Palm Springs is this perfect haven for rest and relaxation, but if you are looking for adventure you don’t have to look very far! Indian Canyons are a 25 minute drive from Palm Desert and offer numerous routes that vary in difficulty, time, and environment. Palm, Andreas, and Murray Canyons combined offer countless days of hiking possibilities. We did the Andreas Canyon which offered a very comfortable 1 mile hike through beautiful scenery that included the only fresh running water we saw the whole time we were there. It was incredible to see such a sight in the middle of the blazing hot desert.
