I've been coming to Palm Springs for 10 years, and never visited the top of San Jacinto Mountain - that was a mistake. It's beautiful up there, with nice (relatively easy) hiking trails.

Most people look at the park from the top level of the tram ride, and there is a park entrance is at the top of the tram ride, although you can probably access more remote areas elsewhere.30-40 degrees cooler than the valley floor, so dress...More

This is a spectacular activity. Get there early - the line gets long. Also I highly recommend buying your tickets online ahead of time and being there AT LEAST 10-15 minutes before your stated ticket time. Ours was 10:00 am, we got there at 10:02...More

You travel in a little tram up the hill. You see four seasons on the way, and if you are lucky, you can even spot a few nice animals. The minus of this place is that there are literally hundreds of people around you, so...More

Great hiking at the park and views of the valley. The path to and from the station is steep, so be aware of you have trouble walking up inclines. We've been here a couple times now and it's a good place to go hiking.
