Palm Springs, Palm Canyon Hike

Palm Springs – Palm Canyon Hike

Second rule of travel (behind sampling local fruit): take a hike! Palm Springs has a surprising number of options for hiking, but we settled on the Palm Canyon hike in the Indian Canyons Reserve. ($9/each to get in, but worth it… Thanks for sharing your land!)

When we arrived we were greeted by a solar halo – a really cool weather event that wraps a rainbow around the sun! After reveling in that for a minute, we followed the trail through a strange and sudden canyon of palm trees in the middle of the desert, and then on a loop that leads past scenic overlooks, cacti & endless switchbacks before reaching the Trading Post again. The trail is pretty stellar, and could be even better provided you bring a lot of water (we didn’t) and don’t go at noon (we did). Check out my pix!
