This hike offers some of the best 180-degree views of the Palm Springs area. A highlight of the trail is a viewpoint high above Tahquitz Canyon with a view of the falls. We will hike to the picnic tables at the top and continue south to the trailhead on South Palm Canyon Dr. The trail climbs in a series of switchbacks and traverses, and bighorn sheep are frequently seen along this trail. Bring a lunch or snacks to enjoy at the tables at the crest as we relax before the trip down.
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.
