We will park at the Stone House and hike to the Pacific Crest Trail and back. The round trip is 7.5 miles with 800' elevation gain. The route is through a varied canyon and although it has been a dry year there should be some birds and possibly some flowers blooming due to recent rains. The route is a mild incline the entire route, and decline on the return. There will be some sandy stretches and some thorny bushes, so consider long sleeves and pants. The last 4 miles to the Stone House are driving on unpaved but even road.

Bring 1-2 liters of water and snacks and/or lunch. Hiking poles are not essential but bring them if you prefer. Expected hiking time will be between 3.5 and 4.5 hours.

Meeting 9:00 in the parking lot next to Carl's Jr, at the corner of N. Palm Canyon and Racquet Club in Palm Springs, enter on Racquet Club.
