Inspirock Rating:
4.2/5 based on 380+ reviews on the web
Inhabited for thousands of years by the Cahuilla tribe, Tahquitz Canyon remains part of the tribe's legacy and is now overseen by the tribe's Agua Caliente Band. Walk the 3.2 km (2 mi) hiking trail through the canyon to Tahquitz Falls. The falls collect in a shallow pool you can wade through. The water also feeds an oasis of palms and desert growth that lines the trail. If you hike to the falls, bring drinking water, sunscreen, and a towel to dry your feet after wading. Plan to see Tahquitz Canyon and other attractions that appeal to you using our Palm Springs itinerary planner.
