The trail starts at The Four Seasons Hotel, so don't be fooled when your directions take you there. I was fortunate and was able to park in the valet section, but was given the go ahead from the people at the front desk.

The vistas are absolutely breathtaking in the beginning of the hike, and if you take a left to go around the loop, you will find yourself walking for a little while along an old riverbed. There will eventually be a trail that cuts off to the right from the riverbed so make sure that you take that - it goes uphill. Definitely check your map at that point so you don't continue along the riverbed.

Overall, it was a fairly easy hike but absolutely beautiful.

Even with its proximity to the residences of random desert dwellers this trail deserves its fifth star for its fun hilltop layout. Views upon return, the beautiful lands of my Native Cousins, the plateaus, the mountains, they breath into its hiker the nativity of their life... Thank you for being among us, as you are, not as the evil of our present system would have you be...

Nice light morning hike from right outside our balcony at the four seasons!

Nice trail. Great views
But starts at Four Seasons Hotel which must have been built since this All Trails map was drawn.
Trailhead is on the side of the service area road of the Hotel.
