The San Jacinto mountain tops are sun kissed every morning with the sun rise. I watch the pink tops turn gold then yellow. There are many trails to hike that can be done all winter long.

Hiked to the peak of San Jacinto. It was a bit like a granite stair master. The weather was perfect and we had a blast bagging the peak!

What a great park! The trails are great for an easy hike, and there are plenty of places along the way for people to stop and rest on the main hiking trails. The area is so beautiful, and the views so spectacular, I'm looking into groups to go up for a camping trip.

The slowly rotating 10 minute tram ride from the hot valley to the 30 degree ascent at 8500 feet was refreshing. The park has easy to long hiking trails.

A great way to cool off during a hot summer day in PS. If you like to hike and would go at least three times during your summer visit buy the summer pass for unlimited use.

My family and I weren't enchanted by the hike, which is fairly difficult, involving a long, paved switchback and rugged terrain. We only made it to one of five "notches," or overlooks, but it was no better than that at the Tramway Station.
