Painted Canyon / Mecca Hills Jeep Tour (4 Hours)

Painted Canyon / Mecca Hills Jeep Tour (4 Hours)

Duration: Private PM Tour (up to 7 pp)

Location: Palm Springs Desert Resort Communities, CA, United States

The adventure begins the moment you board your Big Red Jeep and depart on a 40-minute journey through the lush agricultural lands at the Eastern end of the Coachella Valley.  Discover why this part of the valley is called the Salad Bowl as your guide explains the importance of agriculture to the economy of the Palm Springs area.  On the way you will pass lush Polo Grounds, the Martinez Landslide, and fields of Date Groves, grape vineyards, and other crop fields. As we work our way East, you will enjoy incredible views of the Salton Sea, the second largest inland body of water in the United States, where over 400 species of migratory birds rest and nest on their migratory path along the pacific flyway.  Then we are on to the awe-inspiring painted hills. Thrust up by tectonic collisions and cut into endless mazes by erosion, these steep-walled canyons offer some of the most spectacular scenery, tortured rock formations, and amazing colors seen in the desert.   Tour Advisories:  Guests with neck or back injuries and women who are pregnant are advised to consult with their doctor before taking any Jeep Eco-Tour.   There are NO RESTROOMS available on this tour. Due to BLM restrictions, guests must hike (through sometimes deep sand) into some of the canyons on this tour.  Therefore,  proper walking/hiking shoes are required for this adventure. The amount of hiking can be adjusted on this tour according to guest preference and ability.   Hikes range from easy to challenging (based on guest preference).

Starting From: US $150
