This place has numerous hikes so there's one or more for every taste. It's amazing to hike under these huge palms in such a dry place. Bring a picnic and stay a while. If you're driving down Palm Canyon Dr from Palm Springs, don't miss the right turn onto South Palm Canyon; the arrow on the sign for Indian Canyons... More

I feel whenever you go away you should see as many places as possible. We went to Palm Canyon first and experienced the palm oasis, very beautiful, it was a short walk. Then we went to Andreas Canyon where we took a 1 mile easy hike and this was more beautiful then Palm Canyon. We didn't go to Murray Canyon... More

Our last day in Indio, we decided to go to Indian Canyon. I am so glad we did. It is amazingly beautiful. Not a long walk into the canyon but is downhill and then uphill back. Once down there, be amazed at the Oasis. Water flows through the canyon; consequently, in the sandy landscape, you will find green plants and... More

At $9 per person, this might be steep for a hike given the lovely paths all around Palm Springs, but the oasis aspect is lovely.

Easy to get too, the Canyon once inside has to be seen to be believed - water must be plentiful underground because the greenery and Palm Tree canopy is peaceful and priceless

you can take easy trails to oases or tough workout climbing trails to test yourself. The maynard mine trail is a doozy but gives great views.Afterward you can soak your feet in the natural streams under palm trees. There is an entry fee,but it is worth the price of admission . There is also a small snack stand and gift... More

We have visited Palm Springs many times in the last few years but somehow not made it to this gem located just on the south side of the city. We had 'done' the Joshua Tree National Park, and enjoyed it and needed a hike but couldn't face the 1 hour drive there so asked around and this came up. Glad... More

Tired of the long drive to Joshua Tree we wanted to try something different closer to Palms Springs. This is a great option. The biggest negative is the $9 entrance fee for each adult rather than per car, but for an all day activity it is still worth it. Arrive early, participate in the Ranger talk held at 10 a.m.... More

quite a sight, you drive up out of the city into the hills and the into the dessert and then all of a sudden you see swaths of Green and there are these Oasis that you can hike through.
