Murray Canyon Trail to Seven Falls is a gorgeous 3.7-mile out & back hike near Palm Springs. This trail feels like a magical oasis with its own nature and vibe. Get lost between palm trees and chill out by the creek. Explore the waterfall that feels absolutely unreal in oasis environment. Chill in a shady spot and soak all that desert energy. Lots of photo opportunities!

Rated best hike in SoCal!
I highly highly recommend the 2-mile (one way) Murray Canyon Trail. This was the highlight of my day! Right away I was greeted by so many blooming wildflowers over the landscape. Once I reached the creek I saw many palms that stretched on for a long distance. I got to see the Seven Sisters Waterfall which was a good size fall. On my way back I took a spur trail towards the Coffman Trail and West Fork Trail. This hike has elevation gain but the views along the way and at the top are the best views here at Indian Canyons! As you ascent higher you can see many more blooming wildflowers 10× on the mountains and ridges. Plus, you can see the trail of palms along the Murray Canyon Trail and the city of Palm Springs in the distance. I am so glad I did these hikes in March. Spring is in the air!!!! Don't forget to praise the Creator for all these wonderful creations. Enjoy and have the time of your life!!!! 🙂
Beautiful hike our 5 year old loved it! Cool to trek through the desert and come upon the incredible oasis with the stream running through. Our daughter really enjoyed crossing the stream on the rocks/log bridges. There is a section about 3/4 of the way in that requires a bit of a scramble/more careful hiking up a relatively steep rocky path. Our 2 year old enjoyed running along the path as well but put her in the hiking backpack to cross the streams and to go up the steeper parts of the path. Imagine this would be more challenging to do hotter weather...esp with kids.
