Easy Hike. Saw 4 rattlesnakes. The waterfall is absolutely gorgeous!!! Beautiful views and scenery. Need to do this hike early as it was in the mid-90's by 11:30am.

Short ,but sweet some stair climbing and worth the waterfall!

Gorgeous waterfall. Easy and short hike. Take water. Apply sunscreen.

Easy and short hike. Really cool waterfall at the end of the hike. We arrived around 10:30 and there was a good amount of parking. Took about an hour from start to finish.

$12.50 to hike, at least one water bottle per person or you’re not allowed on the trail. Really easy hike, and the waterfall was beautiful. So much water! Got there early around 8:30 and there was plenty of parking but when we left around 10:30 there was not as much parking and larger crowds. Takes about one hour to hike but we took two hours to hike because we took our time and stopped at the fall for a while. The trail guide also has some interesting markers along the trail to stop at and learn a little bit about the history

Most beautiful hike I’ve been on. Because of all the rock river crossings I would rate this a moderate hike.

Very nice, moderate difficulty for my beginner level in trail running. No shade at all (no pb at the end of March, but could be later in the season), very open view. Met some horn sheeps.

A great first hike for us in Palm Springs! The waterfall was beautiful!

Nice waterfall!

Lush vegetation in the desert, two water falls and
Well maintained trails as well. Take your time and enjoy the surrounding area.

It's between easy and moderate. Beautiful! Saw 10 peninsular big horn sheep too.

The trail was full of beauty. The falls at the end are fun but the entire trail is a great hike!

You can definitely blaze your own trail. Great rocks and beautiful little oasis at the end.

Great hike! Lots of cool rocks for kids to climb on and under.

This was a great little hike. More toward moderate at there where a lot of stairs but not to bad. The south part of the loop is a bit more strenuous then the north part of the loop. But manageable. The falls were beautiful. We arrived at 9am and there were only a few people. However one the way out, approximately 10am it was heavily trafficked. Definitely get there early.

Beautiful trail! Many steam crossings, may not be best after a rain. Grasses, flowers, amazing rock outcroppings and palms grace the path. Enjoy the trail and don't be fixated on getting to 'the falls', it's nice but the trail is the feature!

*$9.00 per adult for entry* (you can buy a half-year pass ($60) or an annual pass ($90) but you may want to make sure it is worth the cost first).

This is a gorgeous hike! It’s a great combination of desert landscape and groups of palm trees; a little oasis! Bring plenty of water, but know there is also quite a bit of shade. It does involve several water crossings via rocks (10+) and a few ascents/descents that can be tricky for footing if there is dirt on the rocks. Our new favorite hike as it’s the perfect distance (3.9 mi) and so enjoyable!

most popular hike in Palm Springs. slightly touristic. bring money for admission ($12.50). very beautiful. easy. fine valley views. must read canyon history in old newspapers at visitor center.

Started on the trail about 9:30am this morning. Trail is beautiful. Met another local hiker who showed me a couple of waterfalls most people pass up on the trail the last section before you reach Seven Sisters Waterfall is steep. Great hike. When I was leaving Indian Canyons about 11:30am the line at the ticket gate was very long. If you can get there early.

I did this trail with a small group that included 3 kids, aged 6, 7, and 9. They loved it, although I would describe it as "moderate." We were lucky that the stream was low, so crossing it wasn't difficult. You have to navigate around a lot of horse poop in certain parts, so watch your step. I would certainly do this trail again. The stream and views are beautiful.!

Very nice place but I think it is moderate not easy. There are times you have to climb rocks or go under. Crossing the stream requires balancing on rocks. Trekking poles and hiking shoes are definitely helpful. We live the sound of the water. We definitely recommend this place.

Loved it but if you call climbing steps is easy? Then easy it is. Me not so much

One of my favorite local hikes -- in Spring there are wildflowers everywhere.

I love this hike... At the end the waterfall is beautiful... so worth it

A lovely, easy hike with a satisfying (little) waterfall at the end. Overpriced, unfortunately, hence 4 stars instead of 5.

The canyon is a beautiful hike. It's my new favorite in the valley. I would rate it as moderate, not easy in the upper reaches. Trekking poles are helpful there and for balance in crossing the stream numerous times.

We took a group of 12 up to the waterfall on a fairly hot day. There is lots of shade from the canyon walls and Palm trees so it was perfect. Lots of little Creek crossings add to the fun. New fave canyon hike in Palm Springs area.

Buenisimo!!! Gracias. Prime service.
