Nice hike, but hot. For those that haven't been, I'll include some directions and observations. 1st, the turn off for this hike is very easy to find - almost exactly 3.5 miles from the trailhead, you'll see a cairn and a trail that appears to go straight up hill. That's the trail you are looking for. After summiting, the trail heads down hill for ~3.5 miles and ~1500 feet. At the bottom, you come out of the brush into a jumbled creek bed. Take a minute at this point and become very, very familiar with this point. YMMV, but, I had a hard time finding the trail back up the hill on my way back from the falls. Head up stream from that point (right) and make your way over the jumble of car sized rocks to the falls. The falls are about .65 miles up stream. After enjoying the falls, I headed back down stream toward the trail back up. Along the way, I saw a number of small campsites that I had missed on the way upstream. I didn't see any spots big enough for a large group, but several 1 tent sites that looked like they had been used recently. The hike back up is tough, but manageable.
The weather was darn hot: mid-90's in Phoenix. I only saw 2 people heading out to Reavis Ranch and a group of 8 heading down to the Falls as I was coming out. Great day.
