The canyons are not far from downtown, wear comfortable shoes and take a light basket lunch if you like. The waterfalls and foliage are beautiful..definitely with a visit, even if you live here as we do.

We were excited to take the hike based good reviews so got up to get there at the opening. We arrived 5 minutes early and saw there was a woman in the guard booth and a park employee in a pickup outside with the gate still closed. They were chatting with each other and clearly saw us 20 feet away... More

OK, so we may be labeled crazy for hiking in weather over 100f, but the lure of this Canyon trail was too great. We were not disappointed. The trail follows a stream half a mile up the Canyon, ensconced and shaded by palm trees, then crosses a bridge, and Comes down the other side. We arrived at the gate at... More

A great hike among the palm trees climbing up the mountain-side. The vistas are stunning, and the wildlife and native houses marvelous to see. How to keep cool in the desert, and the Agua Caliente have been doing it for time immemorial. Don't miss Tahquitz Canyon either, A shorter hike but the waterfall and the height is well-worth it.

If you don't play golf or tennis, the Palm Springs area may bore you. We looked for interesting sights to tour, and this oasis was worth the $9 entrance fee. The palm forest protects you from the heat, and we enjoyed the experience. Many of the trails seem to lead you to dry, exposed areas of the desert, so we... More

The temps were perfect for a hike along the Palm Springs Canyon Trail. The hike was a 3.5 mile loop that was easy to moderate at times. Everyone marveled at the oasis consisting of Palm trees and spring water.
