If you enjoy hiking, then this is a must!

An extraordinary combination of palm oases and barrel-cacti desert. A feast for the senses. Bring water and decent walking shoes. Sometimes the feet will get wet.

Andreas canyon loop is a good introduction, especially for families with small children, Murray canyon is more solitary, with water falls, and Palm canyon is --well, luscious palm oasis. There was a tribal ranger available for question in the Andreas canyon picnic/parking area, very friendly and very knowledgeable.

I've been coming to these canyons for 52 years. Now we're bringing our grandkids! My husband is a Native American - Choctaw. If anyone in your family is a Native American, bring your tribal card so your whole carload can get in free!

Very interesting to see such a lush little oasis in the desert. Much seems to fed by underground springs. rocky climb down into the canyon from the visitor centre. I would wear good hiking type shoes. Apparently there may be a few rattlesnake in the area so stay on the paths and keep your ears open. I will visit again... More

great for summer or winter hikes. Always bring extra water since there are various trail lengths to choose from.

Indian Canyons is a short drive from Palm Springs and has much to see. I am guessing most people have never seen anything like it. We saw amazing Palm forests, hiking trails from easy to difficult, some shade and some sun. The entry fee is very reasonable and even the food and water at the gift shop are way less... More

It's hard to imagine that up in these canyons there are places of such beauty. The natural Springs feed water into a really nice stream surrounded by palm trees. There are miles of hiking trails - choose which length and difficulty to like. The trading post is staffed by friendly people and lots of Native American gifts.

Entrance fee of $9 allows you access to 3 different canyons. Each has character of their own and a variety of difficulty of trails. The trading post has feeders for hummingbirds. They can and will approach you and peck at some things like glasses (or maybe warning you to back away).
