Palm Springs Hiking Indian Canyons

Palm Springs California offers many options for relaxation away from the big city, but few know about the Indian Canyon trails that offer a true break from the hustle and bustle of the city and are a great alternative if you don’t have the time to visit nearby Joshua Tree National Monument. Creeks and waterfalls offer a chance to sit and enjoy a lunch after a stress-relieving hike. Three areas are available and each offers a unique experience. Be sure to pay close attention, as many endangered wildlife can be seen along the way. Hundreds of years ago, the Agua Caliente Cahuilla Indians settled in the region of Palm Springs. Communities developed around the fresh water supply, and ample hunting was available with the abundant wildlife. Read the fill Palm Springs Hiking Indian Canyons article.
