Fantastic scenery - palms, creeks and canyons. I can recommend the hike to Seven Sisters falls, easy with great views, you'll have to cross the creek several times over logs/rocks. The Palm Canyon at the end is also quite picturesque and very easy, don't necessarily follow up into the desert at the end of the canyon as there is little more there. Be aware that they close the place at 5pm so plan accordingly as you will have to be out by then if you don't want you car towed away.
Great family hike with 9 and 12 year old. We went an hour in to the sisters falls and an hour back. Easy hike and lots of fun crossing the creek many times. You gotta pay to get into the park, but great exercise.
