We (the family) decided to check this place out after one of her friends told her how nice it is. We headed in from the Camp Verde side due to the Strawberry rd being closed. The dirt rd was fine. Took the mustang on it and we did not bottom out any time.

The family picked the waterfall trail, we heard that there are a few swimming holes on the way. I put my day pack on and we headed out. The parking lot had about 9 cars in it besides mine own. The trail was nice and easy and right off the bat you could see the greenery, trees, fern, etc. The creek was flowing nicely and you could hear it for most of the trail.

About .5 miles in we found a nice teal colored swimming hold. We all stopped and hopped in the pool for a nice swim our son was having fun sliding down the rocks. After our nice dip in the creek we headed to see the waterfall at the end of the trail. We saw birds, lizards and a nice cactus blossom.

The waterfall was awesome there was some people jumping off the top of it and a few drinking in the cave by the fall. They all had left by the time we packed up and left, but the good thing was that they took all their trash with them.

Overall nice easy trail, but be aware that there is a lot of people heading here like the kids who are off from school.
