Played the Canyons North course. Was nice, the greens are crazy fast and the fairways are cut so short they are like carpet.

We visited the Tahquitz Canyon to start with and the lovely lady at the visitor centre advised that due to the time of day (midday in August) there would be little shade on that hike and we may be better at the Andreas Canyon. She was lovely and so right. We will do the Tahquitz Canyon hike at a more... More

It was 110 degrees when my wife, daughter and I headed out for an early morning hike. We found this to be an easy hike, with a nice rolling pathway. The park ranger was nice, as were all that we encountered on our visit. Just a note: if your Native American you will not have to pay to enter the... More

This is a great place to go and hike. There are many miles of trails. The trails are well maintained and marked very good. It is nice to be in the palm trees and walking around the streams.

This was where the indians lived many moons ago. The canyon goes back into the mountain a few miles and is chock full of palm trees along a running stream. Beautiful place. Bring your picnic lunch and walking shoes and enjoy an afternoon in nature

I love the Indian Canyons for hiking. They are a great way to explore the dessert. You cross a creek several times in the beginning of the hike. This canyon has the largest concentration of Fan Palm Trees in California. Be sure to leave by 4:30 as this is private tribal land.

The place is beautiful. Although I didn't do the hikes and trails, I plan on returning with proper shoes and enjoying the hikes.

Went today, and the entire site is closed, no signs giving any clue as to when it will be open. Don't waste your time! Probably too hot and/or open only on the week-end during summer
