Take Hwy 111 towards Palm Desert. Turn right on Painter's Path.
Great panorama views of the private golf course and all of Palm Springs. Hard to get to, but fun if you like nothing but rocks and sand.
I'm from out of town and have not been on this trail before. I'm not in the best of shape but this trail is tough. If look elsewhere if you ride a bike. Not to mention in February when I went. 2-14-15 it was extremely busy. I didn't even make it up the first switchback. Done deal for me. Turned around and went back to my car
