Fun in the SUN!

Wow the great desert with waterfalls and sun. This was super fun we hiked and had lunch out here. Kids especially loved the desert. I will be back next year.

Indian Canyons is on an Indian reserve, so they charge admission to use their property (and so they should!). There's 2 parking areas with hiking trails off of them to the canyons. All the canyons have palm oasis so once you hike over the higher desert area, you get down into the palm trees which is quite cool! Lots of... More

Loved our hikes here, the views were so beautiful. Very much worth the $9 to get in. Parking can be a little tricky if you come during the busiest part of the day. Did a nice 3 mile hike up palm canyon and return victor trail and another 3 mile hike to the 7 sisters waterfall.

Don't think that the hike is only 2.5 miles. It is straight up hill and it's 2.5 to the sign which say 7 more miles (not a loop). Wow. Bring water. $9 per person but it's a special place.

The Indian Canyon itself was absolutely beautiful and the cost of $8 bucks per head was even fine considering somebody has to maintain this beauty. However, when I walked in the porta potty and the toilet paper was about 6 inches higher than the toilet seat it was just disgusting and I was very glad I didnt do that first.... More

After reading all of the reviews here we decided to take the Indian Canyon Hike. We ended up selecting the Palm Canyon Trail and planned to hike up to the stone pools and back. We arrived a few minutes before 8am and waited in line to enter the Canyons. It was a beautiful morning and we were excited for the... More

Itis a somewhat difficult walk for a slightly disabled elderly person, the rich reward of the beauty and tranquility are well worth it.

We only did the little loop near the Andreas/Murray parking. Very beautiful and easy hike along a little river followed by palm trees around the banks. Easy path for young kids (our kids 7, 5, and 3). They loved the river and climbing rocks. There were frequent lizard encounters which kept them engaged in the trek. I put 4 star... More

We came from the snowy East Coast in February so we were delighted with the sun and desert scene. You need to start early though as it can get very hot by noon.
