First and foremost, Sitting Bull Falls is beautiful, and you get to see it right away. Second, the trails seem super well marked initially, but after you get a mile in, they are super confusing and we only made it around because of All Trails. I think the actual trail should be T68 but we followed that and it was way off of AllTrails. So we backtracked and went to the outlook. It wasn’t a super hard trail but it was a little difficult going out. It’s really pretty out there and you should definitely go. But just watch where you’re going.

The drive there was beautiful and worth the drive. We didn't hike the entire trail but what we did hike was beautiful. It was a little too warm to hike much further since the trail seemed to be all sun. The terrain was very rocky so the hiking shoes came in handy.

Very pretty trail. Starts out a little steep and rocky but worth the effort. You get to see a pond at the top and then follow creek at the top of the Falls.

Not a heavily used trail but well worth the effort

We did this hike the day after we did Guadalupe Peak. Lots of great scenery along the trail. One of the neatest things we did was have lunch in the grotto which is about 30 minutes away from the falls.
