    The Griffith Spring Trail is a quick, simple route north of Kachina Village. This is a hike that can be done in less than half an hour by most, but the scenery is nice enough to make it feel like a satisfying adventure. This route is family and dog-friendly, and it can be enjoyed all year )although spring through fall provides the best weather). Expect moderate traffic on this hike.

    Route Description for Griffith Spring Trail

    Griffith Spring Trail is a lovely short hike north of Kachina Village that provides pretty creekside views and a relaxed, calm atmosphere. This hike is quick enough to do as a warm-up or cooldown, or you can just enjoy it as a fast moment in nature. It’s a good beginner hike, or a nice pick for families with small children.

    From the trailhead, take Griffith Spring Trail to where the trail splits. Our route goes counterclockwise, so you’ll keep right, hike to the creek bed, and then follow the creek bed north. Pass the Griffiths Tank and then follow the trail as it completes its northbound loop and turns south, leading you back to the trailhead.

    Should you want a bit of extra distance on your adventure, you can cross the creek near the tank and hike south along the creek bed and back on a nice stretch of trail.
