A somewhat short hike but good views of the local valley. You pass by Bob Hope's house on the way up! No trees or shade. Recommend doing this during the cool months. Some pics and the hike profile are located via the link below.
Emily P. on Araby Trail
This is one of my favorite Palm Springs hikes. Offers amazing views of the valley and up-close views of stunning homes owned by Bob Hope and Steve McQueen to name a few. Take the trail up past the homes and you're rewarded with great views of Murray Hill. What I love about this trail is that you can customize your hike as it allows access to several trails including Henderson, Garstin, Goat Trails, and Shannon to name a few... awesome hike!
