Hikers come from all over the world to hike the hundreds of mountain trails in and around the Palm Springs desert area.
One of the most popular trails, the South Lykken Trail, is located just steps from the 55+ Parkview Mobile Estates mobile home park, near downtown Palm Springs. I just sold a home here, last week, and hadn’t noticed this trail before. While waiting for my clients to arrive, to give them their new keys, I took a short walk, from their backyard, and stumbled upon this trail and thought I would share it here.
What appears to be a Palm Tree oasis, at the base of the mountains, is Parkview Mobile Estate (see photo above).
Nearly every 55+ community, here in the desert, offers a hiking club. So, if you’re an active adult who loves to hike, like I do, you’ll have plenty of like-minded individuals and groups to hike with. (I suggest you always hike in a group or with another hiker. The desert seems to claim the life of at least one hiker every year, so be careful and follow all the rules. Dehydration can happen much faster than you think. Join a hiking group and increase your odds of survival, and fun.)
