The South Lykken Trail

In 1972 the Skyline Trail was renamed the Lykken Trail in honor of Carl Lykken, a Palm Springs pioneer and the town’s first postmaster. The magnificent desert view trail travels along the San Jacinto Mountains above Palm Springs, roughly following Palm Canyon Drive. The views of Palm Springs and the valley stretching towards the eastern horizon are awesome as you negotiate through the rocky terrain, accented in the spring with yellow blooming brittle bush and flowering cactus.
