Stepping into a palm tree oasis, imagining what it may have been like 400 years ago, makes this trek spectacular. Not a hard hike, do the loop from the trading post, come back in Victor trail. Early morning start keeps you clear of the folks...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!...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...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...More

I'm sorry I don't know, we use timeshare trades or VRBO (vacation rental by owner) for our stays of a week at a time. Maybe VRBO or air B&B?

From the downtown area of Palm Springs, just go south on S. Palm Canyon Drive until you get to Indian Canyons- follow the signs. It's probably a 10-to-15-minute drive. I think there are brochures in town with directions, or... More
