What to Expect
This incredible journey in a classic Big Red Jeep Scramblers (CJ-8's) takes you into the lush palm oasis of the magnificent Indian Canyons of Palm Springs.

Visit the ancestral home of the Agua Caliente band of Cahuilla Indians as your naturalist guide tells you about the history, culture, legends, and stories of the Cahuilla people. Along the way you will learn about historic Rincon Village and the Cahuilla People’s amazing understanding and usage of desert plants.

Enjoy a guided hike on a tranquil trail up Andreas Canyon that winds along a beautiful stream of cascading water features shaded by a canopy of California Fan Palms. At the top of the trail you will emerge above the palms to enjoy a breathtaking view across to the steep cliff walls on the opposite side. During this easy 1-mile trek, you will visit ancient bedrock mortars and see a stunning array of desert flora, ending up at the sacred mound that marks the location of the Cahuilla’s creator, Mukat.

From the rim of Palm Canyon you will be able to see the largest natural palm oasis in the North American hemisphere. Then you will enjoy a short nature walk to a water cave that feeds water into the lush canyon below during the winter and spring.
