Pretty easy hike! The end is pretty neat to see with the hieroglyphics and the water (when there is water). We've done this hike twice and once there was a lot of water in the water fall. Very beautiful! Kid friendly and dog friendly!

Great hike! Amazing views!

Great hike with a very rewarding view at the top. As many have stated, make sure you walk through the fence when you get to the fork in the trail. (Rather than going left or right) Also, keep in mind it’s a dirt road to get to the trailhead. It takes about 15 mins to the trailhead from the main road and it’s helpful if you have a vehicle with some clearance.

Great trail, but definitely tricky to find the right way to go after the flat stretch at the beginning. At the point where the the trail splits and there are trail signs on the left and right, don’t follow either one. Go straight through the zigzag in the barbed wire fence. It’s hard to see, but there’s an opening and this is the trail to the wave cave and it’s pretty much straight up to it from there.

The last stretch to the cave is fairly steep and is challenging on the way up and down. Was surprised the trail was rated moderate for that reason. Not a lot of shade cover. Beautiful views from the cave—worth the effort. Watch out for bees. If you need a bathroom afterwards, you can head up the road, past the parking lot, past the Lost Goldmine Trail, and into the Tonto National Forest parking lot. Was really glad that was there. :)

Nice, easy trail. No water at the falls right now, but still worth the short hike!
