Easy walk, although incline can be difficult for some. Path has railing and is a short distance to bench to rest if needed. Rest of pathway is less of an incline and quite easy. Well worth the short drive for breathing views.

Well worth the few extra mile to have a panoramic view of the entire Coachella Valley. Usually a bit hazy or blowing dust but on a clear days it is an awesome view.

This is a lookout point and not a hike. It has a very nice area to walk around and get different vantage points for outstanding views. There is parking at the lookout. It was a pretty quick stop for us but glad we did it.

We arrived mid morning and the view was amazing. I’ve heard that it can be overcast and hazy, so we really were glad for the view. This is about a 10 minute drive off the main road, but well worth it. There is limited parking...More
