Description

Added by Scott Sichler

A hike with panoramic views of the Palm Springs area.

Murray Hill is the highest point in the surrounding trail system. You can access it from Earl Henderson/Shannon Trail or anyone of the others in the area. It's about 9 miles round-trip and a healthy 2,100 vertical feet gain.

From the top of the Shannon Trail bear right until you reach the Wildhorse Trailhead. Go left at the trailhead. After a mile the trail will climb steeply along the ridge lines. There are picnic tables at the base of Murray Hill if you want to enjoy lunch before heading back down.
