This hike offers some of the best 180 degree views of the Palm Springs area. A highlight of the trail is a view point high above Tahquitz Canyon with a view of the Falls. We will hike to the picnic tables at the top. The trail climbs in a series of switchbacks and traverses. Bring a lunch or snacks to enjoy at the tables at the crest as we relax before the trip down.
