Hike Palm Springs With Amazing Views

Hike Palm Springs With Amazing Views

star-5
I provide water, a snack, a backpack & a hiking pole for each hiker. We'll be hiking in the Santa Rosa & San Jacinto Mountains National Monument on Native American land on some the best trails in the area. I know these trails very well and the best lookout points along the way to enjoy some of the most beautiful views of the Palm Springs desert & far beyond. 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 the very unique Bob Hope house, Mount San Gorgonio (the tallest mountain in So Cal), Indian Canyons & other points of interest. During the winter I've seen the endangered Peninsular Bighorn Sheep in the area. There will be lots of opportunities for taking beautiful scenic photos during the hike. For a certain date/time not shown ask me.
