North trailhead: From North Palm Canyon Drive, turn west at Vista Chino; turn right on Via Norte; turn left on Chino Canyon Road; turn left on Panorama Road; turn left on Cielo Drive; turn left on an unmarked roadway. The trailhead is unnamed but marked with a sign asking hikers to stay on the established trails. South trailhead: Take East Ramon Road to its end. The trailhead is marked at the entrance to a preambulatory. At the base of the rise, follow the left ascent. (The right ascent comes to a dead end within a half mile.)

We took this trail down towards the golf course after climbing up on the Museum Trail. It was a much less used trail and the trail was not much more than a dry stream bed in many locations. There are some spots where a trail marking would have helped out. the hike down was easy, but if we had gone up it would have been more of a scramble.

Favorite trail in Palm Springs!! A lot of straight up climbing and rather long hike overall, but the view from the top is incredible. Highly recommend for those who like a little challenge when hiking. Pack a lot of water and go early in the day.
