Hiking in the Tahquitz Canyons Apr 24, 2016
I could write a long article about the history of Tahquitz Canyon, but there are plenty of articles and reviews on the internet to read for that. What I wanted to talk about was my experience visiting this famous place.

The cost is around $12 and the hike is one of the most recommended hikes in Palm Springs. contrary to most people say, it is relatively shaded and if you go early enough, you maybe able to do it without even seeing the sun. It's a pretty easy hike we could have almost done it with flip flops and if you don't have proper shoes you would be turned away. The path is well designed with steps to climb. At the end of it. you will have a beautiful waterfall where you can relax and enjoy before taking pictures. Then you can take the loop trail to go down. There are several landmarks you get to enjoy so please ask for a map at the desk.

The hike takes about 2h to accomplish if you stop and take pictures and enjoy the area otherwise an hour would be just enough. It's beautiful, peaceful and you would really enjoy if you are in the area. If you want to read more about it. I have written the whole experience here.
