35 yr old Recommendation: This is a nice short canyon and an easy walk. If we had more time, I would have liked to explore further.

Permits

Be Aware of
Boulder hopping

Hike and scramble up Tuckup canyon in Grand Canyon national park, Arizona.

After parking at the camp, simply boulder hop up canyon. The canyon narrows up pretty quickly and soon dead ends at a nice waterfall after about 0.3 miles of hiking. There is a way to continue up canyon if you have a rope and rock climbing skills. If you stop about 100 yards short of the fall and look to your left (looking up canyon) you can see a route that will take you around the fall. We didn't have the time to explore this so we turned around at the fall.
