We offer many easy, moderate or strenuous hikes each week. Our hikes are led by experienced, volunteer, hike leaders. From the desert trails to the mountains, you will discover a variety of great hikes. In addition to hiking, monthly socials and yearly outings are held. Hiking in the Palm Springs area is fun and healthy!!!  Come join us!!!

You should familiarize yourself with the 10 Essentials of Hiking before heading out on any trails. We credit REI for this great article that applies to hiking everywhere.  "Be Prepared", applies to more than the Scouts!  Once you are prepared, sign up for some of our hikes.
