Especially in the Palm Springs summer, you want to head up the Tram to Mt. San Jacinto where it's at least 20 degrees cooler. The tram ride is an experience by itself -- the car slowly rotates. The Mountain Station offers a restaurant and a...More

The tram trip is beautiful, I enjoyed the geology of the rocks. Off season lack of crowds was a plus.

Well worth the time and money to visit this park. The tramway is fun and once you get to the top the views are spectacular. We spent a few hours doing the hike to the various viewpoints. Highly reccommend this park.

Going from the base up to about 9000' above sea level is a fun experience on the tram. But once you are up there it is like you were just transported into another time. Gone are the Ubers and taxis. The hot CA temperature has...More

Sorry we saved this hike for our last morning in Palm Springs. I would have stayed a lot longer to enjoy the views, cool air, birds, and fresh air. The tram was nice but so loud with excited hikers that we missed the guided talk...More

Take the tram early. I suggest you arrive no later than 7am park in area A and wait in line. Trams run every 15 minutes after 8am both ways. NO CELL SERVICE except at the top 10,800 ft. The hike should take about 3-4 hours...More
