Easiest accessed hike in the valley. Right behind palm desert target. easy but still solid climb for avid hikers, not so avid hikers may struggle. Go right if you want less of a steep incline.

We went past the first two oases, and with view of the third oasis on the left the trail turned to the right, ascending the ridge. When we crossed over the ridge (perhaps .4 mile from the second oasis) we were rewarded with a terrific view of the valley. Highly recommended.

Nice wide trail and well used. Best done counter clockwise, as it is steep at the beginning in this direction with a flat return. Good views of the airport and the Bob Hope home. Connects to other trails, so be careful not to take a wrong turn.

Great trail. Nice views of the Coachella Valley. Fun morning walk.

Gets the heart rate up in places, but the reward is beautiful views.

The cost is $12.50. We went on a Saturday and it was beyond crowded esp. On their main waterfall which we couldn’t enjoy so we started walking out and found a smaller one where we got in and chilled for a cool minute, but eventually the ranger (from the other side of the trail) told us to get out and followed us to make sure we stayed ON the trail. I guess it’s really nice for a family hike but that’s about it. Rangers are strict.

As advertised. Walked the steep front half and jogged the second half down. Took us an hour and ten minutes.

good hike, start early

it’s open, $12.50 per person, but worth it. water is running high right now so waterfall is impressive. must see if you live in/visiting palm springs area.

Great hike. A bit of a scramble/bushwack to get to the peak, but not bad at all. Saw a few snakes, including one rattler, and lots of lizards and wild flowers! Moderate, not hard hike. Bring sunscreen.

Beautiful challenging trail with high steps/stepdowns. The trail is a must hike here in ps. you will need 32oz of water and a mask or face covering, but waterfalls makes it worth it!

Good trail but didn’t have the besttt views. It was still very pretty but also a little anti-climatic. Definetly a good trail and lots of desert wildlife. Took us about 3 hours and make sure to bring plenty of water.

This is a nice desert hike. It definitely takes some work to get to the oasis, but the trail is easy to follow and it is well worth it. Make sure to pack sufficient water; it can be hot out there.

We had fun doing the first 2 miles up through the switchbacks... small stream running through most of the initial trail, small pockets of flowers, some gnats but not bad. Beautiful view once you get up high.

WARNING! Trail from hell. The beginning section is a deep sand wash and you will be covered in sand half way through it. As soon as you begin heading up into the hills, the trail is lined with hay grass that gets into your dogs fur. My dog began whimpering because he was completely covered in hay needles. It was very painful for him. Worst trail in the valley.

this is an amazing hike, beautiful, interesting, tough, but not murderous... one mention, there is a serious beehive about the 4 mile mark coming from the Hwy 74 trailhead. you cross a small dry riverbed with a trail marker on the other side leading to a small narrow canyon. about 15-20 ft from that marker is a beehive in the rocks on the right. if you're walking you won't hear it until you're right next to it. i only avoided it because a trail runner coming back told me he got stung about 8 times. in this day & age and in this area of the country you have to assume that wild hives have some degree of africanization. i did not try to pass the hive because the canyon is so steep and narrow, you can't get more than 6-8 feet away. i was also ready to turn around anyway. however, i saw a gentleman on my way back who says it's been there for months and he "just avoids it". i don't see how. i would climb the rocks rather than try to pass it in the canyon. your choice, just know it is there.

Fairly easy. Nice views. Water stops the whole way up to refresh or relax.
