Valley Vista: Keys View
Keys View isn't a trail, but it is a cool pit stop and a nice break from hiking. Walk up a few stairs and you can see the whole valley from Palm Desert to Indio (home of Coachella) and San Jacinto mountain. This is a great photo op for those who like panoramas or if you really want to get a sense of the vastness of the desert and be further reminded we are but small specks on this earth. There was a good bit of smog the day we went, but you could still see a lot of the valley.
