“Good intro to the area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

The visitor center is wonderful in explaining the desert, the Palm Springs history and impact. Inside exhibits and outside nature trails introduce you to what you'll see on the many trails. Full range of trails from short easy, to challenging.

Love the area for their hiking trails and the desert vegetation.This is a wonderful opportunity to hike a wide variety of trails and take in the quiet and some breathtaking views. Wear sturdy shoes,and always carry sun protection and enough water.

“Great hiking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

I hadn't been to Palm Springs in years. Had no idea there were so many places to hike. The visitor center is very helpful, will give suggestions on hikes, depending on what you want and level of fitness that you're in. There is a donation box there, which I gladly contributed to.

“I live there!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

It is the most wonderful place to live! The air is crisp and the view couldn't be better with colorful plants all around and desert noises surrounding you. Peaceful atmosphere any time of the year!
