Route Description for Cascade Falls Trail
The Cascade Falls Trail is a low-traffic, out-and-back hike that is fun for the whole family. This trail of slickrock and sand is unmaintained, so wear good shoes and be prepared for a little adventure. As you are hiking, keep an eye out for desert wildlife—mule deer are often seen grazing along this trail. If you are lucky enough to see critters, remember not to feed them, and to give them lots of personal space.
From the pullout parking area, head under the road to the north side via the tunnel, and follow the wash north. Pick your way along the rocks and boulders, and take lots of time to explore the trail as it tracks up through the canyon.
After approximately one mile, the canyon will narrow and become impassible. This is a good spot to take a rest before turning back and following the wash back to the car.
Getting to the Cascade Falls Trail Trailhead
To hike the Cascade Falls Trail, park at the pullout on the west side of the small tunnel along route 9.
