a bike ride and it only took an hour or so.
