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.

Probably would just go there and back instead of the loop.

Need to stay out of creek bed, loose sand makes more difficult

Good for beginners. Our and back, Visitors Center is informative and worth some time.

This is a large family friendly hike. We have 5 children under 10, and we all enjoy the trail.

Did this hike and Hermann's hike together in March with the wild flowers. LOVED IT - only draw back is the hike back along the road. Best is to drive 2 cars.
