You pay $9 per person to get in. The brochure they give you isn't much help. We found that your best bet is to go to the Trading Post where there are several trails that start there. We took Palms to Victor Loop. The Palms...More

We took only the shorter Andreas hike with our two kids (11 and 13). We had a great time. The palms were amazing. The kids agreed it was worth seeing.

Beautiful hiking area so very close to Palm Springs. But no staff around to provide any sort of information. Since we are paying a pretty good entrance fee you would think there would be a few people around to provide some information. Like why did...More

This is located on the Indian Reservation and it costs $9 per adult to get in but the trails along a couple different canyons where small rivers flow is full of tall palm trees and worth the visit.
