No visit to Palm Springs is complete without stopping to explore and enjoy the beauty of the Santa Rosa and San Jacinto Mountains. These picturesque desert mountains are home to a unique assortment of plant and animal life--some species found nowhere else. The Peninsular bighorn sheep are among the most iconic species to call these mountains home. These sheep are a vital part of the desert ecology; their sparse numbers make a sighting a rare and amazing privilege.

Staying in one of our Palm Springs vacation rentals and want to find the best hiking in the valley? Hiking is a wonderful and healthy activity for everyone - singles, couples, groups and families; it's a world of discovery that reveals the wonders of nature. But hiking the Tahquitz Canyon and Falls is even more meaningful because you'll be walking in the footsteps of early local history.
The Tahquitz Canyon is one of three canyons in the Palm Springs area where the Agua Caliente Cahuilla Indians settled centuries ago. The canyon was perfect for a settlement, with plenty of water and animals as well as fertile soil for growing crops like corn, squash, beans and melons. In the late 19th century, the US government used ten miles of this land for the Southern California Railroad, and today the canyon is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
