Native California fan palms thrive in many locations but rarely in such numbers as in the canyons of the Indio Hills. Here, along a line where the San Andreas fault captures groundwater that nurtures the palms, is a wild parkland which is part of the adjacent Coachella Valley Preserve. The park contains some fine palm groves that include Hidden, Pushawalla, Briska, Macomber and Horseshoe palms. The nearest groves are relatively easy to reach from the trailhead and parking area 4-miles north of Indio.

Best at the beginning of March when all the wild flowers are blooming

A steady hike with views and some incline. Some of it goes through deep sand, like being at the beach!

If you don't like walking in sand don't go here. Took the wrong path to start. Just followed footprints but obviously they ended up lost as well. When you get around the first hill on your right don't follow the main path to the right instead head straight towards the oasis. There are a few signs when you get to oasis. Hopefully you have better luck then us.

nice trail... good clime to it.. hard to follow though

The views get better and better as you go up. This is an easy hike, and great for those who like a gradual climb, and with temps in the 60's and sunny, it makes this hike truly enjoyable.
