    syr667 . reviewed Murray Canyon Trail to Seven Falls

    21 days ago

    it is $9 per person into this park, but well worth it I thought. after lunch near the parking area (lots of beautiful palms and picnic tables) we got on the trail.

    you quickly encounter the first stand of palms and the creek. plenty of shade and easy water crossings throughout. we had a nice little swim at the waterfall before making our way back down.

    nice, well marked, well groomed, paved road through the park.

    this is a really good representation of the park. lots of plant life, cool boulder forms, a few birds.

    an easy walk, with a lot of options for scrambling on rocks. this was a great intro to the park.

    this was maybe my favourite walk in Joshua Tree. the valley like area that a good portion goes around the edge of was gorgeous. cool petroglyphs, a bit of an oasis at the dam, and then some nice rock scrambling on the way back out from the dam.

    really nice, easy walk around some great boulder formations. the "real" hall of horrors is worth poking around to find. long, narrow gap between two huge rock faces making for a fun photo op.

    steady unrelenting climb, but well worth the views up top.

    did this walk just before sunset last week, the colors and shadows were incredible.

    found it just a touch difficult to keep the path a couple times, but it was so peaceful that we didn't mind a little doubling back.

    there are a few difficult to climb to vantage points off the trail, but the views over the area were well worth the exploration.

    yes, the skull is around 20 feet from the main road. there will likely be a lot of people scrambling for pictures, but go another 20 feet in from the road and you will find yourself in a 3D labyrinth of boulders.

    the walk is generally pretty easy, but with a lot of options for climbing on stuff. there is a bit of a rest as you walk through the beautiful Jumbo Rocks campsite.

    in our experience, the second half of the loop was nearly empty.

    this is a groomed path, almost like a garden, but full of native plants with informational placards.

    it's a good little leg stretch.

    21 days ago

    not the most epic scenery in Joshua Tree by a margin, but during your short flat walk you will be lost in a forest of cholla. recommend early morning or late afternoon when you get some great light and shadows on the cacti.
