  • It's beautiful all year long. Be warned that you need a permit from April 1st to October 1st, just be smart and get it the morning of the first day of the previous month.

  • Hidden gem of Arizona. You have to do a small hike to reach the place Once you reach the end of the hike you'll find the clear waterfall. It is a beautiful place to visit on the weekend. You need to book a spot for the parking lot. The hike is like 2 miles one side to reach the fall. The water is crystal clear and preferably to visit in summer. So, you can enjoy swimming in the water. You can also do a cliff jump there. The height is kind of 25-30 feet. If you are not afraid of heights then I suggest you should try the jump once. There is a small jump as well which is kind of 12 feet half of the main jump height. When visiting the place you must have a parking lot allotted otherwise you have to go back. There is another road for a car from the parking lot which will lead you to a different place where you can find a natural hot water pool. You can take a relaxing bath there. If you don't get the parking lot then I suggest you visit this place. The hike to the hot water pool from the car is like 1 mile one side and it is a pretty easy one as well. This whole area is beautiful and the atmosphere is mesmerizing. If you are living in Arizona then this place should be in your places to go if you are an adventurer or a nature lover. You can visit here with your family like a picnic. You can also hike further if you are not into swimming. The trail is further deep and the scenic beauty is mamma mia. If you are visiting this in monsoon time then please check if there is a flash flood or not. I suggest you don't visit this place in monsoon. There are many places if you like to suggest me I will write down the proper review and what to do and not to do there. Cheers!!
  • It's the best area if you're looking for a relaxing day at the creek. It's stunning and beautiful. The waterfall is amazing and the calm creeks call for adventure. Make sure you reserve a spot for it as it can be quite disappointing to be turned back to the 1 hour bumpy trail ride. 4 stars simply because of the bumpy trail ride.
