My wife, grown daughter and i took the tramway to the top of Mt San Jacinto. The views are spectacular, even for someone like me who's afraid od heights. Be aware the temperature is about 30 degees cooler than the valley. It was around 50...More
It was very cloudy, so we had no views down which was to bad. Do not go if there is no vision. It is a nice and quiet place. If you want to hike more then just a couple of miles get a permit.

First one is the trail "Cactus to clouds" - starts right form Palm Springs Museum of art parking lot. This trail is long and steep, 16 miles one way to summit, first ~8 miles are the steepest, till you reach the ranger station after that is much easier.. Hiking on this trail usually starts at night time due to very hot conditions during the day - no shade till you get to ranger station.
If you check on Google this trail, you will find a lot of usefull and detailed info.
There is another hiking trail to summit from Mt Sant Jacinto State park, it is about one hour drive from Palm Springs to get to that trail, park locate on the opposite site of the mountain from Palm Springs, this trail is not so long and not so steep compare to "Cactus to clouds" trail.
