At the right time of year, this hike, in one of the Wildlands Conservancy preserves, delivers a unique facet of the Southern California desert landscape. Hikers and their dogs cross a ribbon of the Whitewater River before climbing to an exposed ridge along the Pacific Crest Trail for panoramic views of green slopes against snow-dusted peaks cradling the Coachella Valley. This hike is the centerpiece to the Whitewater Preserve’s almost 3,000 acres of protected habitat within the 60,000-acre Sands to Snow Preserve system. The preserve was established by the Wildlands Conservancy and is one of the fifteen preserves in the 147,000-acre nature preserve system, the “largest nonprofit nature preserve system in California.”
