Must have reservations to park in advance. Open right now four days a week. Road closed from Strawberry only open from Camp Verde. After October 1 no advance permit required. Great river.

Trail is easy and well kept. Hike up the road 1/4 mile to trailhead on left. The road in was graded and well maintained. There were sections that were rough but nothing your vehicle can't handle if you go to trailhead like this often. Get a permit if you're going in the summer.

This place is simply gorgeous! Make sure you take an SUV. The drive to the trail is REAL bumpy. I think the drive was 13 miles. Then the hike is another mile. Depending on the parking lot you are assigned. Bring plenty of water. We were well prepared with cooling towels, bug bracelets, and camelback backpacks! It’s a pretty hike with multiple places to swim on the way to the waterfall. You must get a permit. You can buy them up to a month in advance. This hike was well worth taking.

The water is gorgeous here! It is clear and cold with beautiful views. We went off season so we didn't have much of a crowd. Definitely wanting to go back.

I have driven four different vehicles on the fourteen mile primitive dirt road to Fossil Creek, including my Honda Civic. It can be done in under two hours, one way, going no more than fourteen miles an hour. However, with a car, you won't be able to go any further than the bridge. With that being said, get a high clearance vehicle with excellent tires. Buy your permit to park in the Waterfall Trailhead parking lot, a month in advance for a weekday. I would say the best month to visit would be May because its only about 100°-ish of dry heat. We went in August, monsoon season. Hiking in the sun, with humidity, and a 97° temp sucked. I drank 2.5 liters of water in about three hours. So bring plenty. If you're confused, on where to go, you will see a sign for the Waterfall Trailhead near the bathrooms. Walk down the road to roadblock, go around it and up towards another road block. To the left of that roadblock is the beginning of the trail, about a mile long.
