One of our favorite hikes in the desert. Easy enough for our 12-year olds, but please watch your step going up & down. It looks intimidating, but it's great fun, with the switchbacks up the mountain. Wouldn't recommend for a bike, but we saw nutters doing it. At the top of the switchbacks, walk off-trail to the right (East) side, up a little hill - at the top is an amazing panoramic view. Parking can be a challenge since this is a very popular trailhead for multiple trails, esp. on weekends.

Please be advised DOGS ARE NOT ALLOWED on this trail. Brown sign at bottom of trail (next to the trash can) states DOGS PROHiBITED. Please do not bring your dog here. Some people are still bringing dogs and worst of it is they are not picking up their doggy poop. Please do not bring dogs.

Loved this trail but I recommend you go up and down the sane route. Coming down the Bump and Grind is tough.

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
