Route Description for Palm Springs Museum and North Lykken Trail
The Palm Springs Museum and North Lykken Trail is a fun, moderately challenging hike in Palm Springs, California. Setting out from the museum, you’ll meander through private property, but don’t worry; the owners and local officials have worked together to create an accessible path for the public. However, it’s essential to stay on the designated track; veering off will result in you trespassing on private property and potentially ruining this hike for others.
Some side trails may cause confusion. Therefore, it’s a good idea to download a GPS before heading out. The initial section might be technical and tricky to navigate, so be prepared for a heart burner and to be extra cautious. But you can expect to reach rewarding views of the valley backed by a picturesque mountainscape!
Some hikers prefer to loop back to the museum along the street instead of turning around and returning the way they came once they've reached the end.
