Hike: Palm Springs – Andreas Canyon

Andreas Canyon is one of the Indian Canyons in Palm Springs. The short and easy trail around Andreas Creek is a welcome break from the usual desert hikes. It’s lush and green. It’s an oasis.

The 1-mile hike around Andreas Canyon

There is a short and easy trail along Andreas Creek. It’s about 1 mile long and easy to follow and good for all levels. One side of the creek is shaded, the other fairly open. Bear that in mind when hiking during the hotter months.
