All reviews palm trees andreas canyon trading post seven sisters great hiking an oasis running water lots of water mile loop parking lot fan palms beautiful scenery agua caliente entrance fee great place to hike bring water easy trail
We spent a day walking a couple of the loops and it was enjoyable. $7 a person to get it, for sure do the 1 mile Andreas loop, and then the 4-5 mile Murray Canyon to Seven Sisters waterfall. The scenery is great and you...More
We had a nice walk, but several hikes are also possible, some that would take a full day and proper equipment. Plan ahead by chekcing on line prior to going. Slow, slow, slow entry via single entry kiosk.
I can’t say enough about this attraction in the desert. My husband and I are new to the area and were excited about hiking in Joshua Tree but I saw a blurb about Indian Canyon so we decided to check it out. My only regret...More
We have just spent a day enjoying exploring the hidden canyons and desert pathways at Indian Canyons. No words can be adequate to describe the breath taking beauty of the waterside areas amongst the tall palms. I wonder if this area is how Palm Springs...More
This was a great hike for us, 1.5 hours up and 1 hour down. The map was unclear so we just went up and down. We thought we were going to do a loop but couldn't find it. The trails were not marked well either....More
Just 10 minuted derive from town takes you to a different world. It fits the name of Palm Springs. Spent about 2 hours for easy hiking on Palm Trail. It was very nice to hike along palm trees in the desert mountains. You could spend...More
Indian Canyons has various hiking trails to fit your level of difficulty! Beautiful scenery and wonderful hiking experiences. Our particular group had seniors and youth and all were able to complete the hike in great shape. The beautiful scenery makes the Indian Canyons a perfect...More

Part of the short (1 mile) walk is past a shady stream, so the heat isn't a problem for the whole hike. Great opportunity to experience a real oasis. Having said that - go early in the day. Very worth it. We were then in... More
Part of the short (1 mile) walk is past a shady stream, so the heat isn't a problem for the whole hike. Great opportunity to experience a real oasis. Having said that - go early in the day. Very worth it. We were then in 107 degree heat - and it was still a great walk. There are longer walks led by rangers. We didn't have time - but look into that

I drove out to Twenty Nine Palms from LA two weeks ago. It took about three hours. Palm Springs is closer, so count on at least two hours on the road. It really depends where in LA you are coming from and if you are going weekend or weekday, rush hour or not, because the traffic in Los Angeles itself is the worst and can add a lot of time to the trip.
If you have only the one day, I would initiate the drive before dawn, to avoid traffic and take advantage of the most daylight hours.
It really depends what you want to do.
If you are a shopper, you can spend all day shopping. There are all sorts of upscale malls and stores, as well as quite a few of my favorite bargain shopping places when I am in the United States--Ross for Less.
If you are a sightseer, many people take the tramway up the mountain.
If you are a nature lover but not a hiker, there is a great botanical gardens.
Myself, I had come to hike.
So, I spent the day hiking in the oases in the canyons.
What I would recommend is Tahquitz Canyon in the morning and Indian Canyons thereafter. You can get a coupon at Indian Canyons that will give you a couple of dollars off at Tahquitz, but Tahquitz is a climb and not a great idea to do second, in the heat of the day. Though you could--it is still winter and cooler and people do.
If you want to do several things, start with the canyons--they close at 5 and you have to be out well before then.
