The main corridor of Palm Springs is an eclectic bunch of shops, restaurants and fun things for locals and visitors alike..hot in the summer, mild int he winter, Thursday night street fair is a must go especially in the winter.

Interesting to walk through a palm oasis. The trees are huge. Was quite cool in shade of the palms despite the day being hot. Surprised that the small creek was enough to support the trees. Was a bit of a hike up & down the hillside to get into the valley. Maybe the equivalent of 4-5 flights of stairs. Nice... More

we stayed at the almost deserted campground and we're lucky enough to spot a herd of Bighorn on the mountains above. the trail is a nice easy hike, take water when it's hot.

Palm Canyon is on the Indian Reservation, cost was $5.00 a person for entrance. Nicely paved road winds up to the small Trading Post, nothing special, food, t-shirts, hats, drinks etc. Short hike down into the canyon and the towering palm trees. Nice and shady and cool. We were not geared up for hiking any further as it was quite... More

We saw this oasis on an episode of California Gold, a statewide travel show on PBS. I believe their are several water(springs?) that have a series of plam trees growing along the creek. A second creek that I believe is called Warm Springs appeared to be dry, but the palm trees were lining the normal water route. It cost $14... More

I ended up in Palm Canyon on a whim after looking at other TA reviews. It didn't disappoint. The entrance fee to the area is $9 for each adult. Once you park, there's a store you can stock up on water if you forgot to bring some. The Palm hike is 15 miles, some in the beautiful palm oasis, and... More

This is so close to town, and so beautiful. They have a nicely marked map with the many trails, from easy to hard. My companion on this excursion walks with a cane. We went to the Trading post first and were lucky to catch the talk by one of the rangers about the area. He was also able to direct... More

Just outside of Palm Springs you will find a hidden gem with beautiful rock formations and green belts full of Palm trees. Make sure you pull over and walk the area because you will find streams and miniature water falls. It is truly spectacular. You will be entering Indian grounds so be prepared to pay the entrance fee but it... More
