Hiked in to upper falls this past week. Beautiful weather--water was warm enough to play in. Not many people so it was peaceful. A few naked hikers but no one seemed to mind-- so we joined in!!

If your idea of a hike is a walk on a well defined path, you should probably look elsewhere. If you like scrambling through, over and around boulders and running water… you'll probably like this a lot. Fantastic hike where the trailhead is the only...More

We hiked down to the base of the canyon and there was enough water in the pools to cool our feet. We then scrambled to the lower falls and watched a dog dive for stones. It was a pleasant afternoon.

For the normal hiker BEWARE. The allure of water in the desert is enticing but extremely dangerous to get to. Take the lower trail. It is safer, but unless you have plenty of water and a couple of hours to spare, in good shape, have...More

I hiked this in march. The weather was perfect and the water was flowing hard. There was so much water that we were able to cliff jump (not from the top) after swimming across the little lake where the waterfall is at. The amount of...More

I found out about these falls after some hikers were rescued during a flash flood in July. It's east of Tucson about 30-45 min (more or less depending on where you stay). After a few days break of monsoon rains, we decided to take the...More

Hiked in April 2017 and the basin was dry as a bone--no waterfalls. Regardless, this is an *excellent* hike among the saguaros and multiple other varieties of cacti, with beautiful desert vistas, clear blue skies, and just enough friendly fellow hikers on a Saturday afternoon...More

Yes nakedness is common from just below the upper falls on up. Those who wear clothes are welcome as well and and seem to accept nudity up there.
