The beginning of the trail goes above a residential area for about 1/4 mile...don't let this deter you from continuing! This trail is very cool. Great views and other trails connect toward the top! Gorgeous rocks and mountains and flowers and cacti. Dogs can come on PART of the trail. You will run into a sign indicating that dogs are not allowed past that point.

Decent desert hills type trail. Need to be in ok shape as there’s fair bit of elevation. Wear good footwear (good runners, trail shoes) as a variety of surfaces to go over. Try and start by 8/8:30am—small parking lot at bottom fills up after that, especially weekends. And of course, early start in the heat as hills provide some shade from rising sun in hours just after sunrise. Great views at top.

Lots of old Palm Springs 'royalty' along this trail, with great views. Can be a bit steep/tough for novices, but if you take it slow and steady, it's worth the effort!

Great trail, good workout. Unfortunately recent rains have damaged many areas, some are difficult to negotiate. Once you reach the top there are many connecting trails.

The beginning, behind the mobile home park, is pretty boring, but be prepared for gorgeous views past that. Great for a quick walk on a weekday morning.
