This trail is at the Indian Canyons on the Agua Caliente Indian reservation in Palm Springs CA. Trail starts at the Palm Canyon Parking Lot. You'll start on the Palm Canyon trail which leads you through a beautiful Fan Palm Oasis. You'll stay on the trail for about two miles and then make a left on Dry Walsh trail that will lead you for a little less then a mile until you come to East Fork Loop Trail. After about a half a mile you'll come to a fork between East Fork Loop Trail and East Fork Trail. Stay left on East Fork Trail which leads you through a wonderful small canyon and a dried up river bed. Continue on until you meet back up with the Palm Canyon.

The start of the trail on Palm Canyon trail was stunning walking through the Oasis and seeing all the Palm Trees. Once you pop out of the canyon and on your way to Dry wash it's a little baron but still beautiful if you like the desert. The walk through East Fork Trail was nice which is essentially a Canyon with a dried up river bed. There's a couple spots where you need to climb small waterfalls but obviously with no water and nothing high or difficult. The best part was when we neared the end of our hike trying to make it back in time before the Park closed and we're back in the Palm Canyon we spotted a family of four Big Horn Sheep that were coming down for some water in the Oasis who were rather close. I'd say within a 100ft.
