What you'll do

The hike lasts approximately 2 hours including time to stop to take pics & breaks. We'll be hiking on trails in beautiful south Palm Springs in the Santa Rosa & San Jacinto Mountains National Monument in scenic desert terrain. As we hike you'll get a close up look at plants & different types of cacti & enjoy amazing views from the desert valley floor below, all the way up to beautiful mountain peaks. The Peninsular Bighorn Sheep, an endangered species is back in the desert for the winter & hopefully we'll see some or other desert animals. From the trail we'll stop & see the Bob Hope house, the windmills, the Little San Bernardino Mountains that go into the western mountain perimeter of Joshua Tree National Park all to the north, the San Jacinto mountains to the west, Mount San Gorgonio (the tallest mountain in Southern California at 11,501 ft.), Palm Springs and other desert cities of the Coachella Valley. As we head back down we will see Indian Canyons, ancestral home of the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians that settled in the area 5000 years ago. See my other 2 hikes that are longer/more challenging below. If there's a certain date/time you'd prefer to do one of my hikes contact me. Thanks & I hope to hike with you soon.

I'm an avid hiker/runner & love being outdoors exploring the beauty of the desert. I've been lucky enough to see lots of different desert animals & plants close up. The desert is a very beautiful & peaceful place that I never get tired of exploring. I'm always very happy to help others see & appreciate the desert like I do.
