I'm only mentioning the loose rocks because it only takes one little slip and fall, a bounce down on the ankle in an awkward position, and then a trip to the orthopedist for a surgery date. This is the voice of experience talking (my Waterloo...More

This is a great trail and surely one of my favorite local ones. It is an easy/ moderate climb with an elevation gain of roughly 900 feet (275 m). Once at the top you are treated to a panoramic view of the Coachella Valley and...More

This trail gives a great view of the valley...if the sun is out I would recommend in the afternoon with the sun behind you for a great valley view.

This traihead is located at the end or Ramon St. just off Palm Canyon Drive. There is parking for about ten cars so get there early. A early start also helps with the heat. This is a steep well maintained trail with many switchbacks. It...More

This hike will get your heart pounding and breathing heavy, but the panoramic views of Palm Springs is so worth the walk.

I have had five dogs at one time and I would think twice before taking them on this trail. It's way too easy for a dog to fall or hurt its paws on the rocks. Also, if you do take your dog(s), you should think about doing... More
