PALM SPRINGS, CA – Palm Springs is home to several gorgeous hiking trails – and Tahquitz Canyon is one that you won’t want to miss!

Tahquitz Canyon is one of the most beautiful and culturally sensitive areas of the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians Reservation. It features spectacular mountain views and scenery, rock art, native wildlife and plants, and there’s even a gorgeous 60ft waterfall at the end of the trail!

Hiking Tips  

  1. Start Early!
    While this is considered an easy hike, it is 3.5 miles and can take 2-3 hours. Start early before the day gets too hot!
  2. Bring Plenty of Water
    There are no water fountains on this trail, so come prepared.
  3. Dress appropriately and don’t forget the sunscreen!
