    Trails in Palm Springs

    Im heading to Palm Springs this coming Memorial Weekend and was wondering if you guys had any input on the trails out there that I should ride?

    Thanks in advance.

    When I'm in PS, I like to try to ride the Goat Trails. They can be accessed from Highway 111 next to the Von's shopping center. There are videos on YouTube under "Goat Trails." They start with a hellish climb. Bring lots of water. Also of Highway 111 is the road to the tram. It is paved, but long and is quite the ride up. The ride down will test your nerves and brakes. It is smooth and very fast.

    Watch the weather.....could very well get extremely hot out there. Unless you start really early to avoid the heat. Have been out there in mid May and by late morning was already in the mid 90's.

    This is my favorite:
    Geoladders -- Palm Canyon Epic

    However it requires a shuttle.
    I resolve to constantly assert my honest opinion on anything and everything - whether it is requested or not.

    I rode the Goat Trails yesterday and this morning; both at 6:30 am. It was HOT and the climbs were killer. I admit to lots of hike-a-bike..
