Description: The hike starts at the dirt road at the far eastside of Rimrock Plaza. At the water reservoir tanks we pick up a trail to the top of a plateau that affords great views of Palm Springs and Cathedral City. We then hike the plateau until we descend a canyon to Jane's Hoffbrau  Palm Oasis. No, there is no coffee served here, but it is a small beautiful canyon with a dry waterfall and it is loaded with palm trees. We will relax in the shade of the palms and then return on the same trail. 

Bring Ten Essentials (click here), water (1 to 2 liters recommended), trail snacks, sun protection, layered clothing. Carry Emergency Contact Information (ICE). Sturdy hiking footwear with good tread and adequate drinking water are required. Hiking poles may be helpful
