my favourite hike so far!
only problem we had was this app directed us to the info/ pay center at Tahquitz Canyon. We were meeting friends at the trailhead but we ended up no where near it. The trailhead (start) is actually on the other end or end of what's shown on this map. So across from Indian Canyon Golf Course

This is my favorite hike now. No time limits except daylight and enough mountain hiking to be strenuous but also enough walking to be enjoyable. I love hiking alone so it was nice that I had phone signal the entire hike for potential emergencies. I hiked from south palm canyon all the way to taquitz which was 6 miles and then walked back on palm canyon to my car which was another 2.5 Ish miles. Next time I’m going to lock my bike up at one end and leave my car at the other. I love that there are picnic tables and vista points at both ends of the hike. I saw 7 bighorn sheep on my hike. They were right on the trail eating out of a barrel cactus after smashing it open with their horns and then they were eating some cat tail bushes. I was fairly close but minding safety and I was able to stand and video tape and watch them for a good 20 minutes.

Was a great hike for the morning before starting your day. I took my husky, Duke, and it wasn’t too long or too short. Pretty good elevation gains also.

Great scenic views of the city and desert terrain. Not too perfect for a hike or a Harder trail run.

This is NOT PRIVATE PROPERTY....Its has been battle through court and they lost.

Did this trail at 06:00 and it was stunning. As we turned around to come down I got an amazing photo of the sun rising to greet us.

Great trail and there was hardly anyone on the trail, but then it is late August. I did go early in the morning and I was up at the picnic tables in about an hour. It was all uphill except a few places where it leveled out just for a few minutes. Very enjoyable and a good workout.

Its all good.grate early morning hick....

love it.

I started early today to beat the heat. I only encountered other hikers at the north and south extremes, from trail heads to first lookout points. Otherwise, I had it all to myself. Wonderful views over South Palm Springs with the sun coming up.

This is a great hike if you have two cars. We started at the north end with a steep but short (1.5 miles) manageable climb. Then there is some scenic relaxed walking along the the ledge, with great views including big horn sheep sightings. Descend on the south end. Approximately 4.5 miles, which took us about 2 hours of moving time.

Exhausting but so worth it!

A great hike!

Saw many Ovis canadensis and a few Canine domesticus (scoff laws).

Beautiful views over the valley. Dogs are no problem from South trailhead. No dogs allowed at TC trailhead. Only met a few other hikers. Very nice hike.

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.

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

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.

A must when you are in Palm Springs.

I love this hike. A quick workout in the morning. It hot in the afternoon as you are in direct sun.

Basically, it’s a rocky road- kind of boring The best part was watching the planes line up on the runway as they land at the airport.
