Perhaps the best known of the trails in the White Tanks, Waterfall Trail is a well maintained barrier free trail which terminates at a Waterfall. Many petroglyphs are highlighted along trail. Be aware that there is a $6 entrance fee to the park. The waterfall only flows after a recent rain.

Easy but beautiful trail. Lots of petroglyphs on your way. The waterfall is dry currently but when you reach that site, it’s just surreal.

Make sure to stop at the Nature Center. I have not seen a library in a location like this. If you get tired reading a book, just look outside and the surrounding will take your breath away.

A nice easy hike or moderate trail run. Beautiful scenery, cool rocks, cliffs, and views. No active water fall, though no surprise. Be advised the bees also like the standing water that is there.

It's usually a trickle not really a waterfall at
All. Easy short hike can bring weak people , old people, children, and old decrepit animals (my 14 yr old dog liked it)

Five stars, because it offers beautiful views, petroglyphs and is handicap accessible.
Easy peasy lemon squeezie, so jog it!

There really isn't a trial. It's more of a follow the creek upstream for as long as you feel like hike. You have to cross the creek several times, you could bring water shoes but we managed not to get wet. 90% of the hike is boulder/rock hiking. Great for dogs, okay for kids but expect to be helping them out a lot. Id say save this one for 8+ yr olds.
