Garstin Trail Hike - Palm Springs

Watch video on iPod, iPad, Mid-Def, Hi-Def

Originally we planned to hike the Murray Canyon Trail located on the Agua Caliente Indian Reservations in south Palm Springs, however, it didn't happen. The Indian Reservations opens at 8 AM and we were there at 7:30 AM. Instead of waiting, we found a nearby trail to hike called the Garstin Trail. We're so glad we stumbled on this jewel of a hike!

The Garstin Trail is a moderate hike that's all uphill and has several switch backs. The elevation is close to 1,000 feet. It has beautiful panoramic views of Palm Springs, Cathedral City and east Coachella Valley.

We continued to hike on the trail until we saw Bob Hope's House from a distance (see video). Then we headed back which was all down hill. It can be a little slippery on the dirt trail so we took our time to prevent us from rolling down hill.

This is another good hike we all enjoyed!
