You'll not only love this hike and the beauty of these canyons, you'll feel steeped in history for this is where there was water in this vast desert, and the Native Americans set the agenda for all the years to come and thousands of visitors to Palm Springs can feel what it must have been like to find this respite...

The wonder of ancient palm trees -- some over a thousand years old! Hummingbirds galore and breathtaking vistas and a lovely hike.

I hiked both Palm Canyon and then Andreas Canyon. Amazing and beautiful! I put my feet in the running streams at Andreas Canyon. A must place to hike when in Palm Springs!

Palms, water and indians. Beautiful spot away from the congestion and mayhem of the Palm Springs area.

You can have a ranger guided hike here. There is a nice pool, water falls at mid point where you can cool off if you want. Nice hike. Not my favourite that we did but was worth it.

We took all of our guests to the Agua Caliente Indian Canyons. They have a great circuit hike around the palm tree oasis that is fun for all levels of hiker. Even if you aren't a hiker, the oasis is a must-do stop in Palm Springs.

Nice hike in the canyon, the palm trees are stunning. Plenty of hummingbirds to watch at the trading post.

We walked through 1 canyon, it was fantastic! I did not know much about oases or types of palm trees...what a great experience, I definitely want to explore the other canyons next time to Palm Springs area.

We only discovered this attraction towards the end of our vacation in Palm Springs and, due to the September desert heat, only spent about 2.5 hours exploring a fraction of the trails. I call it an attraction for want of a better word. It is essentially a series of hiking trails through some of the most beautiful areas of the... More

Do yourself a favor, take the guided tour with the Park Ranger. It's so informative! Stories and information that you won't get if you go on your own. Go early on the morning. Dress in layers. Wear a cap or hat, the sun gets really bold while you are there.
