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!

Hiked this trial back in March 21, 2013, It’s one of the best trails in the Palm Springs. Nice place to have a picnic. Amazing to see the kind of shade these Palm Trees create when they are clustered close together. Anybody planning to hike this trail doesn’t forget to bring your picnic basket.

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.
