About This Trail

[Total: 3    Average: 4.3/5]

Part of the Indian Canyons, Tahquitz canyon is a beautiful desert canyon that offers an oasis and large waterfall. The trail loops around the canyon and showcases several Native American landmarks and artifacts. You will see many beautiful cascades of the stream, stunning rock formations, as well as the highlight of the journey: a 60 foot waterfall!

Beware: Rattlesnakes are a common sight here. It is better to go earlier in the day due to extreme heat in the canyon.

My name is Nicole Dominick, and I’ve been hiking with Hike it Baby since May 2016 with my daughter. She is now 4.5 years old and has hiked over 400 miles! She has been carried for most of those miles, but we enjoy every journey. We were both born and raised in Southern CA but now live in Colorado Springs, CO.
