From the bloggers at Wheeling It.
We’re enjoying our very last week here in Desert Hot Springs which means we’re winding down to San Diego (our next stop) and my flight home to Europe for Christmas. Whoo whee! I know this makes me sound like an old geezer, but time really flies!
One of the blog posts I wanted to write before we left was to round-up my favorite hikes with doggie in this area. You see there’s actually a ton of hiking around Desert Hot Springs/Palm Springs but, rather disappointingly, a lot of it is on Preserves or Indian land that does not allow dogs. So, many of the “classic” hikes like Indian Canyon, Thousand Palms and Tahquitz Canyon are not paw-friendly.
In fact when I first got to this area ~5 years ago I had a helluva time finding ANYwhere to take the doggie. The online info is terrible and you have to dig deeeeeep into trail-hiker comments to get any indication of whether doggie might be allowed. Even then it’s vague.
