Hiking

Would rate upper end of moderate as the first mile you gain almost 1000 feet in elevation. No easing into this one. Absolutely no shade. Bring plenty of water. I brought 3.5 L and still wished I had another liter. Granted I hiked in the heat of the day (hit around 90 degrees). Overall, great trail that I found challenging. Good cardio workout. 360 degree view from Murray’s peak

First time running this trail. Very rocky and overgrown, I couldn’t really get a run started because of side stepping dead bushes with long gnarly branches reaching onto the trail. Fun run or hike but a bit harder for newbies.

Great trail for a morning hike. Hit it before the sun comes up and you’ll be in the shade to the first summit. Overall a good hike

Running

I ran this trail North to South and back in the second half of March 9.4miles total. It was one of the hardest runs I ever did.

Download the map before you go—not much reception up top. The trail is actually 13 miles if you do the loop; 10 if you just go up and down Dunn Road. Nice view and picnic tables at the top of Dunn Road. From here you go right on the Hahn trail if you choose the loop option. Hahn is a more scenic way to come down, although definitely more of a biker’s trail—narrow, not a lot of flat footing, so be careful with your ankles. Seems like it’d be really fun on a mountain bike! Especially if you have a motor-assist one like some of the folks I saw going up.

As noted below, the first 15 minutes is a strong up, getting to the picnic tables. The “falls” only run during or shortly after a rain. Do not generally expect to see running water. Finally, the parking at the end of Ciello is limited—maybe holds 6-8 cars so plan to go early or mid-week.

It was a lot of fun until I got lost! The trails are kinda hard to follow. It’s good to have a full battery phone to navigate and be prepared for lots of rocky to lots of sandy terrain!

HikingNo shade

My Nike app put the altitude at 1752ft. No shade whatsoever but exactly at midpoint we were able to cool off by the small stream and shade (only part of trail we found shade other than at the beginning) Take lots of water. Beautiful trail. Steepness is totally doable because is gradual.

HikingNo shade

When doing this worthwhile loop, I do think the clockwise direction is the way to go. This way, the steepest parts are taken up-hill. A stronger hike is to include the victor trail as well (great views from above), and do the Palm Canyon trail twice from the confluence of trails (see my track). Also notable is several miles are hiking desert rolling hills. Also one mile or so is sandy wash type trail (i.e., more energy here). Nice views though. Hardly any wildflowers.

Really fun single track desert hike, the scenery is the same as anywhere else in Palm Springs but Murray Hill provides a unique 360 degree vantage point. If you can handle the initial elevation grade for the first mile, the rest of the hike is relatively easy until the final push to the ridge. The top has three square picnic tables to hang out at, below a short rock scramble to the summit. Very cool to sit on the summit and watch incoming planes below you landing at PSO.

This has to be an out and back. It’s beautiful, but there is NO ACCESS to any neighborhoods even though it looks like it on all trails and google maps. You must be able to return the way you came.
