Easy to moderate hike that can be combined with other trails.

This is a short but sweet trail close to the Araby and Garstin Trails. Great views of Palm Springs and the San Jacinto Mountains. Parking area is in the wash off of Araby street on the left side. From the wash, walk west about a quarter of a mile and turn left. You will see a sign for Palm Springs Trail. Switchbacks lead up to signs for the Shannon Trail that goes up to the top of the hill. You head back down when you reach the top or enjoy some more hiking on the other area trails.

Pack List

  • Carry plenty of water even in Winter.
  • Pack extra layers as the weather can change rapidly. Once the sun goes down the temperature will drop. I keep a space blanket in my pack just in case.
  • A wide brim hat can help keep you cool.
  • Include tweezers with your first aid kit in case you get too close to cactus.
  • Check weather conditions before setting out. Summers are extremely hot. Araby Drive is subject to flooding and can be closed.
