The top tourist attraction in the Coachella Valley. A "must see" when visiting Palm Springs.

Great views of the city and a cool off in the summer or a wintery excursion in the fall and winter.

Ride from the desert to the mountain top for lunch and/or hiking. Or just take in the views.
Ride the tram for an incredible view of the entire valley. Then have a stroll or hike on the trails at the top. The restaurant is a nice finish for a drink or snack.
