Cathy is from Winnetka IL, where she directs and choreographs a children's theater. She has been coming to our desert for the past 4 years and rediscovered her love for hiking. She spends 5 and 1/2 months here and have never met a hike that she didn't love! She can't wait to explore new hikes and take people on some of her favorites. The desert is so beautiful and there are so many hikes to explore!

This is a shuttle hike.  Start point is behind Target in Palm Desert. Take tail to the left labeled Gaby Hayes.  Continue on trail until it intersects with Hopalong and then Hopalong will intersect with the Cross Loop.  Continue to the large cross. At cross trail goes to the left of the monument and continues as the Hopalong trail for the next 5.5 miles. Beautiful terrain and vistas of Stone Eagle golf course.
