Beautiful trail! Make sure you take a lot of water, I mean a lot. My partner and I had about six bottles (Gatorade and water mix) each and we still wish we had taken more. There were no water falls :(, nonetheless, it was beautiful. Parking is closed and we had to park further up the hill. (May 31, 2020).

Beautiful hike! Like others have said, you lose the trail after a couple miles, but it’s easy enough to keep heading uphill until you get to a little brook / tiny waterfall. Other hikers we saw said there were 10ft and 25ft waterfalls higher up, but 3 miles was enough for us! You can sit on a rock and out your feet over the running water. So refreshing! We hung out here a half hour and only saw 2 people right at the end. Got here at 9am. With breaks, 3 hours for 6 miles. Nice easy pace, light climbing when we lost the trail.

Totally loved this trail! Definitely a bit of a scramble at the end but worth it. Nice to dip my toes into the water! Steady incline in the way up, with a quick increase of elevation at the scramble. I’m assuming more water in early months of the season but still able to hear and smell the waterfall. Not much shade until you get to the palm trees, bring plenty of water. Temps hit around 95 for me today so it’s definitely heating up. Please excuse the outrageous return trail on my recording, I go looking for reptiles and found a whole bunch! Lots of cool lizards and tadpoles to be found.

Was actually 6.7 with over 1000 ft elevation. Hard to follow any trail once you hit the scramble but the waterfall was beautiful.

This is a rewarding hiking trail if you can locate the starting trailhead. Directions: Once you get off the entrance at S22, stay left as the road forks. You'll hit a dead-end road loop, as shown in my picture. From there look directly North. Follow that about 30 yards or so and you'll be on the trail heading directly west. You could easily make this an entire day's' hike by following the trail West up the hills and then down, cross the highway at S22, then hike on through the South-Eastern facing rails. Gave it three stars for the annoyance of trailhead being poorly marked (causing us to wander around for an hour before finding the trailhead). The scenery and views are really quite bland compared to the "palm" trails nearby. Still a solid hike with enjoyable for happy hikers. We're walking... Enjoy!

First half no shade. Second half hard to navigate the trail. Went over and under rocks on the trail, lots of bees in the blooming bushes. Quite challenging but worth it to see the Little falls. Overall great hike! Bring water!

Definitely go counter clockwise, as others stated, it would be really hard to find the west butte trail the other way. As others stated, it is washed out as it drops into the wash. It is a bit of a scramble to get down, but not too hard. Views from the top are great and the canyon is super cool. We really enjoyed it.
