Indian Canyons are located about 5 miles south of downtown Palm Springs. There is a $9 charge to enter which gives you access to 3 nice hikes and a gift shop. The featured hike is Palm Canyon and it is beautiful. The total hike is about 9 miles but the first 2 miles are the what is done by most visitors and are mostly in the shade of hundreds of palm trees. The other two hikes are also nice. If you have never experienced hiking through a grove of palms this will be a great experience for you.
