One of the great places to see in Southern California with a breathtaking Oasis that provides picnicking areas near the creek. This trail is shaded with a mile of Palm Tree along both sides with a stream running parallel through the middle. Midway a must see incredible rock formations. One of the best hiking trails in the valley.

The walk was very pretty, the size of the palms was unbelievable. I liked the Oasis too

Beautiful hike if done in the spring with wild flowers in abundance and ranging across the rainbow. Fortunate enough to see a desert turtle and a plethora of lizards. I believe this is a real gem of a hike!

This is a nice shaded (mostly) trail along a canyon just outside of Palm Springs. The full length of the trail is something like 15 miles one way, but the oasis and lower end of the canyon is a short walk.
