Calf Creek Falls is one of the most well known and unique features in Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument. The trail follows Calf Creek to the 126' high falls. The hike is 6 miles round trip and takes average hikers 3-4 hours. Elevation change on the trail is minimal, but the trail is sandy and walking can be strenuous, especially in hot weather. In contrast, the falls provide a delightfully cool, shady haven which makes the hike well worth the effort.

Great hike! My >65 parents were able to make it without any problems thanks to the help of a handful of breaks. Take plenty of water and sun protection. The fall is absolutely breath taking!

What a hike! Easy hike (albeit dusty and dry and can get pretty hot). The waterfall at the end is a cool treat and such a sight to behold. It's amazing to see the desert so alive with the life giving water from the falls. A MUST DO HIKE FOR EVERYONE!!!!!

One of the most beautiful hikes I've ever done. Not just the falls, but the hike itself is so pretty.

Great hike for both yourself and dogs! Bring plenty of water because our dogs got plenty thirsty. The waterfall was stunning and well worth the trip!
