Palm Springs and the Cochella Valley has an abundance of Hiking trails. From easy walking trails to difficult terrain, the outdoor enthusiasts will experience spectacular mountain vistas, waterfalls, natural streams, rocky gorges and unusual rock formations. The pristine desert air mixed with giant palm trees and an alpine wilderness create the perfect setting of natural desert beauty.
Hike the world’s largest fan palm oasis in Palm Canyon, the tranquil and intimate Andreas Canyon , or the secluded and wandering Murray Canyon. Tahquitz Canyon rewards hikers at the end of a moderate hike with a beautiful 40 ft. waterfall.

Right outside Palm Springs and accessed via the Palm Springs tram, this 8500 foot mountain provides a great entry to miles of alpine trails and beautiful trees and granite formations. Typically 30 degrees colder than the valley floor it provides a refreshing atmosphere and magnificent view of the valley below.

This is one heck of a rock! If I was 10 years younger I'd try the 22 mile, 10000 ft climb, Cactus to Clouds (C2C) hike from the base to the top and back down to the tram. If you aren't into that sort of thing, you can just take the tram and enjoy the 20 minute scenic ride, then hike around the top. Remember it's a lot cooler at the top, so dress appropriately.

This is the friend you see everyday from the kitchen, diningroom and livingroom of our house. Through the celestory windows. Its gorgeous. And a fantastic place to go hiking. At our house you'll find a great hiking guide and other information on how to visit the mountains up close.

Biggest damn mountain that rings around the Valley. Not too assuming looking, but has some pretty good hikes and can be a little dangerous for those that don't respect it. Awesome views at the top, and can be up to 30 degrees cooler then the desert floor.
