Apache Peak Professional Review and Guide
"Apache Peak stands high on the Desert Divide, guarded on the north and west by sheer rock walls. Surprisingly, the summit itself is merely a rounded bump covered in chaparral. Whatever the peak may lack in rugged beauty, however, is compensated for by its 360-degree views of the entire Desert Divide, Santa Rosa Mountains, and Coachella and Garner Valleys. Backpackers will enjoy the nearby Apache Spring, with a reliable water source and good camping. The trip can be done as an out-and-back hike from the Zen Center, or with a short shuttle, as a loop down the scenic Spitler Peak Trail. Apache Peak is a seemingly strange name for the peak, which is located in the middle of Cahuilla Indian territory."
