One of our favorite spots in Palm Desert. Great views & you can bring your dog along! Trail is steep but short. It’s a good, easy workout!

A favorite for taking my dog! It's best to go early because after the sun rises there isn't much shade at all and it starts to heat up pretty quickly. Also be sure to bring plenty of water, more than you think you'll need. They have dog bowls at the top so your dog can drink, too. It's so nice.

I have seen the Cross while driving South on Bob Hope many times so it was great to actually hike up to see it.
