The Bear Creek Oasis Trail is a 4.5 mile strenuous trail with an elevation change of 1,989 feet. From the Cove Oasis Trailhead at the top of La Quinta Cove, follow Bear Creek Canyon to where the trail leaves the sandy wash - look for the signs.
A beautiful palm oasis awaits those hikers who can go the distance. From Highway 111 in La Quinta, go south on Washington Street, turn right on Eisenhower Drive (which eventually curves to the south) and continue going south to Calle Tecate. Parking is available in the trailhead parking lot or on the street.
