Description

The trail starts on the left just before the road dips down to ford Calf Creek. You follow the canyon upstream over rocky slopes and sandy surfaces with impressive canyon walls on either side. A brochure that can be picked up at the trailhead provides more information on history, geology, and vegetation at over a dozen key points throughout the trail. Pictographs can been seen about halfway to the falls on the far right side of the canyon wall. They are approximately 30 feet tall.

Most of the time, the trail loosely follows Calf Creek and ends at the 126-foot waterfall that plunges into a green deep pool. The surrounding amphitheater is a great place to relax and enjoy, particularly the colorful canyon walls.

Families frequent this trail because of the easy path and refreshing waterfall and pond at the end. Be ready for some crowds.
