The trailhead for this hike is at the end of the parking lot of Rancho Mirage Town Hall or City Council building. From the parking lot you gain elevation immediately. Views on this easy hike are interesting from every turn of the trail. The loop trail eventually passes by the Mirada Estates and the "in a holding pattern" Ritz Carlton.
We had a very leisurely stroll this morning. Not that we needed it, but we took a 20 minute break and got back to the car in 2 hours and 10 minutes.
