Started off at 9:00 and without thinking started up the trail the the mine... 10km round trip for those of you using metric... Or 6 miles. We turned around after about 2 miles as it was scorching hot and we didn't have as much water as we were going to need. Headed back down and went on the Andreas trail... More

our entire group of 10 adults (all 50+) went on a terrific 3 mile hike at this reservation. We had such a good time. The scenery was amazing and the staff was so nice and generous with their time as we asked a lot of questions prior to heading out. This was definitely a highlight of the week for us!

Ancient palm trees, thousands of years old, not the ones you see in the city, these are from yesteryear , nothing like it, fascinating hike, there is a sense of peace and tranquility there, you can have a pic nick and listen to the sounds of the desert as the ancient ones whisper through the palms, not to be missed.

We went in March and the temperature was great for hiking. The scenery was awesome. I hiked with my one year old in a Baby Bjorn and we really enjoyed the easier trails. We loved the contrast between the desert and water flowing canyons.

Amazing walks, both were manageable, I would rate the scenery a 5. The only thing that was unpleasant about our trip was the lady at the gate. Dang! She was very grouchy and annoyed at any questions being asked :( Would go back but wont be asking her for advice!

We were given a top notch guided tour walking trails worn down by thousands of feet over hundreds of years. Expecting a boring dusty walk our guide enlightened us of the many medicinal plants the indians have used, the harshness of the desert and how the inhabitants have survived all these years.

Unexpected lush oasis in the middle of the desert. Hiking trails for every ability level and interest. Picnic tables for a quiet lunch break. Peaceful and serene area for reflection.

Amazing! What a juxtaposition!! The mid century modern city of Palm Springs against the grand magnitude of the canyons! Great hiking trails! The Rangers are very in tune with hikers making sure they take enough water and making suggestions if they feel they are physically not capable of going certain distances. There is something for everyone though so don't shy... More
