Explore Coconino County: Grand Falls and Canyon Diablo   NEW!

Download full itinerary.

Tuesday,
March 24, 2020

Please reserve by
Mar. 2.


Northeast of Flagstaff, on the Little Colorado River, is a dramatic seasonal waterfall, Grand Falls (sometimes referred to as Chocolate Falls). This is a place where the river was diverted: from its canyon by a lava flow, and cascades back into the canyon in a dramatic waterfall, higher than Niagara. The falls are most dramatic in the spring, when snow is melting in the White Mountains. We'll have lunch at the falls, with an optional scramble-hike to the bottom. During the afternoon we will visit the old railroad construction camp at Canyon Diablo, once considered the most violent town in Arizona, the nearby ruins of a Babbitt Brothers trading post warehouse, and the old Route 66 attraction of Two Guns. The day will include about a mile of fairly, easy walking, plus the optional trip to the bottom of the falls. Activity Rating: 2.
