Wonderful walk with a chance to stand under a waterfall at the furthest point! Did at 8am with Ranger, as already 95deg F ... and it just got hotter...!

Great rock formations and a cooling off spot before or after more strenuous hikes in the other canyon areas!

This is such a pretty hike, but pretty short. We started as soon as it opened; 7:30am. Since its summer, the entrance fee is only $5 per adult. It's very easy but has some steps, which could become strenuous for anyone that isn't able to climb many stairs. The waterfall is absolutely beautiful and it's pretty chilly, but you get used to it after a minutes or so.

Perfect for someone in the Palm Springs area who wants to see a decent waterfall but doesn't want to (or can't ) put in a lot of effort. Perfect for young children..

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.
