My wife and I visited this canyon by being part of a ranger led group ....I was not prepared for the level of inclines and rapid pace of this hike. All too often, I was watching the trail to avoid tripping and keeping up with the group to really see much of the scenery around me. I also felt that... More

For hikers of all abilities, this is an incredible desert experience. Depending on the time of year, you'll see waterfalls and streams, a blooming desert and birds and animals. I've seen rattlesnakes! You can go alone or with other hikers.

Great place to go hiking and close to everything in Palm Springs cost about $10 and it's well worth it with many many likes to go on once you enter the gates store is fun to shop in

This is an easy place to get to if you are staying in the Palm Springs area. There is a per person fee to get onto the Indian reservation, but it is well worth the cost. Plan ahead and pack a picnic lunch and bring water bottles to stay hydrated. There are lots of different hiking options, varying from easy... More

These canyons are amazing! A stream runs through them which allows for palms and other vegetation. Trails are abundant and vary in length and difficulty. The West Fork Falls are a very short hike from the Palm Canyon parking lot and are a nice small two level falls.

Had a great time hiking in the canyons. Disappointed we could not hike to the falls. Too wet. Only suggestion i have is that they mark the trails better. Hard to know where to go after looking at the map.
