Hiking & Biking


Palm Springs, Joshua Tree National Park and Idyllwild host 22 hiking trails where you can bond with nature, get a good workout and on the Araby Trail, even see Bob Hope’s house! If it’s too hot, The Palm Springs Aerial Tramway whisks (actually it’s about a 10-minute ride to an elevation of 8,516 feet) you up to Mt. San Jacinto State Park. There you can access about 54 miles of hiking trails located within the 14,000 acre Mt. San Jacinto Wilderness area.

The Coachella Valley and its environs provide an awe-inspiring experience you will always remember!

The Department of Community Services provides cyclists with trail maps of five in-town bike routes:

  • Citywide Tour

    A 13-mile ride around the town through an upscale residential district, golf courses and country clubs is a good way to get a feel for the city.

  • Civic Center Tour

    This 5-1/2-mile loop passes the Palm Springs Mall, the Civic Center and the Sunrise Plaza recreation complex.

  • Tahquitz Bikeway

    This 3-mile loop provides “back door” access to popular shops, restaurants and the Desert Art Museum but avoids the bumper-to-bumper traffic on Palm Canyon Drive.

  • Canyon Country Club Tour

    A 4-1/2 mile whirlwind on the south side of Palm Springs. Be prepared to stop for golf carts!

  • Deepwell Tour

    A 3-1/2-mile ride through older, picturesque, palm-lined residential streets.
