The Palm Springs neighborhood of Chino Canyon is north of downtown and takes its name from one of the steepest canyons on the continent in the San Jacinto Mountains. Chino Canyon real estate has homes and condos that are conveniently located ten minutes from most of your daily amenities.

Recently constructed, large, modern estates share the neighborhood with older mid-century modern and Mediterranean style homes.

As the neighborhood climbs up the canyon’s alluvial fan, you get some fantastic views of the Coachella Valley and its surrounding mountains. And as you climb, so do the prices. The architecture and landscaping blend with innumerable, huge boulders washed down from the canyon, producing dramatic structures and fascinating gardens and grounds.

Minutes away from the famous Palm Springs Tram, Chino Canyon residents can take advantage of monthly passes on the tram, which takes them more than 8,000 feet up a steep canyon in minutes to a mountain station where endless hiking trails fan out into an alpine forest. Enjoy snow in winter and a 20- or 30-degree temperature drop in summer.

Chino Canyon homes and condos are located on fee land that is owned.
