Santa Rosa Mountains And San Jacinto National Monument Reviews & Ratings
A must visit if you're in Palm Springs. Bring a little backpack with some water and food and go for a hike. The tram ride up the mountain is fantastic. If you're looking for the best deal take the tram ride at 3:30 and purchase the tram ride and dinner for $36. The dinners pretty good. And the views up there are outstanding.
Beautiful and well kept. Be prepared to hike, but even short walks reveal beautiful nature and history
Beautiful water and views everywhere you look everyone treated as great the locals are super friendly we had an awesome time looking forward to going back again soon
We liked it, not only because we had to rest, but because our rest was soothing and peaceful. Walking around, we noticed that the place is well kept and maintained. Thank you 👍
Lots of pretty stuff to see here. San Jacinto peak makes an impressive backdrop in photos. Trails nicely maintained. Be sure to get a permit down in Idyllwild before heading up to the trailhead as a Ranger was out checking paperwork when we were there--so we had to drive back to the closed Ranger Station where the paperwork permits are kept outside. Wonder why they don't just put the permits at the trailheads?
