South Lykken Trail

Area Status: Open
This area is Open

South Lykken Trail – 4.4 miles, elevation change of 1,004 feet, strenuous.

The north end of the trail starts at the west end of Mesquite Road, just south of downtown Palm Springs off South Palm Canyon Drive.  However, no parking is available at this location.  Plan on parking near the turnoff from South Palm Canyon Drive and walk along the road to the trailhead.  The south end of the trail begins on South Palm Canyon Drive.  Follow South Palm Canyon Drive toward the Indian Canyons, and park on the street where the road narrows from four lanes to two.  Hike westerly along a dirt road adjacent to a residential development before beginning the ascent on the trail.
