Waterfall Trail--Accessible from Strawberry?

Postby ddgrunning » Jul 03 2017 1:47 pm

The hike description suggests yes, but from all I can tell, the road in from Strawberry is closed off near the TH to the Fossil Springs Trail #18(?) Seems like the only access is from the Camp Verde side (and a looong, somewhat rough, dirt road).

I would rather come in from the Strawberry side, if possible, but definitely don't want to risk hitting a closed road ....

I should clarify: Is the parking area accessible by car from Strawberry?

you can park at the top of fossil springs trail #18, accessible from strawberry
it's a four mile hike down to the creek
you're not near the waterfall trail, either, but near the decommissioned dam area [ photo ]
you cannot drive to the waterfall parking area from the strawberry side
here's some forest service information: fs.usda.gov/recarea ... d=50

And need a parking permit ahead of time to access any of the parking areas in the Fossil Creek/springs area during the month April-Oct..
