MOUN­TAIN HIGH

donna hay - - NATURAL BEAUTY -

The best way to ex­plore Palm Springs starts in the skies. The 10-minute jour­ney on the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway takes you to a height of 8,200ft, from the dry desert foothills up into the lush alpine wilder­ness of the Mt San Jac­into State Park. At the peak, you’ll fifind a na­ture re­serve that boasts 85km of hik­ing trails and in­cred­i­ble views over the Coachella Val­ley. If you’re just af­ter a quick visit, fol­low the signs around a 2km loop to dis­cover the serene moun­tain mead­ows and stun­ning panora­mas of the desert be­low (pstramway.com).
