The lower falls are accessible with a short hike through Darwin Canyon that become moderately difficult towards the end. While this access point is usually accessible with a 2WD vehicle, there is an option to drive further with a 4WD vehicle to a spot further along the path around the canyon. The upper falls are viewable with moderate climbing.

  • Nice easy hike. Hard to believe a place like this exists in the desert.

  • The trailhead is about a 2.5 mile drive from Highway 190. The first fall is about a mile walk in. This is a great riparian area in the desert. A really nice place to visit.

  • RAD hike! I loved having to walk over rolling, teeter tottering logs to get across little streams. Some nice older gentleman on the way down gave us his walking stick and said, "You're gonna need this!" I kinda did actually. The bottom of my boots got a bit slick and I slipped into the water once...laughing all the way!

    So gorgeous. You can't miss this if you're in DV.
