We love this place for hiking. It is just beautiful with well marked hiking trails. Please wear hiking boots and bring water. Plenty of places to stop and rest but there are also plenty of challenging places to climb.

We did the Palm Trail with a ranger on a very pleasant 75 degree day. We also did one of the other trails and Palm Canyon our binoculars for birding. Go early if you can and Palm Canyon water and lunch to enjoy in the canyon.

Off trail continuation hikes are possible, across to the palms and further up the main canyon. Length: 0. The seven mile gravel track to Palm Canyon that branches east from US 95 across the edge of the wide, empty La Posa Plain is flat but rather bumpy, and the drive can take over half an hour.
The canyon is the most visited location within Kofa National Wildlife Refugepartly since it is the last place in the state where native California palm trees grow in their natural habitat. The last mile of the approach road climbs gradually and ends at a parking area, high enough to enjoy views over a huge area of the surrounding Sonoran Desert. Around one hundred trees are found in a narrow, southeast-facing, side ravine further up the canyon; they are quite well-hidden and only visible when close by.
A half mile path - steep and uneven in places but not at all difficult - leads along the canyon to a viewpoint below the trees, Palm Canyon. To Palm Canyon closer, it is necessary to scramble down into the canyon and up the hillside opposite. Looking at trees is the only obvious activity hereabouts, though it is quite easy to continue climbing up the main canyon and explore more of the rocky surroundings, at the edge of the Kofa Mountains.

We hiked up to the Fan Palms on the trail and had a great hike. The views of the valley and the canyon are truly awesome. We took our time and 45 minutes after the start we were in palm haven.
Its surprising what you can find in the deserts. Glad we took the time to visit. Read more. Date of experience: November
