Indio Hills Badlands Hike in the Coachella ValleyContributorFebruary 1, 2021Travel blog The Trail Share Tweet Last Modified: February 1, 2021 We headed to the left first, and I would recommend you follow the signs and do this as it is the most impressive section. The trail to the left starts to head uphill again, but now you are surrounded by wind caves and a narrowing canyon. It is a fun area to explore, and it continues to get better as you head on. The trail will connect with the long sandy walk you came in on, and you can take that all the way back to where you started. All in all, this is a great hike in Southern California with a beautiful landscape you can explore. Just don’t do it when it is hot. Let me know what you think in the comments.
