From the Top of San Jacinto
Take the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway to the top of San Jacinto Mountain for a completely different vacation experience. This photo is from the tramway deck, near the restaurants and bar at the top.The views of the desert at every turn are just amazing. There are hikes and beautiful views for all skill levels. This photo was taken about a mile from the tram station.The hiking is beautiful in the fall. This photo (at about 9,700 feet elevation) was taken in August, about 3.5 miles from the Palm Springs tramway station top. Check the weather in the wintertime -- you might get to play in the snow before you return to your Palm Springs vacation pool!
