Perhaps the best known of the trails in the White Tanks, Waterfall Trail is a well-maintained, barrier-free trail that terminates at a Waterfall. Many petroglyphs are highlighted along the trail. The waterfall only flows after a recent rain. Park entrance fee is $7. The fee is $2 if you walk, bike, or ride via horseback into the park. Accessibility: The trail surface is partially-paved and partially-dirt. The first half of the trail is paved, typically at least four feet wide, and mostly flat with an estimated grade less than 5% but then the grade begins to get steep as the trail becomes dirt and more narrow. There are stairs cut into the rock at the end of the trail to get to the plunge pool viewpoint.Show more

This is a tough hike! If temperatures are above 90 degrees, you will need more than 3L of water (assuming you hike it in a loop with Willow and Mesquite Canyon trails). This trail is the most interesting in the White Tanks because of its seclusion and varying scenery. You will hike through a sandy wash bottom, climb boulders, and see an old earthen dam.Show more

For the first mile and a quarter one experiences a gradual incline , walking on soft white sand for about one half mile, then the trail becomes rocky and towards the end more and larger rocks with steeper climbs. Up to the three mile marker, the trail narrows with very steep inclines and you need to know how to place your feet and to avoid falls. One rates this as the toughest part. Then up to three and a third miles one experiences the rocky climbs a little easier. One, therefore, can rate this hike as challenging.Show more

South Trail is a one mile out-and-back which can be completed as a loop by returning on Goat Camp Trail and Black Canyon Drive. It's mostly flat with few rocks slight uphill. It's a nice warm-up biking trail.Show more
