Indian Canyons hiking trails are comprised of three unique canyons, each with their own special attributes. Some flat, some with spectacular rock outcroppings. Ideal for larger groups or those requiring large, open spaces.


Tahquitz Canyon is more rugged than Indian Canyons, and features the serene Tahquitz Falls, a spring-fed waterfall. Tahquitz requires more effort to hike into, but the location is unlike anything else in Southern California.


Indian Canyons Golf Resort features two beautifully manicured courses, each with distinct personalities, and surrounded on three sides by breathtaking mountain vistas. It is known for its wind-free environment and unparalleled views of the desert landscape.
