Palm Desert Patch readers have spoken in our weekly poll that determines the best of Palm Desert.

Patch voters selected the Bump & Grind Trail in Palm Desert and Rancho Mirage as the best place to hike in the that closed Friday morning.

Readers pointed out the trail's fitness attributes and the stunning views of the Coachella Valley for the reason behind the top pick.

The trail received 41 percent of the 55 votes cast in the poll, while the Santa Rosa National Monument and Art Smith Trail tied for second with 14 percent. The Hopalong Cassidy Trail came in third with 12 percent of the votes.

The Bump & Grind Trailhead is located off Painter's Path behind the Taret at the Desert Crossings shopping center in Palm Desert. It winds up into the Santa Rosa Mountains.

The top half-mile of the trail has been closed off to hikers since the California Department of Fish and Game installed a gate in June.
