Great hike with incredible rock structures and views. You can join many hikes at the top. Well marked and slightly challenging at the beginning only. Highly recommend.

This is a great trail and surely one of my favorite local ones. It is an easy/ moderate climb with an elevation gain of roughly 900 feet (275 m). Once at the top you are treated to a panoramic view of the Coachella Valley and...More

This trail gives a great view of the valley...if the sun is out I would recommend in the afternoon with the sun behind you for a great valley view.

This traihead is located at the end or Ramon St. just off Palm Canyon Drive. There is parking for about ten cars so get there early. A early start also helps with the heat. This is a steep well maintained trail with many switchbacks. It...More

Ran near sunrise from downtown hotel to Lykken Trailhead at end of Ramon. Early start was essential due to unusual November heat. Rocky exposed and steep trail so many sections up I just fast hiked. Gets hot fast so take plenty of fluids. Ran north...More

I have had five dogs at one time and I would think twice before taking them on this trail. It's way too easy for a dog to fall or hurt its paws on the rocks. Also, if you do take your dog(s), you should think about doing... More
