Huntington Beach to Palm Springs Details?
« on: January 26, 2014, 05:36:08 pm »
Good Afternoon,

I'm planning a ride out to the Desert in a few weeks and I'm looking for feedback on the route. Obviously the SA River Trail to its end in Corona but are there any recommendations for picking through the rest of route until I get to Bob Hope Drive and the I-10? Rancho Mirage is my destination. Any help?

I am hoping to get away cross country in May and think I will use the jack Rabbit Trail. If you google maps it you can see if it works for you, it gets me to Beaumont in under 100 miles. I know a person who rode it and it is not paved so there is that to consider.

I've ridden on parts of this route but haven't done the entire trip at once. 

When the Santa Ana River Trail ends take Green River (cross over 91) .  Make a left on Palisades and then a left on Serfas Club.  Just before the freeway make a right on the frontage road.  This will put you on 6th.  Stay on 6th and it changes to Magnolia.  Stay on Magnolia until you get to Arlington and make a right.  Follow Arlington as it crosses Allessandro it changes into Chicago.  Then make a right on Central.  Just before the 215 make a right on Sycamore Canyon.  Make a left on Box Canyon road (cross the 215).  Follow Box Canyon and it changes to Ironwood.  Make a left on Redlands.  Make a right on  San Timoteo and follow it into Beaumont.  It becomes Oak Valley and dead ends at Highland Springs.  Make a right.  Then make a left on 6th/Ramsey.  This will take you to the ramp to I10.  Just before you get on the freeway see if you can find an opening that will allow you to walk your bike onto a frontage road that parallels I10.  Follow this frontage road (its a bit rough in spots) until you have to get on the I10.  You are at the ramp for the 111 into Palm Springs.
