Have visited this beautiful canyon location several times. There is an admission fee but it’s reasonable and well worth the price. We’re a retired couple but still active and love to walk. There are a number of trails throughout the canyon that offer a number of choices for every level (easy, moderate or challenging). We’ve hiked the easy trails in both Murray Canyon and The Trading Post. Both areas have ample parking and offer trails with beautiful desert and canyon vistas. We especially liked Victor trail at Trading Post. It takes you along the upper lip of Palm Canyon providing some of the best views and photographs. Lots of choices for short (2 mile) hikes or longer.
Some of the most beautiful scenery, but the temperature of the desert trail reaches 114 degrees, and the rangers are not kidding when they say you need to hoard water. If you don't do this, it can be very dangerous. In other words, this is crazy beauty and must be done! Praise the ranger Ralph loudly, he helped me with a series of difficulties, in our one-on-one communication!
