A palm oasis and striking contrast to the overall scenery of the Palm Springs area. Well worth the short easy hike on this trail to experience the different desert landscape.

We hiked here yesterday with our friends and were not disappointed. The weather said that the rain would start at 11, so we rushed over and hiked for a while, leaving just before it started. These are beautiful trails with gorgeous rock formations and palm...More

I'm not much of a hiker, but found this "walk" to be pleasant (not easy and certainly not for those with mobility issues).
