Waterfall Trail

Waterfall Trail

 

Waterfall Trail is a 2 mile out and back trail located near Waddell, Arizona that features a waterfall and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking, trail running & walking and is accessible from November until April.

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.

A 75-foot-high waterfall at the end of the Waterfall Canyon Trail looks out of place in the normally dry-as-a-bone Sonoran Desert.

That’s why it’s by far the most popular hike in the preserve, with a trickle of water in the deep shaded canyon even during the hottest summer months.

The waterfall’s source, according to park rangers, is strictly rainwater, so the only time to catch this rare site is a day after a heavy rain. There are some natural springs in the White Tanks, but none feeds the waterfall.

Waterfall Canyon Trail is one of nine hiking, biking and equestrian trails in the White Tank Mountain Preserve.

This trail is located near Camp Verde, for any questions call Red Rock Ranger District at 928-203-2900.
