Enjoy the natural beauty of the desert and avoid the tackiness of the commercial districts. Hold your nose and then breathe on these trails...

Visited both Palm Canyon and Andreas Canyon trail. After about 20 minutes into Palm Canyon, we decided to turn around and drive back down to Andreas trail. Andreas hike was much easier, and shorter. We hiked up the shaded creek water running side and came down the dry (no water) much more hotter side. When you come to the mini bridge crossing the creek you know you're at half point. Suggestion, start on sunny side and cool off by coming down running water creek side. All in all super amazing hike with lush oasis fan palm trees and rock formations!

The hike was easy- the quietness was mystical- you can sense the way this place was revered by the past inhabitants. Staff was nice. A little strange we had to wear plastic bracelets showing we paid to go in!! The waterfall was small this time of year but pleasant. Trail easy to follow too

Great hiking trails with options for novice and experienced hikers. A great way to really get a feel for the desert - with the added bonus of a beautiful oasis along the way.

Nice way to burn off some vacation calories!

The best part about this hike is that it is that you feel so removed from civilization. You'll love the beauty and how natural it is.
