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.

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.

Just ok. This is great for young kids and older folks other than that I wouldn't waste your time.

This trail is easy, yet fun. Great trail for kids and light hikers. The amount of water is usually pretty low, but can get to be a fair amount during rainy seasons. over all nice, relaxing family hike.

This was such a nice little hike. Tons of Wildflower's and it was beautiful. There is only a waterfall if there was recent rain. Took a million beautiful pics
