The Adventure Continues… Top of San Jacinto

After hiking (almost) to the top of Mt. Konocti in Lake County last March, I know from personal experience that climbing a mountain is never easy. In this episode of Huell’s show Visiting, he takes a much easier path to the mountaintop. You may recall I previously shared a 1997 segment of California’s Gold (back in January 2019) where Huell rode the tram to the top of Mt. San Jacinto — but this episode is from a more recent visit, in the summer of 2000.

I was amazed to hear the park ranger report that of all the thousands of people who ride the tram to the top of the mountain, only 30-40 percent ever venture beyond the tram building to explore the wilderness trails! Am I the only one who finds that just a little bit sad?

Huell takes the famous Aerial Tram Way to the top of Mt. San Jacinto high above Palm Springs. Join him as he talks to the many hikers who venture to the top for the great views, abundant nature and clean air.
