Tahquitz and Indian Canyons Hikes


The Tahquitz Canyon hike was 1.8 miles roundtrip and took about 1 Ĺ hours with the ranger.  After several days of rain, the 60-foot waterfall was well worth the hike. 








Palm Canyon Trail, which begins near the trading post run by the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians, goes for 15 miles up into the mountains.  To one side are the Santa Rosa Mountains and to the other are the San Jacinto Mountains.  For the first mile or so of the hike, the trail meanders among the numerous California fan palms along the stream in the canyon.  After a mile, the trail climbs out of the canyon into more typical desert terrain.


At Murray Canyon, itís a 2-mile hike up to the 7 Sisters waterfalls.  Andreas Canyon was a 1-mile round-trip loop hike that was quite pleasant.
