Like most of visitors we arrived to the San Jacinto Mountain by Aerial Tramway. It was snow there but sunny and windless, ideal weather for a little hike. There are hiking trails close to the tramway station with several lookout points with amazing views to...More

Be prepared for the temperature drop at the tram drop off point. It was 20-30 degrees cooler, with snow surrounding, so we didn't leave the lookout. Take a jacket and maybe some boots if you want to venture about.

Very nice place for nature lovers. You get up there by Palm Springs tram. You can walk around, some people were going up with sledge so lots of fun for kids as well. Worth going.

This is the mountain that the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway brings you to. We did some walking around, but with the snow we weren't prepared to do any extensive hiking. Would love to go back when there's not snow and explore more of the area.

Besides the view and the terrific weather temperature difference from the valley floor, the hiking trails are marvelous. Several for varying abilities - a easy one that is mostly paved.

Hello, late reply oops. The tram has been closed due to road damage from Feb 14, 2019. Hwy 247 is also closed for another 2 months. There is a ton of snow on the mountain.
