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.

Great short trail. I hiked it with my nephew the day after Thanksgiving. We saw many petroglyphs. The Water Fall hike was a good introduction to White Tank Regional Park, since it was our first time hiking in the area. Will definitely hike again.

Pretty trail, very easy and family friendly, paved about 1/2 of the way. Go after a monsoon to see the water actually flowing. Take your grandparents & your strollers till the bench on the left hand side, then it'll be a little less smooth till you reach the waterfall. Doable in an hourish.

The first little bit is paved but then turns into natural terrain. Lots of families with small children and older folks. We enjoyed looking for petroglyphs along the route. There is a small day pass fee to enter the park but a very nice walk with a mild incline.

This trail has been recently paved half way. Now this part is handicap accessible to people using a walker or wheelchair. Great job!!!!!

This is a wonderful trail I hiked it on Sunday with my adventurous 11 yr. old. There is a riverbed that runs along the trail which I assume is where the water flows during periods of heavy rain. We hiked the river bed and it is a must for people who enjoy climbing and large boulders and general off-trail hiking. Short hike but if done right works all the muscles. Absolute must!

This trail is super for beginners. It has a wide concrete path for the first .5 miles. Then it is a groomed dirt trail from there. Dog friendly. Ends at the waterfall which only has water when it rains but looking at the rocks the water has eroded is nice. A picturesque walk
