Bear Creek Canyon Trail
La Quinta, California 92253
The Bear Creek Canyon Trail provides a long, heart-pumping hike with spectacular glimpses of the Coachella Valley below and the high country above.
While many other oases in the valley are right off the road, and consequently are jam-packed during the weekends, this palm oasis weeds out much of the sightseeing crowd and leaves you in solitude for the most part.
Due to its remoteness, you may be rewarded with a bighorn sheep sighting if you keep your eyes peeled. It can be tricky if you don’t watch for the trail to the oasis as it actually hops out of the wash into a side canyon.
Help us keep this trail beautiful and dog-friendly:
• Always follow the posted rules as they may have changed
• Respect and protect wildlife and habitats
• Pack in and pack out, leaving only paw prints
