Until just recently, the hillside neighborhood of Chino Canyon, Palm Springs has been made up almost exclusively of custom homes, built one at a time by individuals and developers on vacant lots.
Even though it’s one of the original neighborhoods, there are still a few vacant lots and land for sale with stunning mountain and city views. My guess is that the cost of building is prohibitive to many individuals, due to the massive boulders that need to be moved, on many of the lots. If not for this, the neighborhood would have been completely developed long ago.
Contact me today, at the number above or email firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance in purchasing any of these remaining lots.
I was just looking through some vintage Palm Springs family photos and came across these two. In the late 1950s, before moving to Palm Springs full time, my grandparents rented this cool Spanish style home on West Cabrillo Road in Chino Canyon.
The picture of me (right) and my brother, was taken in the pool of this beautiful home, which looks much the same today as it did back then.

Early this morning I took a hike from the Palm Springs Visitor Center, on Palm Canyon Drive, to the Aerial Tram Valley Station, located in Chino Canyon.
The hike is approximately 3.7 miles and very steep and strenuous. The Tram station, where the tram cars depart, is 2,643 feet above the desert floor.
Along the way, I passed about a dozen walkers, hikers, joggers and bicycle riders, either on the way up or on the way down, ranging in age from their 20s to their 80s. The hike is along a paved pedestrian lane, next to the two lane Tram Way road. It took me about 1-1/2 hours going up and about 1 hour coming down. The entire trip was a little over 2-1/2 hours, plus a 15 minute break at the Tram Station.
My grandparents lived in Chino Canyon, and as a kid I used to hike to the Tram Station with my grandfather. Only we didn’t take the paved road. We hiked over rocks and sand and boulders, and through the oasis, to reach our destination.
If you love the mountains and walking and hiking, like I do, you won’t find a better place to live and keep fit than Chino Canyon, Palm Springs. Above are a few photos I took during my hike.
El Rancho Vista Estates, Palm Springs is known primarily as a premier neighborhood for midcentury modern homes on fee simple land (you own it) and no homeowner association fees (HOAs). But it’s also the only neighborhood in Palm Springs, that I know of, where you’ll find a Bocce Ball court.
