Cove Oasis Loop
  • Cove Oasis
  • La Quinta, CA 92253

The Cove Oasis Loop, nestled at the base of the Southern Santa Rosa Mountains in La Quinta, is an easy, 1.8-mile stroll perfect for families and their four-legged friends. The mostly flat, gravel path (you’ll gain 161 feet total) begins at the top of the levee, a few steps into the Cove Oasis, a 114-acre open space set aside by the city. Turn right, and you’ll find a beautifully landscaped date palm oasis with pergolas and picnic tables. Pack a lunch and spend the afternoon immersed in the natural beauty that surrounds you. Mountain bikers getting ready to set out on one of the bike-friendly trails or just returning from a trek can also take the path to the picnic area for a rest or some shade. Several other trails, some more strenuous, embark from the area, which offers free parking in a lot at the corner of Avenida Bermudas and Calle Tecate.
