Wonderful place to make a day hike….very scenic and trails are well marked and not difficult. Should try to get there early as parking is limited.

indian Canyons has several hikes for all abilities from novice to advanced. Unless you have experience in desert hiking, I recommend the Indian Canyon hike and do only part of it, the part that has lots of shade and creeks which had stagnant water during our early April visit. It is a beautiful palce with many interesting rock formations and... More

We spent a few hours here one morning and thoroughly enjoyed it. We spoke to a friendly and helpful ranger who set us on the right paths for the amount of time we had. The scenery is just amazing - you're surrounded by desert, and then all of the sudden there's a strip of life and green vegetation (and palm... More

Indian Canyons has quite a few trail options for various abilities. We chose to go on Andreas Canyon Trail on our last day of vacation. What a mistake waiting for the end of our trip. We would have come at least 3 or 4 times taking different trails. This trail is easy with a gain of elevation of less than... More

BEautiful palm canyon. Cool mountain trails. Go early in the day so the sun doesn't roast you. A wonderful break from Rolls-Royce Palm Springs.

For us what was there not to like? The desert experience here is fantastic- walk the trails, catch the Ranger's talk- giving details of history of habitation as well information on the flora & fauna. Watch a myriad of tiny jewel like hummingbirds take nectar from the feeders. Experience the sights, sounds & scents of the desert in this very... More

Great location, great at taking your money, but poor on map signage. Hate to think what would happen if someone had a medical situation as there simply is no one around.
