Has small trails throw out Fossil Creek. Great views of waterfalls and small creeks! Great for swimming, hiking, dog friendly, family fun! Also has tree swing and great spots for cliff jumping!
Very nice trail! Do not follow this GPS route as a portion of Fossil Creek road is closed which blocks access to this trailhead. Turn at Camp Verde on Fossil Creek road. Connect to Fossil Springs and Fossil Creek trailheads.
I took this trail from the trail head to the dam/water fall. It is not actually two miles but 5 one way. it climbs quite steadily from the trail head for the first mile and a half but flattens out after that for the most part. It follows the side of the mountain well away from the water until the last two miles which follow the creek so bring lots of water. Once you're by the water it cools down immensely and makes the hot hike in well worth it. I did the hike as part of a backpacking trip, camping about a half mile past the dam taking one day to just spend it swimming in the crystal clear water. While the hike is hard it is definitely worth it!
