After paying the entrance fee either at the Visitor's Center or at the drop box, you will park at the La Cueva Picnic Area. The trailhead is marked well with a map posted. At about .15 miles you reach a fork in the trail. Take the left fork. At about .75 miles you will meet the junction of the Fillmore Canyon Trail and will go through a walk through gate to the left. There is an informational sign at the gate that shows a picture of a mine and buildings that were there in 1920. Follow this to the waterfall at about 1.1 miles! You will return the same direction unless you want to take the Crawfor trail from the last juntion and head over to the visitor's center for a longer hike!
The trail is family friendly but not to the extent of strollers! No pets are allowed!
There are restrooms at the trailhead but no running water! The visitor's center does have restrooms with running water. There are picnic ramadas also.
Check out the Triplogs.
Gate Policy: If a gate is closed upon arrival, leave it closed after you go through. If it is open, leave it open. Leaving a closed gate open may put cattle in danger. Closing an open gate may cut them off from water. Please be respectful, leave gates as found.
