Desert Hot Springs: Swiss Canyon Trail
This flat out-and-back trail begins on the northeast edge of town and meanders through a quiet canyon studded with boulders and cacti. A country club development is slated to be built near the trailhead, but fences clearly delineate areas of construction. Bring a companion and plenty of water. While a coat and hat might be necessary in winter, be mindful that Desert Hot Springs hits the triple digits in summer and early fall. Avoid hiking during these months, or go very early in the morning to avoid the crushing heat. Outstanding Features: views of Palm Springs and surrounding mountains; desert vegetation; rock formations, solitude.
