A hike on San Jacinto is perhaps the nicest way to get back to nature after funky Palm Springs. We hopped on the impressive tram and enjoyed the view of the Coachella Valley. The tram rotates during the 10 minute ride to provide both a bird's eye view of the mountain geology and the valley view. The fee for the tram is reasonable and they discount children and seniors. It snowed the night before and our hike around the easy and lovely Desert View trail included the scent of Jeffrey pines, expansive views of the valley, and beautiful views of the mountain area. The ramp down is steep but paved and the trail is mostly flat.
We enjoyed the sunset from both the restaurant and bar and returned on the late tram on time to see the moon come up over the lights in the valley. Wonderful day - highly recommended if you love nature.
