Murray Hill - Search Nearby - Added by Scott Sichler

A hike with panoramic views of the Palm Springs area.

Murray Hill is the highest point in the surrounding trail system. You can access it from Earl Henderson/Shannon Trail or anyone of the others in the area. It's about 9 miles round-trip and a healthy 2,100 vertical feet gain.

From the top of the Shannon Trail bear right until you reach the Wildhorse Trailhead. Go left at the trailhead. After a mile the trail will climb steeply along the ridge lines. There are picnic tables at the base of Murray Hill if you want to enjoy lunch before heading back down.

Panoramic Views of Palm Springs Area

This hike had panoramic views of the Palm Springs area. It provided beautiful trails through the desert and a good workout with the elevation gain. There are picnic tables at the top.
