From the Phoenix area, take HWY 60 East towards G;lobe, AZ. Continue on HWY 60 about 40 miles to the salt river canyon. Turn downstream at the river and go another 7 miles to Cibecue creek.
Hike up Cibecue Creek in Arizona.
To go any further than the first water fall on this hike (and believe me, you will want to), you will need a licensed Apache Tribe guide. Call (928) 338-4385 for reservations and information.
This is a great hike to escape the Phoenix heat in the summer. From the creek, you walk about one mile to the first water fall, which drops a good 60 feet into the creek. This creates a great swimming hole and would be a good destination if not for the even more fun beyond. With the guide's help, you will rock climb on the right side wall here and continue up the creek. Lots of swimming and scrambling leads you further up this creek with crystal clear pools. Eventually, you end up at a multi-tiered waterfall that drops 50 feet into the narrows you just emerged from.
On the way back, you repel into the canyon near the first waterfall. This place is a blast!
