Tips:

Found the trail head without a problem. The thing I found which was not mentioned prior to my visit was that when you come to the fence with the yellow National Forest sign on it, you go through the fence. There are signs for trails to the left and right of the fence which I don't believe lead to the cave.We followed a small post that said "trail" with an American flag on it and ended up going out of the way. The fence is wide enough to walk through single file and is painted orange at the entry/exit.
Once you get through here it is pretty easy to follow the trail from there.

Be sure to note where the trail is when you pass through the wash of the canyon so when you come back on the way down, you don't end up going down the wash versus the actual trail.

Overall, it is a beautiful hike with amazing views. We hiked at about 9a on a week day and we were the second car in the dirt lot. The lot was almost full when we got back to the car.

Chose this trail for my son's first hiking trip and it was great! He loved the rock castle at the end and pointed out so many great views. Easy but just challenging enough for him to get a good hiking feel.

Great for taking visitors to AZ to give them a taste of hiking here without being too difficult.

I absolutely loved this trail! Take $10 cash for the parking fee and shoes that you don't mind getting wet!

It was nice on a cooler day, more people the later in the day you go

One of the most beautiful place on Earth! I went in late November. It is a bit chilly to jump in the water but it well worth it to have a waterfall this beautiful all to yourself. There were hardly any hikers or campers and I was able to take so many photos sans crowds. I was able to call and get a live person and a reservation right away. The trail is not clearly marked so we second guessed ourselves a couple times since there was no one else on the trail to ask for directions. Whatever you do, go down the canyon and keep going right. There are several trails to get to the bottom of the canyon. The hike down is not too bad, I had a healing broken metatarsal and I did just fine with a good pair of ankle top hiking boots. It is flat for miles. Make time to see all the falls, I went there late and only got as far Mooney Falls. It is an awesome descent into a short tunnel and down a makeshift ladder, chain, metal peg climb down to the falls. There are dogs and wild horses everywhere. Some dogs will follow you for food. The village experience is interesting in itself since horse is the means for commuting. I would recommend going during the off season to get the full experience. This is def the trip of a lifetime!

Easy hike. Enjoyed the scenery.
