Any fun trails close to Palm Springs?

I'll be in Palm Springs this weekend with some friends, and I was wondering if there were any decent jeep trails to explore within a relatively short drive from town? I know there's a jeep tour outfit who does a drive in and around the San Andreas fault area, but I think I remember reading that it was private property and only the tour company is allowed on those trails.

I'd love to get a little 4x4 exploring in this weekend while I'm out there, if there's something anyone would recommend.

Thanks! Yeah, as I'm looking into it more, it seems like everything worth checkout out is an hour or more outside of Palm Springs. We'll just need to plan for travel time a little more. :-)

ocotillo wells (TDS) area is only 60 miles and is a straight shot up the 10. Whats the gripe? TONS of fun wheeling out there. Thats about all you got being in flame-town. And I mean that by the heat of course.

No gripes here. I'm going to be with a group of friends who are not into off-roading, so in order for me to be able to get in some time on the trail, I'm going to have to present a hell of a sales pitch. :-) If it were just me, I'd be there at the crack of dawn ready to play and explore!
