Tahquitz Canyon Falls
500 West Mesquite Avenue
Desert Mountain Hike to WaterfallThis hike is only a short distance from downtown Palm Springs, but within minutes of starting, you feel as if you are very far from civilization. The hike winds over the desert rocks, through occasional patches of greenery (including a "tunnel" of tall bush), finally ending at a 30' waterfall.
It can get very hot, and having at least one bottle of water is required by the rangers, who monitor the path entrance.
