Earthquake Canyon Bike Tour from Palm Desert California

Earthquake Canyon Bike Tour from Palm Desert California

Be treated to a geological 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. You will see the stark beauty of the desert as you descend a total of 1,200 feet over the route.

There are no cross roads, no turns, and very little traffic, which makes this a relaxing sightseeing adventure. The course takes you from the transition zone between the Colorado and Mojave deserts, winds its way through the narrow walls of Box Canyon, and 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 finishes with a visit to the Oasis Date Gardens for a date shake and restroom break.

A bicycle is an excellent mode of sightseeing. It allows you to see, smell, and hear more than you would from behind the wheel of an automobile while at the same time creating the natural high that good, outdoor exercise produces.

**Difficulty: Beginner to intermediate**
