We will be visiting Palm Springs the last week of September 2016 from Sunday to Thursday. Is Murray Canyon Trail open during that week? Is there any charge to hike the trail?

As already answered. Its only a few dollars to enter the park. Once in, any of the trails are free to walk. I highly recommend the 7 sisters waterfall trail as well!!
