This unique nature tour begins with a hotel pickup at select locations in the Palm Springs area. Hop on board a comfortable, air-conditioned coach and enjoy the drive to three of the 12 distinct nature preserves of the Wildlands Conservancy.
This 4-hour tour travels from the Colorado Desert to the Mojave Desert and back. Follow along with the naturalist guide to see Mount San Jacinto, the second highest mountain range in Southern California. Learn about the huge aqueduct system in Southern California and see visual evidence of the mighty San Andreas Fault.
See the rivers, marshes and trout ponds as well as the shady, tree-lined paths — all, amazingly, in the desert. Marvel at the incredible scenery from the coach, stopping occasionally to hike some of these treasured natural environments.
Snacks and bottled water will be provided along the way. Wear comfortable walking shoes as short, flat hikes are included at each stop.
The tour ends with a return trip and hotel drop-off in Palm Springs.
