Great views. I enjoyed the informative display and the video. There are opportunities for hiking. I did a little of it but I prefer paved walking paths

Take the cable car to the top of the mountain. Over eight thousand feet up, for some of the most stunning views of Palm Springs and the surrounding areas. The restaurants at the top of the mountain were excellent and not over priced.

Get off the aerial tramway and you are almost immediately on several lovely hikes to various viewpoints over the valley. Spend as much or as little time as you wish. It's gorgeous and much cooler up there.

No reservation is necessary, but the line for the tram will get longer later in the day--I recommend going early/mid-morning (when the tram starts running). You pay a small entrance fee, park your car, and tram to the top... More
