Bear Creek Trail (La Quinta) Description

The Bear Creek Trail is located in the Fred Wolff Nature Preserve, a slice of protected area located on the western edge of the La Quinta Cove neighborhood. The concrete trail is easily accessible from the adjacent neighborhoods and provides opportunities to get outside in the shadow of the surrounding mountains. Despite the trees and flowering bushes on the trail, there isn't much shade to be had so be mindful when deciding when to go out. The Greater Palm Springs visitors guide recommends trying to catch a scenic sunset or sunrise along the path.

The trail is moderately challenging, sloping upwards from Eisenhower Drive to the southern endpoint at the designated trailhead on Calle Tecata. Additional hiking trails wander into the mountains and canyons for those looking to extend (and ramp up the difficulty) their excursions.

The Bear Creek Trail is a multiuse path for pedestrians and cyclists alike. This is a dog-friendly path.

Parking and Trail Access

The Bear Creek Trailhead is located on the west end of Calle Tecate. To get there, head south on Eisenhower Drive, turn right onto Avenida Bermudas and continue onto Calle Tecate. The trail is at the end of that street. It is adjacent to the the Cove Oasis Trailhead ushers trail users into a much more challenging, dirt hike.

At the north end, you can park on Eisenhower Drive, near Calle Tampico.

Excellent Trail

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.
