When Palm Springs heats up locals head to the hills – in ten minutes the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway will take you through the Chino Canyon to the Mt. San Jacinto where the temperature is usually 15 degrees cooler (30°F). (Take a light sweater!) At the top you’ll find a restaurant where you can enjoy a glass or two. Alternatively self-cater with a picnic. During the day you can take advantage of scenic hiking trails. See the tramway website for opening hours and hiking details. You may also want to visit the San Jacinto page on the State Park website.
Hiking enthusiasts may also want to check out the walking trails at Indian Canyons.
