This tour combines the two best ways to see our gorgeous Valley, biking and hiking. We start riding from our shop in downtown Palm Springs. The bike route is ten miles round trip and takes us through some of Palm Springs's older neighborhoods, including the Canyon Country Club area. On this tour, we will enter Indian Canyons, the ancestral home of the local Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians, and take the climb to the Andreas Canyon trailhead. From there, we will take an easy and scenic nature walk that includes several stream crossings, incredible rock formations, possible wildlife sightings, a canopy of native palm trees, and stark desert canyon scenery. Guests will enjoy the varied and exotic view close to downtown Palm Springs!

The Earthquake Canyon Express - Riders are treated to a geologic extravaganza on this 20-mile tour that descends through the heart of the San Andreas Fault zone on a paved road to the heart of grape country near Mecca. There are no crossroads, no turns, and very little traffic, which makes this a relaxing sightseeing adventure. Riders will see the stark beauty of the desert as they descend a total of 1600 feet over the route.
The course takes riders from the transition zone between the Colorado and Mojave Desert. From there, it winds its way through the narrow canyon walls of Box Canyon. Then, it finishes with spectacular views of the Salton Sea, Mt. San Jacinto, the All-American Canal, and the agriculture of the eastern Coachella Valley. The tour concludes with a visit to the Oasis Date Gardens for a date shake and restroom break.
