Band of Cahuilla Indians have re-opened the Indian Canyons on November 18, 2013. The Canyons, an approximate 56-square mile area that includes more than 60 miles of trails, attract more than 125,000 visitors a year to enjoy the scenic trails, plants, wildlife and cultural sites. Palm Canyon is considered the world’s largest oasis of California Fan Palms. The world-renowned Canyons are listed on the National Register of Historic Places and are the ancestral home of the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians. See all hiking trails in Palm Springs.
The Tribe closed
the Canyons on Sept. 5 after heavy flood damage from flash floods caused
extensive damage. Fast moving water from the heavy rains carried down trees,
boulders, and mud damaging trails, roads and access to portions of the Indian
Canyons.The Canyons were
also closed temporarily earlier this year when more than 6,000 acres burned on
the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians reservation during the Mountain Fire
