We love hiking the trails here and finding a seat on a rock in a mountain stream to just soak it in. There is so much beauty here and it's the perfect definition of serenity to sit there and soak it all in. We've been coming here for 18 years and looking forward to our next visit.

This is a beautiful park with well marked and maintained trails. I enjoyed my hike from the Trading Post through Palm Canyons and back on the Victor Trail. I found it easy to intermediate and would recommend it to anyone who wants to see the contrast of the oasis with walking on a ridge with a backdrop of snow-capped mountains.... More

This is a short drive from Palm Springs, we were there in about 10 minutes. The canyon is on native land and the fee to enter is $9 general admission, $7 for seniors 62+ and military. It was a hot afternoon and we are not great hikers, so we were not sure what to expect. But not to worry as... More

Gorgeous palm oases nestled within the canyon walls. Hike, walk, picnic; just enjoy the beauty that surrounds you.

We visited Palm Canyon..a stunning oasis in the mountains. It is rugged and beautiful. Nice small cafe/shop at entrance. Try a Fudgecicle in the desert. The drive is easy and worth it.

The Indian Canyons was definitely one of the delights we experienced on our trip to Palm Springs. Approximate 1 mile hike on the Andreas Canyon trail easy and allowed you to see and enjoy the landscape of the area. Enthusiastic park rangers gave additional information of the first nations culture of the area. Would love to go back and try... More

Fern Canyon Trail we were on was well posted at the start but nothing posted well into the hike - turned around after half of our water was used (1.5 hr.) so we didn't complete the loop we had planned.

Enjoyed the hike, thought the $12.50 was a little much. This is actually a short hike from the Warm Sands area.

What an amazing hiking experience! Although the Palm Springs desert can be hot, imagine hiking below towering palms in an oasis! Portions of the trails are exposed to the desert heat, but there are so many sections that give a little bit of shaded relief. We found the park personnel to be very friendly and happily sharing interesting information about... More

We were in PS for a few days for the first time in January. Because it was raining, a store clerk mentioned it would be a good day to see the waterfalls at the Indian Canyons. We asked some more questions and ended up driving down the next day (5 minutes south of town) so we just sort of stumbled... More
