Be Aware of
Boulder hopping, scrambling, bush whacking

If a challenging scramble to a box canyon dead end appeals to you, Fall canyon is your hike.


If you find yourself camped at Fall Canyon and looking for a way to get some exercise, you may enjoy hiking and scrambling to the dead end of this canyon. There is a great deal of boulder hopping here with a little bush whacking, so be prepared. You can get around the first limestone fall by bush whacking on creek left and going around. From this fall, it is not too much farther to the end of the hike. The turn around point is a dead end in the canyon marked by a 200 ft red wall fall. This is a nice place to relax and restore your energy before heading back to the beach.
