The trail was really beautiful, but not clearly marked the farther you get down. Still fun and totally worth it! We went at the beginning of May and there were a few people on the trail too.

Use these directions to the falls and save yourself confusion. Driving down E. Wolf Creek Rd, (eventually gravel) watch for trail mrkr384- marked on both sides of the road. The trail to the falls begins at a single swing gate on your left. Follow it downhill. When the trail opens up, do not continue to follow 384 signs. The falls are to your right when you hit this opening- you’ll see the top of the rocks and eventually be at the top of the falls if you continue right. We went mid-April and it was just a small drizzle of water over the rocks but still fairly scenic.

The entrance to the trail was clearly marked 384. But where we came out of the trail was not where we entered. We found the waterfall, unfortunately it was dry. I would rate this trail as easy, good day to spend out in nature

I went in spring and even a local who'd been on the trail before couldn't find the falls. Finally after much scrambling and following noses, found it. whew!

My husband and I visited Wolf Creek Falls this past weekend with a couple of friends. The hike in was so much fun. We were the only people there and it was fantastic! A little chilly in the waterfall water, but, hey, when in Rome...We will definitely be back in early spring for some higher water levels, or maybe after monsoon waters hit. This was one of my favorite adventures thus far!

awesome hike. getting down to the base of the lower falls takes some maneuvering, but it's totally worth it. all-in-all gorgeous. getting back to the trailhead has a lot of incline.

The trail headed to the waterfall is okay, but to get the the base of the falls has some perilous rock climbs with loose soul, slippery rocks and no unified path. Walking sticks and youthful legs are key to a great experience.

Beautiful hike. The trail gets a little hard to follow above the waterfall.
