I am always a little leery when I hike alone but there were so many people, including families, that I felt safe. The trails have multiple splinters, so if the trail narrows too much, just try another. The road in is really long, and you...More

If you don't hike here, then you haven't been to Palm Springs. It becomes obvious how the place got its name. The palms are photogenic against the backdrop of the dramatic canyon geology. It's well worth the nominal admission fee that helps the tribe keep...More
