A easy 45 minutes hike. Before 9am you will walk 100% in the shade. Waterfall is dry, but it stills humide with a lot of trees and amazing stones.
Une promenade facile dans un cadre joli. 45 minutes de marche pour faire la boucle complète. Avant 9h du matin vous serez totalement à l'ombre.

Great area for hiking. Be advised there is a 5.00 fee per adult to hike this trail. You must check in at the visitors center.

Great short hike. It was 108 and the park required a liter of water per person. Beautiful falls and views. Recommended. $5 per person.

It was a nice easy hike! Beware that it's $5 per person! That said we really enjoyed it and we're blessed by a cloud cover the whole time!

Second time to hike this trail complete from W. Mesquite Ave to S. Palm Canyon Dr, Best to hike this trail going the opposite direction instead starting at S. Palm Canyon Dr. to W. Mesquite Ave. The sun light will be behind you. The weather was perfect, didn't even bring a water bottle and this trail is around 5 miles.

Hiked this amazing canyon many times as a kid...it was free back then...too bad people had to abuse and deface it...now you have to pay... but it's still worth it!!! I love this canyon... and thank you to who ever cleaned it up.

We knew before going to this hike that the waterfall might be non existent since we are currently in a drought. However we found the waterfall and pool at the end of the hike to be lovely. A few other nice things: 1) Very friendly Rangers and staff at the gift shop. 2) Summer prices, we were prepared to pay $12.50 a person, but they posted summer prices and we only paid $5 a person. Overall a great morning hike with great views.

This is a pretty short hike with magnificent views along the cove, as you get closer to the end you'll see the famous waterfall, this is the climax and highlight of this trail. The pamphlet you got at admissions ($14 adults) has interesting facts about the history of this place. Believe it or not! There's actually a certain time every so many years when "the witch" shadow figure can be seen at the cove. It’s best to hike this trail between August and March. If you end up visiting in the summer season, just make sure to use sunscreen and/or hat and have at least one 16 oz. water bottle. :)

Very nice short two mile hike climbing rocks, seeing wildlife and listening to the sound of water! Was a nice 80 degrees with the waterfall temp 40 which left the feet pink and numb but worth it!
