Indian Canyons Tours

star-5
16 Reviews
Indian Canyons
Some of the best hiking near Palm Springs—and in the deserts of California—can be found at Indian Canyons, which is located at the western edge of Palm Springs. The land is owned and protected by the Agua Caliente Cahuilla Indians, who settled in the Palm Springs area centuries ago. Today, these people diligently care for the trails and invite visitors from near and far to experience the stunning desert scenery. 
 
There are three primary hikes in the Indian Canyons: Palm Canyon, Andreas Canyon and Murray Canyon. All three are thought to be easy to moderate trips, but more advanced hikers can combine different hikes and take small paths with greater elevation gains up the mountains. Some of the features of the hikes include waterfalls, panoramic views and of course, the sprawling desert landscapes. All of the trails are clearly marked. 

Practical Info

There is a fee of $9 per person to enter the Indian Canyons, which open at 8 a.m. and close at 5 p.m. There are bathrooms and picnic tables at the entrance for public use. When hiking in the desert, always make sure to bring as much water as you can carry, as well as sunscreen. Be aware of signs of heat exhaustion and stroke. 
Address: 38520 S Palm Canyon Drive, Palm Springs, California, USA
Hours: 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. daily. July-September open only Friday-Sunday
Admission: Adults $9, Seniors (62+) $7, Children (6-12) $5
