"This short, scenic loop should be a part of any trip to the Indian Canyons. It’s especially good for families, bird-watchers, and anyone who wants to experience the serenity of the canyons in a short period of time. The well-marked path leads past sheer rock walls and a year-round stream shaded by California fan palms to a seasonal waterfall and 1925 clubhouse once used by local hunters, then gives way to wide-open desert landscape."

"Andreas Canyon contains the world’s second largest California fan palm oasis and is the ancestral home of the Paniktum clan of the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians. This short trail follows Andreas Creek through the palm-filled canyon for a half mile, then returns along the south rim with views into the canyon. Friday through Sunday at 1 p.m., rangers lead interpretive hikes through the canyon for a nominal fee. Inquire at the entrance station for more information and to confirm times." Read more
