The Palm Springs Terrain

ATV driving through Palm Springs

The riding area -Ocotillo Wells State Vehicle Recreation area is an 85,000-acre state park filled with wonderful desert trails and washes for you to explore. We have a few destination spots that take you down dirt roads, thru washes and canyons to see great spots.

 

Exciting Spots to Explore Include:

Gas Domes

These mysterious waterholes produce large gas bubbles that rise up through muddy water. The water travels to the surface, emerging through a natural crack in the desert floor.

Pumpkin Patch

This unique landscape is the result of wind and water continuously eroding the surface soil and revealing these globular sandstone concretions.

Shell Reef

Park beneath the reef and examine the soil. You will find not rock or sand but fragments of fossilized oyster shells. Look closer and you will find entire shells and even pieces of the reef which have fallen down the slope. The reef is estimated to be 4 million years old!
