On a whim we decided we needed to be a bit more active after having taken the tramway ride and the Tahquitz Canyon seemed to be an easy/moderate hike. Glad we decided to be more active as the Tahquitz 'is home to a spectacular 60-foot waterfall, rock art, ancient irrigation systems, native wildlife, and plants'. Just like the pamphlet said. :) Located at the entrance to the canyon, the Tahquitz Canyon Visitor Center is a must stop - and I encourage you to have a chat with the well informed staff. Also take them up on their offer of borrowing a hiking/walking stick - you may need it for the way up - especially if you have a shorter leg span. We met 2 rangers on our treck- well monitored trail- we truly enjoyed the Tahquitz Canyon. The helpful staff also informed us our orange wrist bands would get us a dollar off our Indian Canyon hike - nicely done!

Be sure to watch the video before or after taking the hike to understand the legend. Hike is about 2 miles return and at the end you find a small but pretty waterfall. The hike is well marked and fairly easy.

This is a great hike. It is a loop with a waterfall at top of loop. It is not a hard hike but going is more uphill. The path is not paved so you need to climb up rocks and walk on uneven surfaces.

This is nice hike of about 2 miles that scrambles up a canyon to to a pretty 50 foot waterfall. Is it worth doing - yes. Is it worth $12.50 a person - no. They should offer a 2 day pass for $20 that allows access to this and Indian Canyons - that would be a fairer value. I just felt that this was not worth it.
