Description:

Experience California's Little Grand Canyon, a truly outstanding wilderness treasure, in the comfort of a full sized SUV.

California's Little Grand Canyon is desert backcountry located in Palm Desert, approximately 30 minutes east of Palm Springs.

This Little Grand Canyon Tour combines all of the best elements of a classic desert backcountry tour including narrow washes, magnificent ridgelines, technical off-roading, colorful canyons, palm oases, slot canyons, historic mining and cattle trails, and even a drive through some agricultural fields.

The off-road portion of this tour begins near Chiriaco Summit and heads through the dramatic red canyons that General Patton used to prepare his troops for desert warfare during World War II. The rugged jeep trail is punctuated by endless vistas and unique red rock formations not ordinarily seen in the greater Palm Springs area. Head back to the highway along a desert wash that skirts the Chocolate Mountain Aerial Gunnery range and cross the historic trade route known as the Bradshaw Trail. 

As you explore this wilderness treasure, your friendly and knowledgeable guide will provide insightful information about the natural environment surrounding you.
