Murray Hill Professional Review and Guide

"Prominent from many directions, the pyramid-shaped Murray Hill offers panoramic views across the southern Santa Rosa Mountains. It is best climbed on a clear, cool day. Its rather diminutive name belies the fact that Murray Hill is a steep and strenuous peak that challenges and rewards the intrepid explorer. Murray Hill is named for the Scottish rancher, Welwood Murray, who founded the Palm Springs Hotel in 1887 and drew attention to the area as a spa and resort. Murray Hill can be approached from the west, north, or south. This trip describes the western approach via the Garstin and Wild Horse Trails, but one can make an enjoyable longer loop or one-way trip in combination with the other routes."
