We had a brief afternoon visit there in our travels around Palm Springs. Enjoyed a short hike on the well-marked attractive nature trails in this desert park. The visitor center was clean with interesting exhibits and well-staffed. Would have like to send more time there.

Get maps and information about this beautiful area - 4 hiking trails, 2 are only open from Oct - Dec as they are bighorn sheep habitats. Wonderful 45 minute film on the monument.

Go here. Grab great photos, maps and walk through the outdoor gardens. Very clean public restroom fun activities and lots of little freebies for the kids.
