Outdoor Activities in Cathedral City

Experience the Coachella Valley

Experience the breathtaking beauty of the Coachella Valley, Palm Springs and beyond while staying at our Cathedral City hotel. The majesty of the California desert surrounds Red Lion Inn & Suites Cathedral City, and even if you're not planning on embarking on an adventure deep into the hills, you can get your fill of fresh air and sparkling sunshine within minutes of your hotel room. 

The Araby Trail is a moderately-challenging option for hikers who want to stay closer to Cathedral City. With its downtown location but secluded feel, it's an excellent way to begin your day, not least of all due to the iconic houses you'll pass - among them the homes of Bob Hope, William Holden, David Janssen, Steve McQueen, and the Elrod House from Diamonds Are Forever. Pay a visit to the Frank Sinatra Gravesite before heading back to your Cathedral City accommodations. 

Desert Ice Castle is the perfect place to escape the heat. For skaters, hockey players and anyone else who loves the ice, the rink offers freestyle schedules, classes, special events and more. Visit for a solo session, schedule a lesson with an instructor, or just watch the figure skaters go by.
