Mount San Jacinto and Palm Springs Tramway Tour
Motor out to Hemet and up Mount San Jacinto on 74, then down to Palm to Pines Highway to Palm Springs (arguably one of the coolest roads on the West Coast) and the Tramway. Ride up the Tramway to 8500′ and enjoy the 30 degree temperature drop. Have lunch & explore. Fun!
Two starting points (north and south):
North: Krispy Kreme @ 4485 Mills Cir. Ontario Mills. Meet at 8:00; leave at 8:30
South: Starbucks @ 30571 Temecula Pkwy. Temecula. Meet at 8:00; leave at 8:30
The two groups meet up at Chevron / Taco Bell on 43510 State Hwy 74 in Hemet @ 9:30; leave at 9:45
Afternoon return may include a tour through Joshua Tree National Park!
SCMM has done this run in the past and we do it in the summer to enjoy that 30 degree temperature difference between the desert floor and the 8500′ summit. Hope to see many Inland Empire and San Diego members join us on Sunday August 12th.

As you can see from the above, this event was originally scheduled for August. A vote of SCMM members asked us to move to a cooler month… thus October. Plan to attend ! This will be great roads and a fun event!
