Description Suggest change

This is the big slab and waterfall that you can see, to the west, from Palm Springs at the base of Mt. San Jacinto. It is about 300 tall.

Getting There Suggest change

Drive from downtown Palm Springs on side streets until you can see the Dry Falls. Park and hike for about 60-90 min. to the slab.  Access is easiest on the north side of the neighborhood at the end of the W Dolores Ct cul du sac.  There is a small trail that will take you to a chain link fence with a hole cut out of it.  The small trail leads to a short switch back area which eventually links up with a main upper trail (visibly noticeable from the street or basin area) . From there, follow the trail south until you meet the creek bed of the dry falls.  Follow that creek bed west until you reach the base of the dry falls.
