Beautiful trail to hike. Kids and dogs loved it. Great views and trails nicely marked. Best of all no mountain bikes.

This hike is a very easy, flat hike compared to other hikes in the area. We decided to take the side trail on the right to go up to the arch. If you’re okay with some climbing, I definitely recommend going up to the arch. The view is beautiful and it’s very peaceful up there because most people choose not to go. Other than the arch, this hike doesn’t have expansive views but is nice and easy.

This is not a review but a question. What is the water level at this time of year? Can you still jump the cliff? or is the water to shallow?

Great trail but please make sure you are ready to jump or have a repelling harness. Turning back is pretty much impossible unless you want to scramble back up against the water stream.

Nothing online mentioned it was blocked, but I drove 45 minutes to find the road closed due to the fires. I was a couple miles from it and had to turn around. I am grateful for the fire fighting and I tried to research what I could get to while avoiding the fire and crew, but nothing was posted. Quite disappointing.

If you’re planning on hiking this in the dead heat of the summer, I would recommend getting an early start, staying overnight, then hiking out the next morning. I tried doing it in one day and didn’t have the best experience. Heading down went pretty well until the trail disappeared right before reaching the creek. I had to bushwhack my way over and around before finding a way down. The trail was hard to follow and I ended up boulder hopping was pretty slow and I ran out of time and turned around before making it to the falls. By the time I was back on the steep trail out, the sun was blazing. It really sapped my energy on the way up and made the climb much harder than it needed to be. Next time I’ll plan on camping at the bottom with plenty of time to explore and recuperate before heading back up.

Started down at sunrise and made my way back up in the middle of the day, not advisable. There is at least one stretch with no shade for a mile and the desert turns into a kiln with no where to hide. If you only have a day and can’t get a permit to camp like myself, it may be a good idea to spend a few hours down by the river until sun starts to hide a little. Probably one of the best hikes in the country.

It is a nice and easy walk however, there is not a waterfall.

Loved this trail! Start early in the morning for the trip down to Phantom Ranch, so you don't get caught in the afternoon sun. No water stops on this trail, so make sure to bring plenty of water and salty snacks to get you down to the bottom where you should be able to replenish your water. Beautiful and diverse views, unlike any other in the world that I know of.

Beautiful. Got there at 715am on a Saturday and snagged the last parking spot, although you can also park on the road. Stay near the creek instead of taking the main trail just as other reviewers said, and it is so much better. We only hiked the 4 miles to the spring and back.

Nice trail. Relatively easy/flat. At the end of the trail, I recommend hiking up the rocks to see an amazing view of Fay Canyon. As far as the optional mid-point hike to the arch, I consider it skipable if you’re pressed for time. It’s neat but not spectacular.

As of July 3, 2020 this trail is currently closed by the Forest Service. There is a US Forest Ranger sitting in the parking lot after people parked along the road and went in giving out tickets.

Unfortunately the Tonto National Forest is closed right now due to high fire danger, so we weren’t able to do this hike and had to turn around. Several people were observed ignoring the closure, but not us. There are lots of homes in the nearby area and I would feel terrible if my actions lead to a forest fire that has such a high potential for home loss.

When you stay to camp on this road your car is safe in the parking lot, I have seen several comments that the road is closed, by chance someone knows if it is already open, I will change stars when I do

Great and fun trail. Mooney Falls is absolutely amazing. Hike early to avoid the crowd. Please be careful descending the ladder, because it’s wet and slippery. Beaver Falls is absolutely spectacular as well. Happy hiking!

Nice little hike! Very easy to do! Follow the directions on the app and you won’t have any problems finding the creek! It’s all downhill, worst part is coming back up and getting slightly winded but if you cooled off in the creek beforehand it’s not too bad. Seriously tho, the directions to find the trail are super easy, when you first take the trail at the second fence there’s another path that diverts to the right and down, don’t take that path, you’ll have to backtrack if you do.
