This moderate, 1400 vertical feet trail is 7.2 miles round trip. It takes between 3-4 hours depending on how much time you spend in the Oasis. It is well-marked and easy to follow. There is a steep descent into the Oasis. Enjoy the sounds of the cactus and canyon wrens as you descend down into a beautiful serene oasis with the largest stand of native fan palms in the park. Essential hiking tip: go early as this is a popular trail. We started at 8 am and had the Oasis to ourselves for our picnic lunch. I rate this hike in my top 5 favorite hikes in and around the Coachella Valley.
