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.

This was a nice moderate trail, we went up araby trail and continued on berns trail. Had some good lookout points and if you go early in the morning it’s not too busy and still some shade. Over all it took us just under 3 hours to complete with some time for stopping for pictures.

Great trail and amazing views. Started before sunrise and continued far past the end of this specific trail. Water is a must of course. Rocky, wonderful single track

Bob Hopes house view is perfect view. Good climb at 90 degrees. Bring water.

the end of this trail takes you to where you want to be. too good to turn around. so, plan for adding additional mileage once you make it to the ridgetop (aka: the end of this trail).

Nice trail but while hiking my car was broken into. Beware and do not leave personal items in your car.

A hot, steep but rewarding trail. Cool views of the valley. But you have to earn it

First time using this app. Second weekend hiking! I have to start early, like 6 or 7am. Started at 9am High was 95 by the time I was done. Nice trail and great close up of Bob Hope Famous house. Lots of Sage brush. Recommend!

Steep ascent and descent, winding up the canyon. Great views over Palm Springs, but I found on getting to the top, the rest of scenery was quite barren so didn’t continue on other trails.

park in the Araby Wash, walk down to foot of Rimcrest and go up Araby to the cairn. Drop down to the left of the cairn on Berns trail to the dry river bed and back up to the high cairn. From the high cairn drop down to the west 300 yrds and then head back down into the wash on the spectacular Shannon trail. At the base of Shannon is the sign on Earl Henderson. Head right down to the wash and the old stone houses and hoof it back to your car. Best loop hike in Palm Springs

This is accurately rated as moderate. Trail is in great shape but the elevation can be a little challenging even if you are a reasonably active person. The views are wonderful. We went to the peak at the small hikers’ rock formation. It took us 2.5 hours from pulling into the lot to pulling out with a few picture breaks and actual stops to hydrate instead of just drinking and walking. We should have arrived at 7:30 instead of 8:30. It got very hot very quickly so in hindsight we should have brought a few extra bottles of water to better hydrate. Overall, a great hike that I would definitely recommend!!
