  • a great hike. hard to believe there is such lush palm trees and river in the middle of the desert. we hiked in along the river (Palm Canyon), then circled back along a ridge (Victor Trail). both were stunning. I'd go backwards next time: the Victor Trail was exposed and hot and sunny: great views and lots of lizards. the shade of palm canyon would have been nice to do AFTER the sun of that hike. Victor Trail was less crowded than Palm Canyon, but there were lots of people there. both were easy trails. Probably 3 miles round trip. Just bring lots of water.
  • Beautiful hike among tall palm trees and an oasis like stream.
  • The negatives first: entry is a bit pricey and the area at the beginning of the hike shows the wear and tear or a lot of visitation. Be aware that no pets--even service animals-are allowed. And plan to take off your boots and wade if there's been any rain recently and you want to hike many of the trails on the far side of the river. Now the positives. There are miles of trails to hike, with just spectacular views, and a lot of solitude once you put a mile or so between you and the parking area. And all very close to Palm Springs.
  • Nice and easy hike on very beautiful and scenic trails.
  • Wonderful place to hike, enjoy water falls, connect with nature the kids loved it will be going back again before summer hits!
