Scott Scott is a great guide. His was one of the best hikes we have ever been on. He is knowledgeable, fun, and a good conversationalist. We would definitely recommend a hiking tour with Scott.

Hi Susan (s)!
Thanks for the kind words, what a great morning in the cool, mountain air of the forest. We're so fortunate to have the Palm Springs Aerial tram to escape to during the hotter months.
I enjoyed getting to know both of you and showing you one of my favorite hikes in the San Jacinto state park.
Hope to have the opportunity again, (PS, photos are on the way!).

Whenever we are in Palm Springs we always connect with Scott to set up a hike. On our most recent trip I took my daughter for the first time and she was mesmerized by the beauty of the hike, add this to Scott's knowledge of the area and you have a trip to remember. Scott is not only a great guide, he is a great guy who's number 1 goal is to help you make a memory. Look forward to seeing him again soon!

Hi Rod,
It's always a pleasure to spend some "trail-time" with you. What a great way to spend quality time with your daughter, it was fun getting wet in the pools to cool off too!
And, having a healthy organic meal at our favorite spot is a great added bonus.
Look forward to the next time, all the best to you!

Excellent hike through Murray Canyon and the 7 Sisters. Our guide Scott was pleasant and supportive as well as a fund of information about the desert plants and animals. My wife and I enjoyed our trip and were pleased to receive a slide show of the hike on our return home.

Thanks for the kind comments, it was a pleasure taking the 2 of you to Murray Canyon.
You are both easy going, genuine people who really appreciate the beauty of a great wilderness setting, and the importance of preserving it as well!

A great gauge as to whether a tour or other activity is worthwhile is asking yourself afterwards whether you would go again. We went boulder scrambling in Indian Canyon with Scott in March, 2012 and we were back again to do two different hikes with him this March. This time we hiked the Whitewater Canyon Preserve and Joshua Tree. Both days were unseasonably cool, but we really enjoyed both very different hikes. Whitewater is closer to Palm Springs and less travelled with great changes in elevation. Joshua Tree was a considerable drive from Palm Springs, obviously more popular with tourists, but simply a must see for the remarkable landscape. These trips attract people who enjoy the outdoors, want some exercise, and have some sense of adventure. Half the fun is meeting other hikers and sharing the experience, so don't shy away from joining others. Thanks again Scott!

Thanks,
It was a pleasure to spend some more great times on the trail with you two.
I appreciate you coming back for more! Glad we were able to experience a couple other beautiful wilderness locations around Palm Springs, even it it was a bit cool & breezy, (but your from Canada, so not big deal, right!).
Be well,
Scott

My husband and I hiked with Scott last weekend at Indian Canyon. He led us off-trail to do some "rock-scrambling". Just the right combo of some challenging moments without ever being in a situation that was beyond our abilities. The views were breathtaking.
Scott is quite knowledgeable about the area and his enthusiasm is contagious.
We will absolutely be hiking with Scott again when we return to the area -- and recommend that you do the same!

Hi Diane,
Thanks for the comments, it was great taking the 2 of you out, it's always great when we have folks like you that are up for a fun, moderately challenging adventure!
I hope we get another chance to take you to other intriguing outdoor area here in the Palm Springs desert!
