Geocache Description:

Desert cache overlooking Bob Hope's Palm Springs home.

Cache is in the hills south of Palm Springs overlooking Bob Hope's circular home. Trailhead is near the intersection of East Palm Canyon Drive (State Highway 111) and Southridge Drive. Look for signs that say Araby Trail. This is not really a summer time cache and the trail is steep and exposed. The day i placed the cache i started out about 7:30am and it was way too hot. If you want to do the hike in the summer best to start very early before sunrise. Watch for snakes and bring water! Be sure to sign the logbook. Also besides a nice view of Bob's place from the cache you can see my house too! I'm at a bearing of 337° (true) and 1.41 miles distance. I can see the cache from my front yard so i'll be keeping an eye on you! A nice side hike from here is the Flag over Palm Springs cache. See GC2165 for details. More photos and info are on my Geocaching page...
