The Araby Trail climbs the canyon overlooking the modernistic Bob Hope estate on the southern edge of Palm Springs and offers close-up views of the comedian’s sprawling ridge top compound. Actor Steven McQueen later owned the home until his death in 1980. The Palm Springs International Airport is close by and you are likely to see the private jets of the rich and famous landing and departing as you hike.

Five-Star Trails Palm Springs

This hike begins outside an exclusive gated community that was once home to Bob Hope and Steve McQueen, and it turns into a strenuous ascent up shadeless switchbacks that come within a stone’s throw of Hope’s Jetsons-like former home.

Locals call it “the trail to Bob Hope’s house,” but it also connects with other paths within the desert trail system, including the Garstin, Berns, and Clara Burgess Trails. Boasting an elevation gain of 1,300 feet, this hike is appreciated more for its good cardio workout and celebrity connection than for its attractive views.

This is a pleasant jaunt of switchbacks to the boundary of the Santa Rosa and San Jacinto Mountains National Monument. The trail heads into the Santa Rosa Mountains and overlooks Palm Springs and the Coachella Valley with the San Jacinto Mountains to the west.
