The walk to this waterfall (either 500 m or 1km, depending on where you park the vehicle) is so beautiful. It is an easy track in pine woodlands. We arrived at about 8.30 am before the large numbers of visitors arrived and before the masses of stalls of Indian crafts were set up. It was quiet, fresh, peaceful, with birdsongs.
The waterfall is very deep and viewing points have been set up to allow for varied viewpoints. We walked down the 200 or so steps to the base of the waterfall. That was good. The steps are many but they are well constructed and are spaced well with just the right depth to make the climb back up quite ok.

Great Hike in a beautiful place. A leisurely hike to the falls with native craft shopping along the way. The hike to the bottom of the falls is composed of cement steps, so more of a challenge on the way up. Really nice!

Definitely worth a visit to these pretty falls and beautiful scenery. We were concerned as there hadn't been much rain that there wouldn't be falls to see.... but all good! You really need a four wheel drive to go across the river and uneven dirt tracks. Lots of locals selling their wares on the trek to the best viewing spot.

My wife and I, with a small group of fellow travelers, hiked into the Cusarare Falls, guided by some delightful and helpful Tarahumara Indian children. The hiking trail is scenic. From the parking lot to the falls, there are stands where Tarahumara women sell art (beautiful baskets, applique work, carvings etc). The falls are not Niagara or Iguassu! But they are beautiful, especially considering the stream is intermittent in a high desert region. An altogether pleasant experience.

We visited the Falls on Christmas Day as part of a 3 day tour of the Copper Canyon and Batopilas. It's an easy hike to get to the Falls and the view is spectacular. Make sure you go down to the base of the Falls for a brilliant view, steps lead down to the base, so it's an easy path. Well worth calling in to look at if you're going to Batopilas.

We walked to the falls during the rain, very muddy, but well worth the trip. Two Tarahumara girls showed us a trail down, and we enjoyed them, gave them about ten bucks plus some candy and chocolate. The falls were bursting because of the heavy rains, not sure how they are other times. The culture of the Tarahumara is very primitive, very interesting, but they are tough, and not too friendly with tourists, except for the kids. They don't like to barter, and don't like their pictures taken, and won't smile. But the falls are worth seeing. Breathtaking scenery. The trip down to the falls is doable, but when we went it was pouring rain.

Very nice falls, about 15 meters high and very wide. Really quite spectacular during the rainy season when it's flowing at full capacity, not so much the rest of the year and at times it's just a trickle. Very nice hike to get there and often there are Tarahumara women selling their baskets along the trail. I should mention that the basketwork done in Cusarare is unique to that place and is done with pine needles using a coil and stitch technique. Very beautiful craftwork!

This falls are very nice, a little dry since it was not during the rainy season. I was told in September they are better. I did not go all the way down since you have to go down 250 steps, not good for my High Blood Pressure. But I did walk around it and took some great pictures. The tarahumara kids were so helpful guiding my mom, my friend and my self. Make sure if you use their services tip them please!
