This park/reserve is pretty expensive to get into at $9 per adult. It's worth it though. Its beautifully maintained and very clean. Go and plan on spending at least 2-3 hours. Not stroller accessible. Check out the hummingbird feeder behind the trading post for lots of birdie action.

A great hike. Lots of variety and beautiful oasis at the end. We had to cross a stream which was a it if a challenge but manageable. Would definitely recommend the hike for the average hiker. Not strenuous but need to be fairly fit.

Just a short ride from Palm Springs. There are some hikes around the area. Beautiful palm trees and a meandering stream down in the canyon. A nice place to go on a hot day as its cool down in the canyon.

With three canyons to explore and dozens of hikes to choose from, this is one thing not to be missed in Palm Springs. A ten minute drive from downtown and a $9 entry fee gets you access to the palm oasis, gorgeous hikes, and beautiful landscape. Even 6.5 months pregnant, we especially liked the Victor Hike - about 3 miles... More

We had to pay $5.00 to get in the Canyon. It was worth it. The Indian Canyon is a easy hike next to a beautiful creek with natural vegetation and cactus. It is one of the few places left that is still natural in the desert.

There are two parts to this hike. The shorter one is a great view of palms and rock, cacti, and other vegetation. The second one at the Traders Cabin can be longer or a short hike down to the water. Both are great.

The lobby and rooms are spacious and clean. The lobby has multiple restaurants, including The Steakhouse, which has a dinner special from 5-6p. The lobby also has a few shops. My favorite part was the spa, which you can use all day and includes a private pool. I'll be back.

I've known about the trails here but have always made the trip to fabulous Joshua Tree National Park - after all how could something minutes from Palm Springs be as interesting? Wrong! We were blown away by the Oases which looked as if they had been lifted from the set for a Hollywood movie...well maintained and fascinating and well worth... More

I called to check if they were opened since it had rained 2 days. They said they were open. When we arrived we found out the trails were only partially accessible. We had to turn back after only a half mile on Morro Canyon and only did the short trail at another. We asked for a refund upon arrival since... More
