What you'll do

This hike lasts approximately 5 hours including time to stop to take pics & breaks. We'll be hiking some of the best & most scenic trails in not only Palm Springs, but in all of the Coachella Valley. There will be many incredible viewpoints throughout this hike. It's surprising that one of the best views in Palm Springs, a city that sits beneath a mountain range that towers nearly 11,000 feet can be found from a summit of only 2,220 feet. Not only does Murray Hill offer spectacular views of Palm Springs, the Coachella Valley & the surrounding mountains but is also a challenging hike for it's modest height. Once at the top of Murray Hill we'll have lunch & also you'll be able to enjoy the stunning 360 degree panoramic desert views, perfect for breathtaking photos. We'll see the windmills, the Little San Bernardino Mountains, 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.) We'll also see Indian Canyons, ancestral home of the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians that settled here five thousand years ago.

Carlos

Hi I'm Carlos. I love hiking/trail running & pretty much anything outdoors. I've been hiking in Palm Springs for 6 years & have found what I think are the best hiking trails with some of the best views around. I hike year round & never get tired of it, there is always something new to discover. I hope to share my passion for hiking & nature with you, so you can see all the beauty that the desert has to offer.

What's included

Food
I'll provide 1 granola bar for each hiker.
Drinks
I'll provide enough water for each hiker.
Equipment
I'll provide 1 backpack & 1 hiking pole for each hiker or you can bring your own gear if you want.

Where you'll be

Our hike takes place in south Palm Springs in the Santa Rosa and San Jacinto Mountains National Monument & provides a scenic view to the desert communities of the Coachella Valley. The hike to the summit of Murray Hill, which stands at 2,220 feet is considered one of the best around because the views from the top are among the most spectacular in the desert. You'll see from the desert valley floor below all the way up to beautiful mountain peaks.
