Trespassing is very, very common. I went from Goat Trails to Murry Peak this morning. I was first at 7am but many seen on return.

No sheer drop offs which allows for a safe adventure. I also like that you can walk to your ability and turn back. We did 5 miles and felt right. Look forward to returning and going further. The climb was steep and kept us breathing to a liking.

Easy scenic route

This a wonderful hike. I enjoyed being able to see where I was going and where I had been. I am just getting started with my hiking and did this one by myself, so I loved that I had cell reception all the way. Loved the sunshine!!!

Great hike which is not too over run with other hikers. Offers great views of Palm Springs and Tahquitz Falls.

Very steep grade.

Lovely walk. I had perfect weather but no shade on a hot day. No really difficult.

Very tough but very rewarding. The last quarter is quite steep and challenges your mental toughness. Aside from needing 2-3 litres of water, it is only worth the weight of bringing energy dense foods to minimize what you're lugging up the 8,000 plus vertical feet. For example: Carrots. Are. A. Bad. Idea.

I did this trail with a small group that included 3 kids, aged 6, 7, and 9. They loved it, although I would describe it as "moderate." We were lucky that the stream was low, so crossing it wasn't difficult. You have to navigate around a lot of horse poop in certain parts, so watch your step. I would certainly do this trail again. The stream and views are beautiful.!

Great hike...do it every time I visit the valley. Great views!

Very nice place but I think it is moderate not easy. There are times you have to climb rocks or go under. Crossing the stream requires balancing on rocks. Trekking poles and hiking shoes are definitely helpful. We live the sound of the water. We definitely recommend this place.

Great hike with great views with a loop back to the start.

Loved it but if you call climbing steps is easy? Then easy it is. Me not so much

Not really that hard, but some beautiful scenery, vistas and rock formations. Really gives one a true appreciation of the beauty of the desert.

Pretty and easy hike.

One of my favorite local hikes -- in Spring there are wildflowers everywhere.

One of the best trails in Palm Springs, with a good chance of encountering big horn sheep.

Heart pounding climb, but the views are worth it. Make sure you go to Jane's Hofbrau oasis and Eagle Canyon.

Amazing hike and experience. The ranger told us it takes the average person 6 hours to complete the trail. We were racing the sun as we got a late start so we managed to complete it under that time. The trail is somewhat well marked. I did the trail in hiking shoes, nothing extra and I was fine. Hiking poles definitely would have been nice at some points. Also make sure to wear layers as the sun sets the mountain gets pretty chilly! I actually thought the view at Wellman’s Divide was better than the view at the summit.
