Like the author below, I hiked shortly after a rainfall (probably the same storm) but I enjoyed the crossings and found the hike to be wonderful. Just no pleasing some people. You won't get a "wow" view at the end; however, hiking amidst the groves of palm trees in the lush canyons will give a great respite from the arid... 更多
We hiked the Murray Canyon trail a few days after a rain in the desert. We had to cross the stream in many places and, by the end of the hike, both of my boots and socks were soaked. The stream is not easy to cross when there is even a small amount of water, but the hike is gorgeous... 更多
This was a gorgeous hike along a river that at the turnaround point had a view of some very interesting but private, old stone homes that I assumed are Indian owned. Great spot, maybe an hour to complete and then good picnicing.

We take all our first time desert guests to Murray Canyon so that they can see that the valley is much more than just endless alternating golf courses, condo developments and sage brush filled empty lots.

Did this as one of the Trails when we visited Indian Canyons. Nice 3 mile trail, but you need the right footwear! Also, take plenty of water.
One of the many great hiking canyons in Palm Springs. Great place to get out in nature for hiking. Go early if you can before it gets too hot, bring plenty of water.
We didn't do the entire trail because we didn't want to get wet feet and didn't allow enough time. I would like to go back and do it again. Nice walk but no trees on the first half of the trail, at least. It's not a difficult walk from an elevation-gain perspective, but I imagine it gets very hot- we... 更多
