The Indian Canyons are a beautiful retreat from the sometimes glitzy atmosphere of Palm Springs. When the streams are running, children enjoy splashing in the water. It's also a popular area for picnics. Visitors now have the chance to see the “Witch of Tahquitz Canyon,” an eerie shadow that’s occasionally cast on the walls of the canyon.
Exceptional. A great outing for nature buffs, at a very reasonable price ($6 per adult). The scenery is spectacular, be sure to view micro ecologies as well as macro ones. Lots of great trails from easy to experienced. The Victor trail does a nice loop. Took us about 3 hours, but we stopped for lots of pictures and a picnic lunch. Didn't see a whole lot of wildlife, but there were lots of hummingbirds and lizards.
Trails are clean, people very friendly. Came across several 'rangers' patrolling the trails, so help is always nearby.
Not good for small children, lots of potential hazards with some steep, loose sandy trails and sheer cliffs.
