INDIAN CANYONS JEEP & HIKING TOUR

Climb aboard one of our Big Red Jeeps for a visit to the ancestral home of the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians, where stunning rock formations and the contrasting greens of magnificent fan palms and more than 150 species of plants beckon travelers to these lush palm oases.

  • Your professional guide will educate and entertain you with stories about the history, culture, lifestyle, and legends of the Cahuilla people.
  • In Andreas Canyon, enjoy a guided 1-mile hike on a tranquil trail along the banks of Andreas Creek as your guide describes the ceremonies and legends of the Cahuilla people and explains how they used the desert’s plants for survival.
  • View one of the largest natural palm oases in North America from the rim of Palm Canyon.
  • Enjoy a short walk to a hidden water cave where the water flows most of the year.
  • At the end of your adventure, relax, refresh, and shop for unique gifts and souvenirs at the Indian Trading Post which features Indian art and artifacts, books, jewelry, pottery, baskets, weavings, refreshments, and more.

PLEASE NOTE: This is NOT an off-road tour. If you are looking for an off-road / 4WD experience, we recommend one of our San Andreas Fault Jeep Tours or our Mecca Hills / Painted Canyon Jeep Tour.

THINGS TO BRING:

  • Wear closed-toe shoes with rubber soles (such as tennis shoes or hiking boots). Sandals and shoes with high heels are not recommended.
  • Wear comfortable clothing – we recommend you dress in layers as desert temperatures can change quickly. In the cooler months (November through March), we suggest you bring a light sweater or jacket.
  • Don’t forget your camera or video camera – the photo opportunities are amazing!
