Trail Overview

This trail starts at the Bunkerville Choo Choo Trail at the Nickle Creek Wash. The trail will head up into the mountain and follow the wash, either directly in the wash or alongside it. The trail will dead-end with a small area for 4-6 machines to park. Depending on the recent rainfall or snow melt, you will see the water flowing here. This will be the beginning of a desert oasis that starts high up in the Virgin Mountains. The creek got its name from all of the tiny garnets that sparkle in the water. The best is yet to come! With a short hike upstream to the lower falls, the beauty is amazing. For the more adventurous hikers, climbing up farther is well worth the effort. The upper falls have carved out the rocks and offer fantastic colors in the layers. You will find the air cooler here, and the only audible sound is the water flowing. It is a truly phenomenal natural wonder in an otherwise dry area.
