We didnt have much time in Palm Springs and having visited the excellent aviation museum, and the frankly dissapointing town we had a day or so to make the most of. After a bit of research we decided to make our way up to the Indian Canyon area and explore the Palm Canyon. Could not have made a better choice.... More

We go here every time we come to Palm Springs. Very good. Lots of trails and clean. WE always get a sandwich at our nearby deli and a bottle of wine and have a picnic here. Well worth it.

We read previous reviews and decided to go there to walk to the waterfalls. After the falls, we looked down into the palm canyon and thought we'd hike down. So glad we did!!! I had never been to a true oasis and this was gorgeous! Worth the walk down and up. The path down/up is smooth - no scrambling over... More

Well worth the $9 admission ... a true Oasis experience... Very popular Note: there are actually 3 canyons in the Indian Canyon area: Palm, Andreas, and Murray. Palm is the most visited and has the Trading Post. Parking can be tough if it is busy, Restrooms are portapots and no running water. Shaded picnic areas above and in the canyon... More

Probably the best attraction of the unique Indian Caverns. We are talking about a perfect blend of hiking, walking, scenery, pictures, picniking. The trails are impeccably maintained & the main (easy) trail leads you right down to the floor of the canyon. It is for you to then decide how much additional hiking you want to do beyond the amazing... More

We spent a few hours walking around on a couple different trails. The palm oasis area was particularly interesting since neither of us had seen a oasis. Very nice trails -- some more difficult than we could handle.

Whenever we get to the area, we hit this up for a day of hiking. Yes, it costs to get in, but seeing the natural palm canyons hidden in the desert is worth it. All level of hiking available, and depending on the time of year water level will vary, so be prepared.

Read about this in the tour book and wasn't sure what to expect. It looks like a moonscape driving in but once you get to the canyon, it was amazing. I'm from the east coast and this whole desert thing is so fascinating to me. We walked a little over a mile into Palm canyon before turning around and then... More
