We visited the three hiking areas managed by the Aguas Calientes band of Cuahuila Indians that comprise the Indian Canyons: San Andreas Canyon, Palm Canyon, and Murray Canyon, all quite close to each other and just a short drive from downtown Palm Springs but a world apart in feel and weather. These canyons, easy-to-moderate in length and hiking capacity, are... More

Local family, out here as often as possible. Whether its Andreas canyon loop,Tahquitz, Palm or the amazing 7 sisters my kids have done it all from young age and always enjoy thereselves for the couple of hours of no Wi-Fi. Great for picnics in any season except for summer. Summer heat is extreme and not for everyone

Doesn't open until 8AM and I there is a fee. The best areas are the Andreas canyon and Murray canyon hikes that you turn off to before the visitor center. After the visitor center is the main about a mile long sort of lush palm tree hike. All the other hikes are quite exposed with intense desert sunshine.

We hiked 3 miles and found it nice and pleasant with interesting things to see. As you hiked the vegetation changed which I thought was interesting.

The rangers were professional and showed exceptional knowledge of the environment and conservation of their park. They showed keen interest in making sure the students understood the importance of their park while also enforcing the rules and regulations to keep us safe throughout our nature walk.

This is our first visit to the Palm Springs area. Our goal is visit as much of the desert area as possible and explore the many hiking opportunities and scenic areas. The Indian Canyons was a wonderful surprise and the photos on the web don't do the location justice! We were pleasantly surprised. The short walk down to the bottom... More

My wife and I were visiting Palm Springs for the first time to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. Mike at the Hotel California recommended Indian Canyons and he got it right - it's well worth the visit. Stunning views, great vegetation, a range of trails and wildlife - ask my wife about the rattle snake we encountered! Great fun.

We hiked 2 trails in Indian Canyon totalling about 5 hours with many small breaks. We started out on Palm Canyon Trail and ended up going onto Victor Trail to loop back to the Trading Post. Palms dot the trail providing a little shade but it was mostly full sun on the Victor Trail. Nice desert views. Didn't see any... More
