Hike a portion of the famed Pacific Crest Trail on this challenging route set against the backdrop of Mount San Jacinto. Parking is limited and starts on Snow Creek Road; from there, follow the northbound path, which climbs into the high summits of the San Jacinto Wilderness Area. Though you can continue all the way to the Palm Springs Mountain Station (where you’ll take the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway back down and will need a ride waiting), most hikers climb for 2-3 hours then turn back.
This trail is only recommended for experienced hikers who are prepared for overnight camping and steep, harsh terrain. Dogs are allowed on some portions of the Pacific Crest Trail (such as San Jacinto State Park).
The Pacific Crest Trail Association has a lot more information about traveling the Trail with your dogs; be sure to check it out before attempting any part of this trail.
