NEW! PHILIP FERRANTI is a hiking adventurer, writer, and author of 140 Great Hikes in and near Palm Springs. He has volunteered to guide us through the extraordinary Mecca Hills to locate “The Big Split Rock” Slot Canyon. You will proceed through narrow slot canyons, climb up small rock chutes or over boulders and even sometimes under them! We will explore other nearby slot canyons too. This is a true adventure! We shall all meet at the base of the Truck Stop sign at the off-ramp parking lot at Dillon Road on the I-10 freeway in Coachella Valley. Spot Light 29 Casino is located 46-200 Harrison Place, Coachella, CA 92236 and is adjacent to the Dillon Road off-ramp. Bring the ten-essentials, 2-liters of water, lunch, and sun-protection. Four-wheel vehicles needed to transport hikers. Call for reservations Ed Caliendo, Hiking Leader at (760) 328-1090 or firstname.lastname@example.org no later than November 28, at 5:00 p.m.
