If this trail weren't so conveniently located and didn't have a scenic destination, I wouldn't recommend it. The first third is nestled in a crowded neighborhood, so it doesn't feel like a hike. It gets more interesting (and much steeper) when you leave the neighborhood, though. The destination offers great views of the valley and three mountain ranges: the San Bernardino, Little San Bernardino, and San Jacinto. I did this trail in 60-degree cloudy weather, and it was very comfortable. It must be unbearable on hot sunny days, though.

Good hike. Up and back took me only an hour forty five.

A great hike with good views of the valley. Wished I would have started earlier as it connects to Garsten and Berns.

Great little hike. Good amount of elevation change. Parking at trailhead is limited to about 10 cars.

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.

Interesting start, kinda feels like maybe you're walking on private property for the first 1/2 mile or so. The trail is single file and lots of loose rock. No trees, or shade for entire hike. Nice views, no bikes allowed.

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!
