Covered Wagon Tours
Palm Springs, CA 92253
Experience the Coachella Valley Preserve like a pioneer (well, your covered wagon has better tires for a smoother ride) as two mules pull you through established desert trails. Seasoned muleskinners tell you all about the landscape, wildlife and history of the land as you watch the sunset over the San Jacinto Mountains. What’s a muleskinner? A genuine cowboy, blacksmith or teamster who navigates a team of mules across old desert trails. Once you arrive at “camp,” they’ll serve a chuck-wagon dinner. As the stars come out, relax to the sounds of guitar player John Malcolm Penn as he sings about the history of California and plays old-time Western and cowboy tunes.
