Temporary Closure of Trailhead at Golf Center Parkway and Avenue 42

Indio Water Authority (IWA) is pleased to commence the construction of fencing, parking, access and safety improvements for the trailhead at the end of Golf Center Parkway and 42nd Avenue by the Coachella Valley Canal. The improvements are made possible through the collaboration and funding by the Coachella Valley Mountains Conservancy (funding through Proposition 12) and City of Indio/the Indio Water Authority.

To ensure the safety of the public and accommodate heavy equipment for the project, the trailhead will be closed from January 6 through February 17, 2020; please note that street parking is not allowed in the area.

Once improvements are complete, the trailhead will reopen and the public is invited to enjoy the East Indio Hill Trails (aka East Indio Hills Badlands). The approximately 5-mile trail was completed by the Friends of the Desert Mountains as part of a trails network in the Northern Coachella Valley.

Please contact the IWA Project Manager, Mario Camacho at (760) 625-1786 or if you have questions or concerns regarding this project.
