  • All participants should be moderately fit & healthy, since the hike is about 3.5 miles long with an elevation gain/loss of 1000 feet & sections of trail that are rocky & uneven. The hike usually lasts about 3 hours with most hike clients, but I've done it in as little 2.5 hours with experienced/fit people and it has taken close to 4 hours with less experienced/fit people. I will only go the pace of the slowest person for their safety & comfort. Please wear sturdy shoes with good tread (no sandals) & dress for the weather forecast so you'll be comfortable. Please no live posting to social media while we're hiking, it slows things down. There are no restrooms here, but I carry restroom supplies. Also no dogs are allowed on the trails.

Fun Palm Springs Hike
, Dec 2021
Super fun hike with great views. Carlos was a wonderful guide and is very knowledgeable about the terrain, flora and history of the area. I was visiting Palm Springs and wanted to do a hike, but not alone for safety reasons, so this turned out to be a good fit. Thanks Carlos for a fun morning.

It turned out I was fit enough for only half the hike. Luckily I was the only client, so thete wasn't an issue cutting it short. Carlos was kind enough to find another shorter, flatter walk for me.

Carlos was prepared personable and knowledgeable. He knew the names of many plants and how they were used by Native Americans. He saw big horn sheep and was able to show them to us. He offered to take pictures and had great ideas about where the best views and pictures were to be had. I would highly recommend a guided hike
