After a very interesting drive that takes you up to 2600 feet, you get on to the tram and go up another 6000 feet over a spectacular mountainside. Once up there, you are 30 degrees cooler and with pines and other high altitude flora and...More
What a wonderful way to spend a day. Took the tram up, which is wonderful. We did a 4.2 mile round valley loop hike. It was just perfect. We are not experienced hikers, but are in pretty good shape. This was the perfect hike for...More
It's amazing! The views from up here are stunning. Its a lot cooler up there then on the desert floor but you soon warm up walking around. Do take decent shoes, it's not something I would want to do in flip flops. Just go!
A trip up the Aerial Tramway to San Jacinto Mountain was pretty much the first thing that we did after collecting a hire car and driving out of LA. The cable car ride was interesting but the main event was walking around the large plateau...More

Yes, of course it is..
First one is the trail "Cactus to clouds" - starts right form Palm Springs Museum of art parking lot. This trail is long and steep, 16 miles one way to summit, first ~8 miles are the steepest, till you reach the ranger station after that is much easier.. Hiking on this trail usually starts at night time due to very hot conditions during the day - no shade till you get to ranger station.
If you check on Google this trail, you will find a lot of usefull and detailed info.
There is another hiking trail to summit from Mt Sant Jacinto State park, it is about one hour drive from Palm Springs to get to that trail, park locate on the opposite site of the mountain from Palm Springs, this trail is not so long and not so steep compare to "Cactus to clouds" trail.
