As a reputable provider of Palm Springs limos, we get dozens of questions about the city. One is “What’s the best hiking trails in Palm Springs?” And believe it or not, our limo service transfers everyone from famous celebrities to tourists to the countless hiking trails in and around town. Whether for a party bus ride after dark, a spa treatment in Rancho Mirage or Temecula wine tours, we can get you there safely and in style. From the beloved Palm Canyon, Joshua Tree National Park, Big Morongo and local gems, – these are our limousine company’s picks for top “Best Hikes in Palm Springs”!
1. Palm Tree Forest Hike
Few places can boast such a natural treasure in town, and even fewer on their main street! Andreas Canyon Trail, located in Palm Canyons on S. Palm Canyon Dr. is by far the most popular hiking destination for limo clients in town. While many travel to Palm Canyon just to hang out by the river and the palm tree forest, the simple 1-mile loop is almost a must for any visitor. Nothing can really compare to the waterfalls, sound of the creek the lush oasis found here. Although Andreas Canyon Trail seems to be the favorite, Murray Canyon Trail is yet another great hike here popular for limos and party buses.
2. Ultimate Desert Hike
Araby Cove is the second-most visited hiking destination for limos in Palm Springs. Known for its magnificent desert beauty, the Araby Trail combines the best of the Mojave- and the Colorado Deserts. Locally known as the hike that leads to Bob Hope’s home, this trail features more than the Bob Hope’s former house. This desert hike has an elevation increase of 800 feet and is a 6-mile tour. Besides the homes of Bob Hope and Steve McQueen, you’ll have great panoramic views of Palm Springs, Cathedral City, Rancho Mirage and the San Jacinto Mountains.
3. Surrounding National Park land
Our own backyard national park, Joshua Tree National Park and the smaller Big Morongo Canyon are two world known destinations where many tourists order their limousines. The 49 Palms Oasis Trail in Joshua Tree is hugely popular, while the roundtrip loop of Big Morongo might be just as good – if not better. Big Morongo Canyon Preserve is one of the most important wildlife habitats in the area, and over 250 species of birds have been recorded in the natural preserve. There are numerous trails here, including a rewarding 3-mile loop. The 3-mile 49 Palms Oasis Trail in Joshua Tree National Park is another hike well worth the sweat. This natural preserve offers a palm tree oasis, rare flora and abundant wildlife.
4. La Quinta- and Rancho Mirage Hidden Gems
As a top rated provider of limousine services in nearby areas such as La Quinta, Desert Hot Springs and Rancho Mirage, we also transfer people to hidden gems in these cities as well. Lake Cahuilla in La Quinta has been called the most beautiful hiking destination by many limousine service clients. Numerous hiking trails can be found by this 130+ acre lake, while the short lake loop always is an easy option. Recently we had Rancho Mirage limo customers have us stop by the Chuckwalla Trailhead on Frank Sinatra Drive for the 2-mile Chuckwalla Loop. This trail has an elevation increase of 400 ft. and offers beautiful views of Rancho Mirage and the Coachella Valley.
5. Mount San Jacinto
One of town’s most popular limo destinations, Palm Springs Aerial Tramway, can be used for a variety of trips. While most limousine clients get a table at Peaks Restaurant, others are brave enough to venture out in the wilderness of Mount Jacinto. Some of the easier trails here include Long Valley Discovery Loop (1 mile), Desert View Loop (1,5 mi.) and the one-mile Wellmans Divide. For a more strenuous hiking experience, try the 12-mile loop to Saddle Junction! Come here for a colder climate, pine tree forests, mountain creeks and breathtaking views of the Coachella Valley.
