The Clara Burgess Trail

This trail takes you to the top of Murray Hill with a spectacular 360 degree view of the Coachella Valley and Little San Bernardino Mountains. The trail can be reached by equestrians and hikers via the Wildhorse Trail (W) or from the top of the Eagle Canyon Trail (E). To reach the Wildhorse Trail you can follow the directions for the Garstin Trail and follow the fork to the right down into the valley seen from the top of the Garstin. From there just follow the Trailhead signs that lead you to the Wildhorse, and then the Clara Burgess Trail. This is one very rewarding hike as you will have a beautiful view of the Coachella Valley from the top of Murray Hill.

The Murray Hill (Peak) Loop

This loop has a few variations at it’s lower altitudes, but only one route to the top of Murray Hill. Murray Hill boasts a spectacular 360 degree view of the Coachella Valley and Little San Bernardino Mountains. The Clara Burgess Trail is the sole route to the top. Variations to Clara include the Wildhorse Trail (west), the Fern Canyon Trail (north) and at the top of Eagle Canyon Trail (south).In my hike, I took various Goat Trails to Eagle Canyon Trail, then up Clara Burgess and over and down on Wildhorse Trail, looping back on Goat Trails.
