We hiked. It was fun. There were also people coming with horses as well. We preferred hiking. Every time we passed an oasis, we had to cross the water. Sometimes it was quite funny. We cross at least several oasis. Later we had to climb a mountain and we didn't see the seven sisters. They were there. We had to go at the left side and we could see the waterfalls. P.S. We had to come back through the oasis. We had fun!

Part of the Agua Caliente Indian Canyons, this trail offers a quintessential desert experience. Fairly flat throughout, Murray Canyon is a good hike for all ages as long as everyone is wearing hiking shoes. The peaceful serenity is only broken by the sounds of babbling brooks that hikers must cross over. Most of the shade is found among the palm trees by the rushing streams which is where we stopped for a picnic lunch. Lots of desert wildflowers can be found near the streams as well. There are times the trail hugs tightly against humongous boulders of sedimentary rock and other times where it opens up into fields of grass. There is nothing like trekking across a barren desert landscape and, after a long, satisfying hike, ending up in a lush canyon oasis!

There was no better way to spend a beautiful February day in the Indian Canyons. The start of the trail is easy, but very scenic and photographic. As you begin to climb into the canyon, pay attention to where you place your feet as the trail is uneven, with many rocks and other natural obstacles. We counted 14 crossings of the river/creek. Ultimately as you approach the falls you are scrambling over a narrow rocky trail above a gorge, which if you are a bit squeamish, could be problematic. Ultimately, the beauty, the experience and the photographs are well worth it.

We loved this hike. It includes many stream crossings, huge palm trees, and a waterfall. It was and to find the top of the falls as the trails are not marked. It costs 9 to enter Indian canyon

This is also an equestrian trail and although we saw no horses, the evidence was everywhere. Other trails are humans only and I would recommend staying away from this one.
