The hike wanders through the canyon floor lined with Palm trees and then ascends up through a variety of cactus and amazing vistas of Palm Springs and... More

We drove to Palm Canyon on a Monday and paid the $9 per person just to enter the site. We were looking forward to taking one of the ranger led hikes described here and in their literature. Once we arrived at the trailhead we found out that the Rangers only lead hikes on weekends. We went ahead and did several... More

We hiked Palm Canyon in January 2016. We chose the Victor Trail, which was a moderate hike of about 4 miles. The trailhead begins to the left of the Trading Post, where you can purchase souvenirs, snacks, books about Native Americans and the desert, and, most importantly WATER. The clerks in the store are Native and very knowledgable about their... More

We enjoyed and after short hike in the canyon. It was shaded which was nice. The Palm trees fronds go all the way to the ground and are huge. There was a restroom,souvenior shop and snack shop.

If you like hiking in spectacular scenery..this is perfect for you. You need a car to get to the Canyon and there is a fee to access the area...but it's minimal. Take your camera. Hikes can be as long or short as you want. If the weather is hot take bottled water for sure.

Loved the Andreas Canyon Trail. Beautiful hike along the water and in the trees then you come out on top to overlook the Oasis and the valley. Perfect hike for our 10 year old.

This is a beautiful place worth a visit. The shorter hikes are very accessible and doable with smaller kids. Magnificent views. Get here early cause it can get really crowded during the day.

This is a beautiful place where you could spend a lot of time walking. It is filled with beautiful native Palm trees. You can take a short hike or a long one. We saw families with small children enjoying the oasis that naturally exist in this desert canyon.
