About Event

Grab your hiking poles and join our Friends’ volunteer docent, on the Frank Bogert Trail. This urban hike begins with a few rolling hills, a steep ascent with some switchbacks and levels out as you near the Whitehorse intersection. Once you reach the top, there are sweeping vistas of the Coachella Valley, Mount San Jacinto, the Santa Rosa mountains, and Little San Bernadino mountains. Along the way you will learn about the National Monument, some of the colorful local history of Palm Springs. This 3.5-mile hike is rated strenuous with an elevation gain of 700 feet. Sorry no dogs are allowed. Bring 2 liters of water, snacks, wear closed-toed shoes, sun hat and sunscreen.

RSVP is required and you must bring your ticket with you for check-in at 8:45 AM. Space is limited. Ticket reservations begin 14 days prior to the event. A suggested tax-deductible donation of $5.00 per person is appreciated and encouraged to support our volunteer programs. For more information contact the Visitor Center at 760-862-9984.

We will meet at the trailhead located off Bogert Trail and Andreas Hills Drive. UTM coordinates: 33.765914, -116.524946
