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

Amazing Trail

It's the best trail if you're a fan of actor Bob Hope; it's the closest you'll ever get to the most famous house in Palm Springs. Depending on what time of day you hike this place, you will encounter some shaded areas where some trails you'll completely broil in the Sun. Best to go there early in the morning around 7:30 or 8 am. There's also the right season to hike anywhere in Coachella Valley between October through February are the coolest weather and the best time because you won’t have to carry any water bottle. (March - September) is too hot where you must have a water bottle if not a camel back because your life will depend on it. Don’t under estimate hiking any trails during the summer time especially here in Palm Spring or Palm Desert; hikers have died because they simply didn’t bring enough water.

Note: There's no cost to park or hike. No trashcans, benches, restrooms or drinking fountains.

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!
