Mecca Hills


Located approximately 40 miles southeast of Palm Springs along the San Andreas Fault are the Mecca Hills. The Mecca Hills were formed by the convergence of the North American Plate and the Pacific Plate along the San Andreas Fault. The Painted Canyons, named for the beautiful hues of rose, pink, red, purple and green is the center attraction. Join us, CSUSB Adventure, as we explore the ladder slot canyon loop hike. A five mile adventure through twisting canyons and ladders that we will climb up and down. The hike itself takes about 4 hours to complete so bring plenty of water to stay hydrated.
