Trails with water Map

I am trying to get a permit for 2 of us and I can’t get thru the phone lines. I have called continuously but no answer. Any suggestions on how else I can purchase a couple nights stay for 2 possibly 3 of us? Would they help me if I drive all the way there? Please email me if you have suggestions : chapis503@outlook.com

I had a blast driving along the dirt road to this small, quaint spot. I climbed up to the small cavern and then down into the trench below the bridge. The only problem is... the trail is flooded out (at least what they App showed me was the trail). Because there was no trail I just climbed around and snapped some pictures. It’s amazing how small you can feel staring up towards the sky at the mountain tops. I wouldn’t recommend this for an actual hike but maybe a spot to check out and have lunch.

AMAZING. Honestly no words.

on West Fork Trail

One of my absolute favorite hikes in Arizona. This hike is a go to year round and especially nice in the warm weather when you’re able to enjoy the water.

Definitely one of the best trails I have ever done. Unfortunately we had gone on a day that was forecast to rain throughout the day and it was a bad decision since we didn’t have much rain-proof gear, so it was cold and wet. Nevertheless, the views were 10/10 and would definitely go back again on a sunny day. There’s not much incline but it is a decent distance to the end of the trail and the stream crossings definitely slow you down but makes for an interesting hike.

Such a beautiful place to go and see nature. The hike in was roughly 12 miles in (not the 10 everyone says). We checked in at the village and were on our way. There isn’t any signs along the way to let us know we were heading in the right direction so we used other hikers as our “guides” to know we were heading in the right direction. When we reached the first “fall” it was a disappointment (only because I thought that was where we were suppose to be and that was it). Keep going, pass the signs that say “Dangerous Unstable Ground” and pass the grave yard. When you are getting nervous you will never make it, just go a little further and you are there. This place is totally worth the sore muscles and exhaustion. We did put up our tent in close to the Natural Spring water (really made life easier to be so close to the fresh water). The hike out is daunting, tiring and makes you question every poor life choice but when you reach the top and are back in the comfort of your own vehicle, it makes you feel accomplished. Wear good supportive shoes, take ONLY what you need and hand sanitizer NEEDS to make it in your pack. Females, be prepared to “hover” in the bathrooms. Most importantly....enjoy the place....it’s absolutely beautiful and magical.

A great day hike, 4-5 hours. We spent 4 hrs round trip including a half hour at the beautiful pool. Fairly strenous in places but views all along the way.

Absolutely gorgeous hike. Creek was a little difficult to navigate as the water was high after a rain but we did it! (We’re new to hiking, age 62). We thoroughly enjoyed this.

It was an amazing experience!

Amazing place and a pretty good hike.

Overall, good trail but somewhat boring at first. It gets better once you get into the actual canyon. The area of the pools is nice and with a bit more water would present some nice swimming holes. While I only went to the pools, I could tell that beyond the pools would become more picturesque. It looks like an adventure further up into the Catalinas.

Absolutely amazing!

Really fun trail! We made it almost too the end but we’re getting cold and tired and decided to take a break for lunch and then head back to warm up. Beautiful views! Totally recommend!

Love this trail. The temperature was perfect in this first weekend of March. There was a lot of snow on the ground which was a really cool contrast with the creeks and the rocks and the trees.

AMAZING views! Awesome waterfalls! Must do again!

Best ever!!!❤️

Great as always!

Love this place. Hike it every spring when I visit Tucson. Hiking over a lot of rock and rough, uneven terrain, so plenty of places to twist an ankle. So while you're admiring the beautiful scenery keep an eye on where you step. Trekking poles are useful. This trail is a knee buster, and plenty of spots where snakes could be lurking along the way. Start early, beat the crowds and afternoon heat, and don't underestimate the amount of water you need. once you get to the pools, you feel like you've ascended into heaven.

I think February is the Best time for this trail. Not too crowded mix of snow and sun. Amazing views, amazing hike!

Great fun hike. Made better by the 55° sunny weather (Feb 24). Few notes

• Not to soft or rocky of a trail
• Balanced with a good amount of flat and straight sections mixed with inclined switchbacks
• Very much scenic with loads of desert vegetation
• Good amount of traffic and not too crowded
• Lots of visible signage... No dogs
• Don't stop at the first set of pools you see. There are way more with a mini "waterfall" (@ 5 feet) at the end.

lucky enough to snag one of the coveted permits this year. unbelievable experience the entire way

Great hike. Clear, cool pools.

Absolutely beautiful hike! the first 8 miles is within the canyon and it was the most beautiful scenery! the campgrounds were awesome! almost every spot is near the water and you're an easy walk to Mooney and havasu! if you have the ability and the time to go to beaver falls DO IT! the hike was SO much different from the rest of the hike and you do a lot of water crossing and the scenery is way different! It was so much fun actually. glad I made the trek down Mooney Falls. disclaimer: the trek down Mooney Falls is not for the feint of heart! But it is absolutely possible to do so don't let it freak you out at first glance! I'm glad I did this in February but if you do this in summer months you will need a lot.of water for the first part of the hike! also bring wet shoes if you do the water crossing!

Went in the last part of January in the late afternoon and we had the place to ourselves. Absolutely beautiful river and waterfalls. We went swimming. The road in is rough, but certainly doable in a 2 wheel drive truck or SUV.

One of the world’s most beautiful places. So lucky to have gotten a permit. Went in mid February and it was absolutely beautiful. The hike is relatively easy except for making it the last mile up on your way back.

Pack a lot of water and high energy foods (protein bars, etc.) as you’ll need it on the way out!
