Description

Added by Sal Cavazos

Murray Canyon is an easy to moderate hike south of Andreas Canyon. Foot and equestrian trails lead to beautiful recreational areas among the many palm trees. 

A very scenic 3-mile round trip with rewarding water fall after 1.5 mile hike/stroll in. Lucky visitors may catch a glimpse of the Peninsula Big Horn Sheep (an endangered species), mule deer or other wild animals still roaming the high ground above the canyon. Less visited, Murray Canyon has its own secluded beauty. The endangered Least Bells Vireo bird is known to nest here. Watch out for snakes in the summer time.
