  • Are there any hiking tips?

    There most certainly are hiking tips and you’ll want to follow them closely. Tahquitz Canyon has a tiny amount of shade and it will be hot. You’ll want to make sure to have a hat, sunscreen, and plenty of water as there are no water fountains. In addition, good hiking or athletic shoes are a must. For your safety, footwear with leather soles or high heels, as well as flip flops, are not recommended.
  • Are there are any restrictions?

    The following rules are strictly enforced so please follow them. You must always stay on Tahquitz Canyon Trail. Climbing on the rocks and climbing above Tahquitz Falls is prohibited. In addition, you’re not allowed to swim, smoke or litter. No alcoholic beverages or pets are permitted, either. And if you’re considering taking photographs for commercial purposes, you’ll need to get a permit.
