Hiking the Lykken Trail

Another trail I hiked during my recent Palm Springs visit (I crammed a lot into a two night get-away!) was the North Lykken Trail. It’s not on Indian Reservation land so no entry fee required. I didn’t go up the side of the mountain too terribly far, but the view from as far as I got was spectacular! How many trails have you hiked where the view included tennis courts, multi-million dollar homes, palms, and swimming pools?!!

The trail started out relatively mild, but started climbing fast, and fading into nothing recognizable. I ventured off onto a few different “routes” before realizing the error of my ways, turning around and re-routing myself. I’m not sure where the trail eventually leads… the sun was glaring on the sign so I could barely read it, and the only arrow was at the trailhead. One guy did pass me by and kept on going, though. ~SueBee

    It looks like quite warm work.

      It was a comfortable temperature, but once the sun started going down, it turned freezing! The desert has drastic temp shifts.
