Things to Do Nearby
The Big Morongo Canyon Preserve spans 31,000 acres of wildlife in the Little San Bernardino Mountains. Located where the Mojave and Colorado Deserts meet, the area boasts an especially diverse array of wildlife. The preserve offers hiking and horseback riding to explore the area’s lush desert oasis landscape. Visitors may spot mule deer, bighorn sheep, mountain lions and other mammals moving through the valley in search of food and water. Perennial streams and seasonal wetlands attract migratory birds, making the park one of the country’s best birdwatching sites.
The Mission Creek Preserve is another wildlife viewing area with miles of trails and four stone casitas perfect for a picnic after a day of hiking through the valley.
Visitors can also explore Cabot’s Pueblo Museum, housed in the Hopi Indian pueblo-style home of adventurer and artist Cabot Yerxa.
