Eric Baecht of the Coachella Valley Hiking Club and myself will be leading this hike.  If you don't have a Summer Pass for the Tram, you will need to buy your ticket.  Tickets are $23.95 or $21.95 for seniors (62+).  Tram website is here:

First, Eric will be leading us "off trail" for a 3-mile exploratory hike which will include rock scrambling.  We will pass San Jacinto Lupine and other interesting plants:
 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Then I will lead us on the Desert View Trail (1.5 miles) to see the gorgeous views of the Coachella Valley:

    What a great hike; thanks Sylvia and Steve for organizing this. As out-of-towners, we were planning on hiking up on the mountain on our own, but it was great to have a leader who could show us all the great views and point out the native flora and fauna.

    Sylvia and Eric, thanks again for organizing and leading the hike to Shangri-La. The scenery was great and I enjoyed the conversations with the fellow hikers.
