We spent a few hours wandering Indian Canyons before an evening flight home, and my only regret is that we didn't budget more time here. I would make this a full-afternoon think (like you would joshua tree or my san jacinto). $10-ish/pp entrance fee, gets you access to many areas and walking trails. The trails vary in distance and difficult... More

If you drive up and sit in a line, do not turn around and go away. The line was only about 10-15 minutes to get to the gate and pay, and then it was no trouble to drive and park freely. Note: When we went, the machines were down and they were only accepting cash. Be prepared with $9/person. TIP:... More

This easy hike felt almost mystical at times. Part of the trail runs along a creek that has a small waterfall, the palms were thick and enormous and the boulders on the other side of the trail were huge. It was easy to imagine a dinosaur appearing, like in the movies. The early start we got the hike payed off... More

There are several trails here with varying difficulty. We chose an easy one called the Andreas Canyon. It was a really nice, easy walk through the canyon. The floor of the canyon had a creek rushing through and lots of palm trees. It was a mile long and not difficult. I wouldn't recommend it to someone with a cane or... More

I'd never seen a palm oasis before, so maybe this isn't anything special, but I absolutely loved our visit here. There are many short/long hikes that can be done, and the short ones are perfect. We visited Palm Canyon (walking below among the palms is surreal!) and the loop trail at Andreas Canyon (I highly recommend doing the full loop!).... More

This was our first visit and it was better than expected. Great sights, trails, helpful rangers. There is a trading post, picnic tables and porta potties. The rangers give regular talks and walks. There is no food available so bring your own as well extra bottled water. Admission is $9 per person, $7 for seniors and free for military personnel... More

Had a nice hike at the Andreas Canyon followed by a leisurely picnic in their shaded picnic area. It was a photographer's dream with unique rock formations, the creek and beautiful palms all along the path.

My family wanted to go there to see where the palm trees were and where they the same palm trees that were in the old movies with John Wayne. I told him yes I took them there, they love the The big palm trees and they love shopping at the trading post

A very well run park, great diversity. A bird lovers, and or photographers paradise. Take the longer hikes, they are less busy. The rangers are very informative and polite. If you like the outdoors and hiking, do this park over two or three days, it's well worth it.
