Overview
Wolf Creek Falls is a 1.2 mile round trip hike with 300 feet accumulated elevation gain. Located 9 miles south of Prescott Arizona. Trailhead access is via a dirt road which is typically car accessible when dry. October and April are the best months to enjoy this hike.


Short hike to a transient (Spring) 60 ft falls connecting Wolf Creek to the Hassayampa. The hike involves some scrambling down a steep sandy trail to the bottom of the falls. It is about a mile round trip. The creek and falls are typically dry.


A nice option is to continue down to a nice scenic area on the Hassayampa River. This river is typically dry too.
