HIKING IN GREATER PALM SPRINGS

Hiking in Greater Palm Springs hits all the high notes — serenity, scenery, and fitness — and there's no better way to explore the natural beauty and wonder of the oasis than on foot. Outdoor enthusiasts can choose from dozens of hiking trails that crisscross all types of terrain, from wide-open sandy spaces spotted with cacti and succulents to twisted canyons encircled by fantastic rock formations to lush palm tree oases sheltering trickling streams. You can even venture to the upper elevations of the Santa Rosa and San Jacinto mountains, where walks through woodlands and wildflower-filled meadows await.

With such a diverse landscape, there's truly an expedition for everyone: Families can enjoy the fresh air and spy cottontail rabbits, bobcats, and more than 200 species of bird in their natural wetland habitat at Big Morongo Canyon Preserve , while more experienced explorers can journey all the way to the summit of Mount San Jacinto on the San Jacinto Peak trail . And if you're looking for the perfect Instagram-worthy trek, we have plenty, whether it's from the top of Murray Hill looking out across Greater Palm Springs or while skirting the mountainside in the middle of a super-bloom. Regardless of which journey you take, you'll find it's easy to embrace the outdoors in Greater Palm Springs, where wildlife, wellness, and wonder collide.

Greater Palm Springs Hiking Safety Tips

With more than 300 days of sunshine each year, many hikers (understandably) can't wait to soak up some rays on their outdoor adventures, but be sure to pack plenty of sunscreen and water — 2 liters minimum. Once half your water is gone, it's time to turn back. If you spy a majestic bighorn sheep or other wildlife, observe from a safe distance, and do not leave valuables in your vehicle.

TENNIS & PICKLEBALL IN GREATER PALM SPRINGS

Besides being known as a top golf destination, Greater Palm Springs is a tennis utopia. In fact, the sport's history here dates back to at least the 1930s, when the area's first racquet clubs opened, drawing Hollywood celebrities who loved the idea of playing a little tennis before mingling over martinis by the pool. And with pickleball, a fun blend of badminton, ping-pong, and tennis, becoming a favorite way to chill in the oasis, you'll find plenty of places to practice your overhead volley and get a few rallies in before happy hour rolls around.
