Ellison Creek Trail is a 1 mile lightly trafficked out and back trail located near Payson, Arizona that features a waterfall and is good for all skill levels. The trail offers a number of activity options and is best used from April until September. Dogs are also able to use this trail.
There is a lot just down the road from the entrance to the old dirt road where you can park, eat, and enjoy the creek view! (with bathrooms as well) We hiked and then when we got back to our car, drove to the parking lot to have lunch at the picnic table!
