Hike Palm Springs Half Day with the Best Views

Hike Palm Springs Half Day with the Best Views

star-5
I provide water, a snack, a backpack & a hiking pole for each hiker. The hike to the summit of Murray Hill is considered one of the best around because the views from the top are among the most spectacular in the desert. We'll be hiking in the Santa Rosa & San Jacinto Mountains National Monument on some the best trails in Palm Springs. You'll be able to see desert vegetation/plants & cacti close up as we hike along the trails. You'll see from the desert valley floor below all the way up to beautiful mountain peaks, all while getting in some great exercise. I'll point out interesting landmarks along the way, like Mount San Gorgonio (the tallest mountain in So Cal), Indian Canyons & other points of interest. Now that it's winter the endangered Peninsular Bighorn Sheep have returned so maybe we'll see some, I've seen them in this area before. There will be lots of opportunities for taking beautiful scenic photos during the hike.
