Great trail, easy with couple slightly moderate (short sections). Winter & Spring, lots of water! Be prepared to get wet. weekends only after the 4th of July. $9 per person entry, Annual pass $99 good for calendar year from purchase date. Sections of horse trail mixed in, watch for the poop. Lots of shade after first desert section. 3 hour hike (out and back) at very easy pace with stops for snacks and pictures.

Easy hike with beautiful scenery! Trail is right next to the water and the vegetation and sounds make you fell like you're in a tropical oasis. During the hike you cross over the water quite a few times so you're shoes may get wet. Definitely going to do this again.

Beautiful walk. An easy hike. The waterfall itself is not much but the walk getting to it makes the trip worthwhile, especially when you get past the section allowing horses. Lots of shade and running water make this a great little hike on a warm day.

Started early (~8:15am) and we had the trail to ourselves. Beautiful views from inside the canyon for the first mile followed by nice shade within the oasis. ~2-2.5 hours there and back. Bring cash for the entry fee.

Did this hike on Christmas Eve. Beautiful, easy trail with a couple of short rocky sections near the end. Lots of stream crossings with rocks for stepping. Took us 2 hours with a brief stop at the end and lots of photos along the way. Waterfall is fairly small but scenery along the whole trail is lovely. There's a fee to enter Indian Canyons and park closes at 5 pm (4 pm Christmas Eve & Day) so going early in the day will help you make the most of your visit! Highly recommend.

Nice trail. Probably wouldn’t bring young kids or elderly. If you plan on going all the way to the waterfall, staying up high makes for easier navigation through the rocks at the end.

Easy to moderate 2 hrs hike in the middle of palm trees, the canyon and a little river. Very nice. I highly recommend !

This trail wasn't my favorite for a few reasons. There were 16 different stream crossings which I wasn't anticipating. I wouldn't have minded, but once you get to the end (indicated by a sign) I saw no waterfall. How did I miss it? I have read other reviews that indicate a waterfall, but I saw nothing so I felt very disappointed, especially after getting pretty wet.

Just starting out but FYI it opens at 8:00 am because it's on Indian Reservation and it's $9 per person. Seniors are $7

Worth the $9/person. Beautiful oasis in the middle of the desert! You might get your shoes wet crossing the river on the slippery rocks.

We visited on the first Wednesday in April. $9 per adult to get in. Sign at the gate indicates no drones, no pets, no service animals . If you go early on a weekday there is no line up and lots of parking. Trailheads are clearly marked for the most part. Agile people will be able to cross the river using the rocks without getting wet but others should be prepared to get wet. Water is no more than ankle-deep at the crossings and really no more than knee-deep at any spot along the river. Very easy trail. A couple of short inclines but nothing unmanageable. Beautiful scenery. You can't actually get right up to the Seven Sisters waterfall. You can only see it from a distance. It is a trail that is shared with riders on horseback so there is lots of horse manure but it is not unmanageable. A genuine oasis and palm grove in the desert. Highly recommended hike!
