The Covered Wagon Adventure

Neil 3 (1)

     Experience an adventure into the Palm Springs’ Desert like our pioneer ancestors did on a mule-drawn Covered Wagon! Ride in an open-air, off-road wagon into 30,000 acres of a pristine wilderness preserve which is accessible only to our Covered Wagon Tours! Your expert, on-board, naturalist guide will entertain you as you explore the rugged, canyon landscapes, natural oases, flora & wildlife of this ancient, desert wilderness. Travel through this land as unchanged as nature had created it! Your wagon master will lead the wagon through a lush palm oasis where you can take an optional, guided, nature walk. One can only marvel at the geology of the San Andreas Fault!

Warning: If you are offended by our corny science jokes, it's San Andreas' Fault!

    Your senses will be captivated as you return to camp. You will be greeted back with live, western music and the smell of the Chuck-Wagon BBQ. Watch the marmalade sunset from one of the best views in the Coachella Valley. Enjoy the magic of a desert evening with music, barn dancing, games, and dining on BBQ under a desert sunset, moon, and stars. End your evening roasting marshmallows over an open campfire. Covered Wagons is the most enjoyable way to see, taste and experience our amazing desert ecosystem. Happy Trails!
