Hike to Phoenix Park Waterfall

Although the Phoenix Park Waterfall is beautiful, it is not viewed often because it is so remote.  You either have to hike or use an ATV, and even an ATV can’t make it all the way.  The road is very rough with steep sections and 14 water crossings.  So we decided to hike in.  Hey, it’s only at 11,000 ft. altitude….

Admittedly, a rough hike but in beautiful surroundings.  And the falls were great, although probably a lot better earlier in the year with more water runoff.  So we hiked for some 6 miles with 1,300 ft.of vertical climbing.  Romola even managed to complete some of her least favorite hiking activities: crossing a creek on a log bridge.  This is what hiking is all about:  scenery, peacefulness, and no crowds.
