Breathtaking!!!

Although difficult to get to, and seasonal in nature, Grand Falls of the Little Colorado River is without doubt one of the natural wonders of Northern Arizona. Fantastic!!!

It is a very long ride out to the falls but definitely worth it. even though there was no water flowing when we went the area is incredible.

Ride out there is great. So sad there wasn't water over the falls. Drought is bad everywhere. The road is washboard for the last 10 miles but we took our SUV no problems. Don't go if it's raining the road would be terrible. Worth the drive even without water on the falls, still an amazing view. Probably a three hour... More

Went today as others had said it was flowing. Just a bit of a trickle today. I can see it would be great if flowing more. Road in for the last 7 miles was wash boarded, stones, rocks and dirt so go slow.

We had a bit of difficulty finding the Falls as the directions indicated we went into Leupp from Flagstaff, or until we saw the signs. We asked in Leupp and realized we had gone too far east on the 505, so we backtracked. The road (70) is signposted for the Grand Falls Church as you approach from the west; the... More

this is a great off road adventure that I only read about from these reviews. We were lucky enough to go after some rain had moved through and saw the falls in action. The drive to it is a dirt road. Hint : Print directions out before you go. You may lose cell signal in the remote area. Very cool

It was really wonderful to picnic at the edge and just watch the falls. It was the most relaxing thing I have done in a long time. The Navajo Nation charged us absolutely nothing to visit this incredible beauty.

Some people have said it isn't worth while going. I beg to differ. It is an amazing place and the water runs not only in the spring but at other times as well. Whenever it rains heavily and during the monsoon season, the water runs very well. Chocolate Falls/Grand Falls is a natural waterfall system located 30 miles northeast of... More

This is so hard to get to that it really isn't worth it unless the falls are running, which is the spring time. There were no vendors, this place is totally isolated, so I think another reviewer had this confused with another location. That said, if you visit in the spring you will find it worth the adventure!

This is where the Wallenda guy walked across a tight rope. Besides great views, there are Navajo Indians selling plenty of trinkets to take home to the kids.
