Tahquitz Canyon

Learn about the legend surrounding this Native American land.

Tahquitz Canyon in Palm Springs, California

There's good hiking in the tribal lands of Tahquitz Canyon, operated by the Agua Caliente band of Cahuilla Indians. Once inside, you can enjoy a ranger-led tour or opt to explore the two-mile trail on your own. Make sure to watch the film about Tahquitz, a Cahuilla shaman who is known for stealing the souls of the unsuspecting.

Take note that the trail is steep and rocky, and there is very little shade so dress accordingly. Also, there are no restroom facilities or water fountains — go prepared!
