Trail Overview

Earp Falls is created by seepage from Copper Basin Reservoir and is a perennial waterfall. The associated wash is verdant with palm trees and other vegetation not commonly found in this area. The water is cold and clear. This trail is rated 4 from the north end to just south of Earp Falls. There is a 6-rated obstacle just south of Earp Falls. The trail is also rated 4 beyond the obstacle but there is no go-around. Stock Jeeps can easily visit desert art and the falls along the north part of the trail then turn around. Well-equipped ones can continue on. There are a couple of dozen displays of desert art created with colored rocks near the north end of the trail. A short walk off the road. Continuing south of Earp Falls requires fording the creek and climbing over a 6-rated obstacle.
