I'm not sure if, when the rest of the world imagines Arizona, they imagine all these unique little spots like Grand (Chocolate) Falls. I certainly didn't. Grand Falls is actually taller than the falls at Niagara, but it varies in flow depending on the season, so keep that in mind if your visit takes you there in the dry months.... More

Great trip with family. We were fortunate to go after monsoon rains and the dirty water was running. It is off the beaten path a bit, but well worth the effort. There is a trail down to the falls - moderate difficulty. If the water is running the mist coming from the falls is muddy and you will get dirty... More

First of all there was no WATER!!! but that's ok!!! It was such a unique experience to share with the kids. Quality time!! I am sure they will not forget our experience. Second it is very off the grid!!! So don't depend on road signs to get there. Once you turn right to take Luep Road for 14 miles. stay... More

At certain times of the area, water flows down from the mountains and turn into ''chocolate milk'' as it mixes with the dirt and minerals of the Arizonian desert. Not for swimming in, but there are look out points where you can take pictures til your heart's content and just gaze at nature's work.

I'll keep this simple. You can find directions online. There is no sign to direct you to the Falls. And if you drive anything smaller than an SUV, you'll be sorry. Grand Falls is many miles off the beaten path. It's at least a half-day trip from Flagstaff. Not because of the distance. The roads you take to get there... More

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
