My 26 year old daughter and I went to Palm Desert in September when it was still extremely hot. We loved being in the area, but during midday it was impossible for any outdoor activities except for the top of San Jacinto. The tram gets...More
I love this spot up to the mountains, I used to go there to take a break from the heat down in the Valley and enjoy the breath-taking views and multiple haking trail options. Lovely in summer since is quite cool up there and incredible...More

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.
