Beautiful view over Palm Springs and the Coachella Valley. The prominence of the mountains from this vantage is stunning. Think, Palm Springs is at ~500 ft above sea level, and Mt. San Jacinto tops out at 10,834 feet...

Short Walk: 0.2 miles

Family Friendly: A short, paved trail.

Gem Type: Viewpoint

Got there for sunrise. Freezing cold (30F) plus high winds. Sheltered myself from wind while I waited for the sunrise for 30 min. Beautiful sunrise.
