Palm Canyon contains the world’s largest California palm oasis and is the ancestral home of the Atcitcem Clan of the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians, who have lived here for countless centuries. The oasis is one of the most spectacular sights in the Palm Springs vicinity. If you can only see only one of the many oases described in this book, choose Palm Canyon. The tribe charges a modest admission fee, which supports rangers and trail maintenance. Palm Canyon extends 15 miles all the way up to Highway 74 high in the Santa Rosa Mountains, but the first mile has many of the best sights. This loop starts at the road’s end on Hermits Bench, follows the floor of the canyon south for 1 mile through the palms, and then returns via the Victor Trail along a ridge overlooking the canyon.
