“A nice walk”
Reviewed August 10, 2012

We took the 2 mile loop, although all of the publicity writes about guided tours at 8, 10 and 1 we arrived at 10 to be told only the 8 am guided tour runs in the summer due to the heat. It was 111 on the day we went, although it's only just under 2 miles you need plenty of water because you climb over 300 feet. It is worth it as you turnaround at a waterfall which must look fantastic in spring.

We saw a coyotee and a few lizards on our walk, it made a nice change from the pool.

“Easy walking and beautiful views close to downtown Palm Springs”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

If you want to experience the beauty that Palm Springs was named for ,you must go onto the Agua Caliente Indian reservation (access south of downtown off Palm Canyon) and drive up to the Indian Canyons You drive through the gate (you have to pay) and travel onto the reservation as you go back in time. AFter a short drive,park near the Trading Post and follow the easy (partly paved) trail down through the palm grove oasis. There's a lovely stream (not in the summer) that runs along the trail...with a great waterfall near the end of an easy hike. The vistas are amazing! Wear proper shoes and take water, or a picnic and laze along the giant rocks near the stream to enjoy a snck and the views!The trading post sells some snacks and indian trinkets and will also give you a map and information to make your day more fun! We've been going there for years and we always love it!!!

“Magical!!!”
Reviewed July 5, 2012

I toured this canyon a year ago with friends. The tour was interesting, informative, mystical and our guide was Indian himself and well informed about the Cahuilla Indians! We packed a lunch and ate next to the natural spring/river -- a great day being one with nature!
