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.
