What you'll do

We'll enjoy appropriately socially-distanced & healthy exercise among the desert's native plants, cacti, and animals. And we'll make it simple, safe & fun! We'll guide you on a hike along one of the best local trails in Palm Springs. We'll keep ourselves properly spaced apart between hikers, and we'll tailor our hike to the fitness level and experience of the group. (Yes, face masks will be required.) You'll acquire a new appreciation for Palm Springs as we gain a bit of elevation and see the whole Coachella Valley spread out before us. We've hiked all of the local trails many times, and we know which ones are the best when it comes to amazing views, easy access, and that iconic desert experience. And we'll take plenty of photos and videos along the way. So join us and discover why there's more to love about Palm Springs than just martinis and that cool mid-century vibe. (By the way, if you don't see a hike already scheduled for a date that works from you, send us a note and we can see if we're available that day!)
Other things to note
Please make sure to wear sunscreen, sturdy sneakers or hiking shoes, and sunglasses. And bringing plenty of water is a must. A camera, hat, and binoculars if you have them are also recommended. And please note that recently enacted City of Palm Springs rules now prohibit dogs on the trails.

Where you'll be

We'll hike one of the best local trails in Palm Springs that, after lots of experience, we've rated as the best of the best. It's particularly great for soaking up the serenity of the desert landscape and drinking in some spectacular panoramic views. We'll be walking among the diverse cacti and other native plants. And if we're lucky, we may even spot bighorn sheep along the way!

Rated 4.99 out of 5 from 118 reviews.

Great way to start your morning in Palm Springs! Informative, beautiful views, great work out, and stimulating conversation. We hiked, made new friends, and learned interesting facts about Palm Springs!

Meetup & communication were excellent with no issues. GPS the address as noted. David & Rene both were fantastic guides. Highly recommend a guided hike versus on your own. Their knowledge of the mountains ensures you seeing so much more & in a SAFE way. Both were able to pace our group according to skill levels so we all enjoyed the hike.

This is a great experience although because of personal limitations I wasn't able to partake in the whole activity. David was quick to understand and offered a full refund (although I did not request this as it was completely not of his doing) and alternative ideas for a hike. He also took a nice amount of time to talk to us about other activities and places to see as it was our first day in the area. Also sent us a nice list of restaurants that ended up being really useful.

What a wonderful hike! We learned a lot about Palm Springs and wish we did this earlier during our stay as we got some great food and activity recommendations from David and Renee. Looking forward to coming back and doing another hike !

My 20 year old daughter and I wanted to get out and hike in the mountains and enjoy what Palm Springs had to offer. We really enjoyed our hike with David and Rene! They knew so much about the area, the history, the nature and life in PS. They gave us great recs for restaurants--we loved 533 Fusion and never would've discovered it or the beauty of the desert without their sage guidance. They even took a ton of photos and shared them after! I really appreciate that these two guys know so much and take the time to share it with their hikers!! Thank you for the awesome time!
