Need to Know
Per-person fees charged to enter "Indian Canyons." In 2022 it was $12 per adult, $7 for seniors (62+).
After entering the Indians Canyons area (admission charged), it's a short paved spur road to the dirt parking lots and picnic area. Some archaeological remains (mortars in a large flat rock) are at the edge of the NW parking lot. The first half of the trail is on the north side of the creek, mostly shaded by the many tall palm trees in the canyon.
A very small waterfall is near the top of the trail, where a wooden bridge crosses the stream. The trail back down is on an exposed slope south of the creek, with almost no shade but beautiful views of the palm-filled canyon.
Flora & Fauna
Lot of natural fan palm trees; other plants and critters typical of the desert Southwest.
