We start at the cathedral city cove and hike up, the views are breathtaking and pictures don't do it justice, it feels like the Wild West up there on cool and cloudy days is when I'd recommend taking this trail as it will be amazing experience. Starting from the cove is honestly hard as rain has washed out half the trail and your walking mostly on bare rock of the mountain so it's not really a beginner trail, very steep parts on the way up but getting to the top is 100% worth it. Many beautiful views really capture the beauty of the Coachella valley desert and about 3-4 miles up you'll find the earth moving vehicles Mike Dunn abandoned while trying to make the road. Highly recommend and please take a lot of water as 1.5 liters wasn't enough for me and we only hike it on cloudy days.

We thought this would be a simple hike along a dirt road but found several off shoot trails that took us further into the mountain including a deep canyon. Our most enjoyable hike of the trip. Take lots of water and of course morning is best!

Always enjoyable. Some steep bits, but worth the effort. Very well-trafficked and sociable.

Love this trail. The best in the desert for hikers seeking a decent vertical climb with great views of the Valley and amenable to dogs!

Incredible hike! Must go in morning time and prep for hot weather. View at the top is amazing and makes the strenuous hike up the mountain worth it.

The trailhead at the north end is really inconspicuous; marked only by a small vacant piece of flat dirt next to a large house compound. The beginning is a straight up scramble for about a quarter mile; perfect to get your blood moving. The cross-over at the muse trail is a little confusing - several intersecting paths that don't show on the map- so stick to the well worn trail until you come to the picnic benches and signs. The east spur from the picnic benches is not well used and is tricky for trail-finding, so I recommend using the west (up hill) track which is well worn and marked. Overall this is a great rout for a short hike.
