Fobes Trail, a 1.5-mile trek, winds through chaparral and oaks to intersect with the Pacific Crest Trail on the pine-covered Desert Divide that lies south of Spitler Peak and north of Palm View Peak. This location provides spectacular views of the desert floor below. Its unique location provides an interesting ecological area as it climbs from low to high desert habitats.
Overnight opportunities for riders and their horses await at nearby McCall Equestrian Park and Ribbonwood Equestrian Campground.
