Chaol Falls is a 10 mile round trip hike. Located 70 miles northeast of Grand Canyon Arizona. A high clearance vehicle is recommended to access the trailhead. April and October are the best months to enjoy this hike.

Overview: Chaol Falls is on the Navajo Nation and is off-limits to non-Navajos most of the time. If you have a Navajo friend or guide AND have permission of the leaseholder, it is possible to visit the falls. The leaseholder will usually charge a fee of between 20-25 dollars per group. If you cannot contact the leaseholder and do not have a Navajo friend or guide (or are not Navajo yourself), DO NOT DO THIS HIKE.

Check out the Official Route.

    WARNING! Hiking and outdoor related sports can be dangerous. Be responsible and prepare for the trip. Study the area you are entering and plan accordingly. Dress for the current and unexpected weather changes. Take plenty of water. Never go alone. Make an itinerary with your plan(s), route(s), destination(s) and expected return time. Give your itinerary to trusted family and/or friends.
