We did the Murray Canyon loop hike, which was easy going and incredibly beautiful, followed by a quick visit to Palm Canyon but decided not to embark on any of the hikes starting from here due to the heat. Palm Canyon itself was amazing. Great value for money.

Very peaceful hike to two beautiful oases that seemed to come out of no where. Also did a short one mile loop-this one is easy for small children to do as well.

What a terrific surprise to see during our stay in Palm Springs. Just minutes away from the city, the canyon offers all levels of hiking good for everyone in the family. We started our day at 830 am and there were few people around. We finished around 12 and the crowds were filling the parking lot when we finished. Best... More

Pack lots of water, snacks and lunch. If you like the outdoor and hiking, don't pass this up. Be prepared to pay to enter park. We only had an hour and a half, hiked one shorter trail, Andreas Canyon, and saw the Palms Oasis. Probably need 4-5 hours to hike the longer trails. Well worth trip!

$9.00 entrance fee per adult was a little annoying until you get into these canyons and appreciate the ability to visit and explore the beauty of the desert on these sacred Indian lands. Andreas Canyon was lush and easy, beautiful 1 mile loop. Farther up the road is the Palm Canyon hike with lots of picnic opportunities and numerous hikes... More

My husband and I enjoyed two relatively easy hikes. There are picnic tables and restrooms below the Palm Canyon parking area located in the middle of the park.

We went there for some short walks and experienced a unique oasis & landscape. There are lovely streams running through the otherwise desert landscape. At the trading post there are some local and genuine keep sakes for purchase plus basic food & drink on sale. Keep an eye out for the humming birds at the drink stations outside the trading... More

You need to be aware that lots of the items listed in trip advisors are part of the same reserve: Indian canyon and agua caliente Indian canyon should be merged. Note that Palm canyon, Andreas canyon, Murray canyon, tahquitz canyon, canyon trails, etc are all in the same reserve. I would suggest you start with the most amazing and beautiful... More

A bit hard to find due to other similar-sounding attractions ("Indian Canyons" vs "Agua Caliente Indian Canyons") -- even staff at our hotel seemed confused about it. Front entrance personnel not friendly at all and seemed primarily interested in making sure we were aware of the need to be out of the park by 5pm or would be towed. The... More
