I provide water, a snack bar and a backpack for each hiker. For centuries the Cahuilla Indians hiked to some of these hill tops to send smoke signals to nearby tribes that they traded with. The hike is on trails known mainly by locals & is on land adjacent to the Santa Rosa & San Jacinto Mountains National Monument on a network of some of the best hiking trails in Palm Springs. You'll enjoy Palm Springs hiking at it's best with lots of scenic views of the Coachella Valley & a hike into a hidden Palm tree oasis. I know these trails well & the most scenic viewpoints along the way to enjoy some of the best views of Palm Springs & far beyond. You'll see desert vegetation close up and you'll see from the desert valley floor all the way up to beautiful nearby mountain peaks, while getting in some great exercise. The endangered Peninsular Bighorn Sheep come down to the desert to give birth during the winter, so if you're here then hopefully we'll see some.

Itinerary Details

Please see Additional Information section for important physical requirements & trail info before booking.
The hike lasts approx 3 hours with time to stop to take pics & breaks. Hike on some of the best Palm Springs hiking trails through scenic desert terrain. As we hike we'll have amazing views of the desert below all the way up to the mountains that overlook Palm Springs.

We'll stop & see the very unique Bob Hope house from the top of Hope Overlook (a hill at 1,371 ft. & the highest point on the hike) & enjoy beautiful 360 degree views, perfect for scenic photos.

We'll see the windmills, Joshua Tree National Park, the San Jacinto Mtns, Mt San Gorgonio (the tallest mtn. in So Cal at 11,503 ft.), Palm Springs and other cities that make up the Coachella Valley. After our time at the top we'll head downhill into a small Palm tree oasis that's growing in a canyon (not in Indian Canyons). Depending on the time of year hopefully we'll see some endangered Peninsular Bighorn Sheep that come down from the nearby mountains to give birth.
