Fun desert Hike

Nice hike in the desert. Lots of things to see. Start off early and bring water. It can get really hot.

My daddy always said "dress for the weather" and for this occasion. I do not recommend white lace anklets, Keds tennis shoes, Daisy Dukes short. I do recommend hat, sunglasses. Hydration pack, and plenty of sun screen. Some trails have areas where one needs to scramble..

Not steep, good variety of scenery. Approximately 1.5 hrs round trip if you make it to the waterfall.

Six of us did the Murray Canyon hike at Indian Canyons in February. We all thought it was a great hike with beautiful scenery. This hike follows Murray Creek, a seasonal stream, to Seven Sisters Waterfall. You cross the brook several times over stepping stones which aren't difficult to walk on, but some of us did manage to get our... More

desert oasis with many palms, and desert hikes, large parking where you can drive 400 yards down in the park and park in the shade among the palms, great for handicapped, elderly or lazy, $16 per person to enter Indian canyon where Murray and Palm canyon areas are located,

We picked this trail because there was water still flowing in it. Beautiful stands of Palms and other vegetation and wildlife as a result. Lovely waterfall at top and many restful places to stop for lunch.

Nice trail through the desert to an oasis in the valley. Really enjoyed the hike but did not like the fact that you must pay $9/person to hike it. There are free trails in the area that are just as good. We will not go back.
