As I said the wait was too long and the center does not allow pets. the woman at the entrance was cranky and not open to telling us any information. Overall, the hike was okay but it was not worth it to sit in the car and wait to get in to the canyon

We chose the trail that took us to the Seven Sisters waterfall. It is about a 4 mi hike, but the equivalent of 5-6 mi. on level ground. The waterfall is pretty small, but the scenery along the way was quite enjoyable. There are many trails to choose from at Indian Canyons. $9/person to get into the park.

Family and friends went to Palm Springs for Thanksgiving - some hikers, some not. But everyone went on the Indian Canyon trails and thoroughly enjoyed their time. We did the Murray Canyon trail which I would highly recommend.

I don't think they have disabled trails (yet), but everyone else can hike these trails. I'm no triathlete, but I had a marvelous time climbing up and around the oasis. It really is beautiful and a must see if you're not familiar with mountains. These are the easiest trails you'll find.

The hiking trails were not too hard. I enjoyed the Murray trail the most. It was a little longer but more interesting. However, all of the trips were great

Nice hiking area close to palm springs. If you've already done Joshua Tree, this is a good follow up. The views and scenery are a bit different and there are plenty of trails to choose from. We were limited on time and just did parts of Murray Canyon and Palm Canyon. Definitely recommend both. Especially Palm Canyon. Lots to see... More

I have written a longer review under the heading Indian Canyons which I won't repeat here. But this is a great area to hike very close to the city of Palm Springs, though once you are here you wouldn't know you were close to a city. We did the hike in November but still needed water. Don't forget!

I recommend this hike for people who don't mind paying for a hike to see a great example of a desert oasis.

We hiked two trails, the Andreas Canyon Trail a short easy hike takes you into native palm trees and at times along running water which is a bonus for drought stricken California. The second was the Murray Canyon Trail a little longer and steeper than Andreas Trail, but still an easy trail. There are a few small waterfalls at the... More

It's a great place to go hiking but be prepared as it gets very hot in the canyons once you get past the palm tree valley. Take your water and sunscreen and a hat. It's a medium hiking level but is a classic example of arid landscapes with desert plants and animals. Enjoy the hike but go early
