Sunset Strip

A picturesque cruise up the famous Palms to Pines Scenic Byway (also known as Highway 74) is a Palm Desert must. Wind deep into the heart of these ancient mountains as suspense-building curves give way to changing vistas and photogenic lookout points, all before the sun drops behind the mountain. Few hikers can resist a detour onto the challenging 8.3- mile Art Smith Trail .
