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.

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.

We loved this trail! Just wished we could go further past the falls. Very easy, next time we want to take our 4 year old granddaughter

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

This trail says no bikes about a quarter mile up the trail. Looks like a great hike.

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!
