Directions to Metate Ranch:

  • Take Take the I-10 Freeway to the the Monroe Street exit in Indio (Exit 142).
  • Turn left at the stop sign at the top of the Monroe Street off-ramp.
  • Take Monroe Street north approximately 2.2 miles until you climb up and over the levee.
  • As you drop down on the north side of the levee, you will see the Granite Construction complex directly in front of you.
  • Half way between the levee and the Granite Construction gate, there is a dirt road that goes off to the east (right).
  • Turn right onto that dirt road and make an almost immediate left into the dirt parking lot (follow the signs).
  • Your jeep and guide will meet you in the parking lot.


Note: If you get to the horse corral, you've gone too far on the dirt road. Please turn around at the corral and return to the parking lot.

If you are using a GPS to navigate, you can enter the address for Granite Construction: 38-000 Monroe Street Indio. However, you'll want to turn right onto the dirt road just before you reach the Granite Construction gate.
