Bump and Grind Trail is a 3.4 mile out and back trail located near Palm Desert, California and is rated as moderate. The trail is primarily used for hiking and is accessible year-round.

Great workout especially the first mile going up up up ... to the sky!! It's busy, parts of the trail a little steep, good idea to check behind you as there are runners on the trail, especially coming down. Other than that, a great hike!

The trail map listed on this site is not Bump and Grind. It is the Mike Schuler Trail, Bump and Grind, parts of Herb Jefferies Trail, and parts of Hopalong Cassidy.

It was a very good workout but it is so crowded it really takes away from the hike. I will never go back unless it's raining or night time...... Maybe then it will be ok. I thought I was at Disneyland. Wtf?

It's definitely an exercise trail. Only do this trail if you need to work out. It's a popular trail.

For new bikers to trail I would suggest a helmet and taking it a little slow the first time.

I tend to mention the Bump N' Grind whenever a hiking day is being discussed. It is one of the few Free trails in the Desert that can definitely bring a good workout along with the beautiful scenic overview. There is also a vast beautiful trail that has become restricted due to the protection of Big Horn Sheep, but that normally doesn't stop people from exploring.
