The hike lasts approximately 2 hours including time to stop to take pics & breaks. We'll be hiking on some beautiful trails in south Palm Springs in a scenic desert landscape. These trails have amazing views of the desert valley below all the way up to amazing mountain peaks.
From the trail we'll stop & see the very unique Bob Hope house, the windmills, the Little San Bernardino Mountains & the mountain perimeter of Joshua Tree all to the north, the San Jacinto Mountains to the west, Mount San Gorgonio (the tallest mountain in Southern California at 11,501 ft.) and beautiful views of Palm Springs and other desert cities that make up the Coachella Valley & far beyond.
As we head back down we will see Indian Canyons in the distance, ancestral home of the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians that settled in the area 5 thousand years ago. Hopefully we'll see some Peninsular Bighorn Sheep, an endangered species or other desert animals as we hike.
