Hiking and so much more

What about during the summer when it is so hot, where can I hike then? Well, you can ride the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway and enjoy many wonderful hikes up there, or you can make the short drive to Idyllwild and enjoy some beautiful hikes. Sound good? Yes?

Hiking In Palm Springs Updates

If you come across a trail that is no longer open, or the parking area has changed, or anything that hikers would need to know we need your help to keep the website updated. You can email us here and we will make any necessary changes.

Please use caution hikers! Hiking in and around Palm Springs can be very dangerous. Just because it is a desert doesn’t mean it will not get cold in the winter, and it definitely gets very hot in the summer. I recommend that you don’t hike in the area in the summer unless you are a very experienced hiker and you have the proper equipment and lots of water. Wear proper clothing, have proper equipment and follow these hiking tips or you may pay with your life. Always carry more water than you think you will need, and don’t wander off the established trails.
