Great, easy-to-moderate hikes and a well-designed and informative center. There's a fee and the parking lot can fill up. You might rent a couple of bikes and ride to the center. There's a hill for the last mile or so - but coming down is great!

They close at 5 and seem really adamant about closing at 5. They warn you that your car will be towed if you are not out by 5. The road to the outpost can be scary because in some parts only one car fits so drive carefully. the hikes are all about under 3 miles if i remember correctly. its... More

Staff was very helpful regarding trail information. Make sure to take plenty of water. Not a lot of shade once you get beyond a mile of outpost.

With easy to difficult hiking routes, everyone has their opportunity to enjoy the majestic views, scenery of the Andreas Mountain with its streams, botany and various palm tree species.

We visited Agua Caliente Canyon with friends and did some hiking along marked trails that could have used a bit more directional signage. The trip to the Canyon trail is steeply downhill (which, of course, means a steep uphill climb at the end!), marked with a large sign warning that this is a rattlesnake area (only animal we saw was...

An extraordinary combination of palm oases and barrel-cacti desert. A feast for the senses. Bring water and decent walking shoes. Sometimes the feet will get wet.

Andreas canyon loop is a good introduction, especially for families with small children, Murray canyon is more solitary, with water falls, and Palm canyon is --well, luscious palm oasis. There was a tribal ranger available for question in the Andreas canyon picnic/parking area, very friendly and very knowledgeable.

I've been coming to these canyons for 52 years. Now we're bringing our grandkids! My husband is a Native American - Choctaw. If anyone in your family is a Native American, bring your tribal card so your whole carload can get in free!

Very interesting to see such a lush little oasis in the desert. Much seems to fed by underground springs. rocky climb down into the canyon from the visitor centre. I would wear good hiking type shoes. Apparently there may be a few rattlesnake in the area so stay on the paths and keep your ears open. I will visit again... More
