The drive isn't bad, might need a 4x4 when it's in the rainy seasons or after the snow melts. When you arrive, you are on Navajo Nation, the tribe has built up the overlook of the falls with a gazebo, restrooms, parking area and there...More

We made it kinda last in the season, wasn't flowing significantly, but still beautiful. The hike was super easy and worth it. Because it wasn't flowing as much as it usually was, we were able to go up onto the first level of the falls....More

I'm sure if you go when snowing it's not a bad deal but the road is very rough going there when it's not snowing so I cannot imagine what it would be when it is snowing.way worth the drive.
