THIS is why they call it Palm Springs!

One of the best intermediate hikes in the valley. Great for kids and seniors or anyone interested in a leisurely walk through a desert oasis.

The palm trees are 200 years old and was the beginning of Palm Springs. The canyons have water and good for picnics and hiking. Youcan access by car and then hike.there is also an Indian shop.

If you like nature and the outdoors, then Indian Canyons is a wonderful half day outing. The hiking is fairly easy and the cooling effect from the cascading water and towering Palm trees make it a great place to enjoy a different part of the desert. Admission fee is a little steep, but definitely worth the price at least one... More

We absolutely loved our hike here. Not strenuous, but the palm trees and winding river bed was incredible. Had a ranger giving oral history and tidbits about area. This is Native Indian land and they are richly preserving their history. There is a fee, gift shop and restrooms.

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.
