This is one of my favorite places in the Palm Springs area. While most of the surrounding terrain around Palm Springs is pretty dry (It's the desert, right? :-) ), Indian Canyons is a true oasis. I prefer to visit in the Spring when the streams are at full capacity but year-round the canyons provide a shady hike in a... More

This is an ancient spot where native Aqua Caliente Indians lived. It is a lovely stream filled with Washingtonia Palms (only place they grow is Palm Springs). It is a great place to visit that is cool and shaded and provides a nice place to spend some time exploring that area, or going for a hike. The Washingtonia Palms were... More

We began our first hike with Ranger Ralph! He was very helpful with tips for our hike! We did the Andreas Canyon as well as Indian Palm Canyon. Both were wonderful. We could not believe the views from down in the Canyons. Even though there has been no rain in a long time, these canyons are worth hiking! Enjoy!

One of the most beautiful areas I have ever hiked. This is a desert oasis. Tropical plants as well as desert plants in a unspoiled and undeveloped serene desert environment. Amazing! I would love to visit again and again.

Not many places on earth can provide this experience. The combination of the palm groves, rock cliffs, desert plants and the sound of running water provide you a special environment to explore. After you pay your entrance fee at the gate into the tribal land, you drive about 5 minutes up to the parking lot by the Trading Post. That... More

Fantastic place. Gorgeous scenery and several lovely hikes - the perfect way to get away from the crowds. Peaceful, beautiful, soul refreshing. The palms are huge, the river is lovely to sit by. There is enough shade on some of the hikes to do this no matter what the weather (it was around 100 degrees when we went). Give yourself... More

Absolutely amazing place. A bit of a climb to get out of the lower canyon but well worth it. Give yourself 3 or more hours. Nice cool hike through the palm trees.

Didn't get to go in as it was closed on a Wednesday morning. Posted just outside the gate was a sign stating that the spot is only open Fri-Sun during the July through Sep summer season.
