Chris Fraim on the Cactus Spring Trail – 1/30/13
My son Christopher has been visiting from the Bay Area and we’ve been exploring the various trails in the desert. Today, we drove up Highway 74 to the top of the mountain and hiked the Cactus Spring Trail out to the old gypsum mine. One of the most beautiful trails I’ve been on and a great way to get away from everything. We saw one other hiker on the trail today. The trailhead is only a 25 minute drive from Palm Desert.
