Perhaps the best known of the trails in the White Tanks, Waterfall Trail is a well maintained barrier free trail which terminates at a Waterfall. Many petroglyphs are highlighted along trail. Be aware that there is a $6 entrance fee to the park. The waterfall only flows after a recent rain.
Great for what it is. A short easy hike with points of interest. Kids should like the petroglyphs, but may be disappointed at the lack of an actual waterfall.
Great for taking visitors to AZ to give them a taste of hiking here without being too difficult.
Nice, easy and short.
It was well worth getting our feet a little wet to see the water coming down the waterfall!!
This was a nice family stroll with grandma and grandpa, and the first time we've seen ancient
Awesome hike to do with the family.
Nice trail. Hiked with family and 2 dogs. Slight elevation.
This is a nice, low key trail. It is mostly flat but, towards the final stretch, you have a small incline and some stone stairs. I took my Pomeranian and he did really well. We met a few other dogs along the way. I enjoyed this hike and highly recommend it!
The waterfall trail is great to share with out-of-town friends and family!!
Nice family hike!
This is a relatively easy hike with a nice view. I have hiked the trail at least 20 times and I have never seen a waterfall, so don't expect to see one. This is a very popular Trail so don't expect to be alone either. But it is a very quick easy and fun one.
8/2/2016- visited this location right when the gates opened after a short rainfall . We were hoping to catch a glimpse of the falls while active, but no luck. But, we did get to watch a lovely sunrise . The trail really was more of a super-easy (and landscaped) walk as others indicated below. Petroglyphs were interesting .
