Everybody knows about Coachella the festival, but what about Coachella’s secret swimming hole? This gorgeous oasis isn’t what you’d expect to find in the middle of the desert. The Seven Sisters Waterfall hike is the ultimate hidden gem!\nThis scenic trail will lead you through a thick grove of shaggy palm trees. You’ll have to walk over stepping stones and cross trickling streams near beautiful little waterfalls.\nEntry to the trail costs $9 per person. Since the falls are seasonal, the best time to go is mid-winter through spring when there's snow runoff from the nearby mountains. Don’t worry - it will still be hot in Palm Springs. Depending on your pace, you can reach the falls in an hour to an hour and a half.\nThis desert oasis is located in the Murray Canyon Trail near Palm Springs. To get there, you'll drive south past downtown Palm Springs on Palm Canyon Drive. Pass Moorten Botanical Garden and keep your eyes open for a toll booth. You'll turn right there.\nThe hike to the falls is 4.2 miles roundtrip. You’ll start out on a flat sand trail that leads you uphill through a shaded grove and lots of rocks. The area is hot and windy, so make sure to bring sunglasses and a light jacket to wear.\nView this post on Instagram So soothing A post shared by Katie O (@kraykray1570) on Jan 2, 2017 at 6:51pm PST\nEven though there's an oasis, this is a desert hike. Make sure to pack plenty of water, snacks, and wear sunscreen. Stay cool out there!\nView this post on Instagram La storia di 5 ragazzi che si avventurano nel deserto con troppa poca acqua e coscienza alla ricerca di un oasi dove tuffarsi per il caldo ve la racconto un’altra volta🤪😂😅🌵🏜 A post shared by Viola Giuliani (@vigiuls) on Jun 13, 2019 at 11:19am PDT\nMake sure to pack your swimsuit and camera too. Chances are, you'll want to take plenty of pictures. Everything is gorgeous here!\nAt the end of the trail, you’ll reach your reward. This swimming hole has a waterfall cascading into it and you’ll be surrounded by lush, tall palm trees.\nIt’s the perfect spot to cool down after your long hike! You don’t have to wait till next summer to enjoy this hidden gem. The Seven Sisters Falls are a must-see for anyone visiting Palm Springs.\nView this post on Instagram I was checking to see if any water snakes were chasing me this time 🌝 turns out you SHOULDN’T climb rocks off the trail to find a nice lil private rest spot or else you’ll get stalked by water snakes and then drop your glasses into the river that’s being guarded by the lil shits 🐍 also don’t take your fucking hiking boots off to go in said river or spiders and fire ants will infest them. #thxforcumingtomytedtalk A post shared by Lexi Erstad (@notlexierstad) on Jun 19, 2019 at 8:24pm PDT\nSeven Sisters Waterfalls: Murray Canyon Trail, Palm Springs\nLocation: Murray Canyon Drive, Palm Springs, CA 92264\nPrice: $9 per adult\nHours: Spring-Summer 8 am to 6 pm, Fall and winter 8 am to 5 pm\nWhy you should go: The Seven Sisters Waterfalls are the perfect desert oasis!
