Great hiking trails, both short and long distances.

Staff was very helpful regarding trail information. Make sure to take plenty of water. Not a lot of shade once you get beyond a mile of outpost.

With easy to difficult hiking routes, everyone has their opportunity to enjoy the majestic views, scenery of the Andreas Mountain with its streams, botany and various palm tree species.

We visited Agua Caliente Canyon with friends and did some hiking along marked trails that could have used a bit more directional signage. The trip to the Canyon trail is steeply downhill (which, of course, means a steep uphill climb at the end!), marked with a large sign warning that this is a rattlesnake area (only animal we saw was...

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

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
