Desert Triple Waterfall Adventure


 

View Online Brochure

Every year since we started offering this hike in 2002, going out to see what magic the summer rains have wrought in this desert canyon remains one of our favorite parts of opening for a new season. Because when the rains have done their job, this lovely canyon is transformed into three desert waterfalls that feature the remarkable sight of the desert sands completely swallowing all the water once it has run its course over the rocks.

The water brings forth a great array of plant and animal life - including lots of butterflies in some months - and your guide discusses their strategies for living and thriving in the Baja desert. This walk includes a ladder climb and some rock scrambling up and down the falls. Aside from going up and down the falls, the walk is flat and easy.

When there is no water in the falls, this becomes a beautiful desert canyon walk.

Includes transportation, bilingual naturalist guide who is a certified Wilderness First Responder, and picnic lunch.
