Very interesting ecosystem with knowledgeable docents and tours. Visitors' Center is rustic and small. Bring your own water --just easier that way. Can be very hot which makes a normally easy walk a trying trek.

I've been here twice. It's such a fun place to visit when you're in the vicinity. It's almost like you've went far, far away from civilization. Great place for a light hike, and perfect for families! The visitor center is so cool and informative also!...More

This is a great place to go walking! The trails are well maintained, and there is no liter anywhere. The palm trees are impressive and a sight to see! I highly recommend visiting Coachella Valley.

This wet area in the desert is interesting but it is not that close to Palm Springs. We drove many miles out of the way and expected much more based on these tripadvisor ratings.

There is a a few places that are nice and kept up. Other places are scattered with trash and not kept up. The trails are easy to pass through and offers some good areas to see some desert views.

This was a very enjoyable visit for our whole family (12, including teens and younger ones). We saw huge palm trees of different kinds, then walked the one mile trail out through the desert to the other oasis with a pond. There are benches if...More

On the san andreas fault line, there is enough moisture that comes up through the cracks to provide water for this natural oasis of palm trees in the desert. A lovely walk on raised decking, leading to a desert stroll to the 2nd part which...More

No dogs or other pets allowed in Coachella Valley Preserve as they disturb wildlife. Whitewater Preserve allows dogs, but you are required to clean up after them.

Coachella Preserve not good for strollers. When you enter the palm grove, there are steps of varying heights leading down to the boardwalk. Not at all conducive to strollers. A better possibility would be Whitewater... More

I've never been to Indian Canyons. The Coachella Valley is beautiful, especially the water fall if it is still flowing this late in the season.
