Discover a Desert Badlands

Explore a “desert badlands” and the strange and eerie world of the San Andreas Fault. You will be thoroughly entertained and enthralled as your expert naturalist guides bring the desert and its geology and history to life.

Upon arrival at Metate Ranch, guests will explore spectacular steep-walled canyons on foot. See twisted and tormented landscapes, warped and bent by the powerful movement of the Earth’s crust. Learn how tectonic forces created the slanted, vertical and wave-like structures that have been described as the most tortured landscape on earth. The truly adventurous can climb from the bowls of the earth to the crest of the fault line to enjoy spectacular views of the Coachella Valley.


NOTE: Guests looking for an easy hike / nature walk might enjoy our San Andreas Fault / Indian Cultural Bus Tour which includes a nature walk through a beautiful natural palm oasis.
