Description

Access this trail from the Douglas Springs Trail at the 2.5 m trail intersection. The trail can be overgrown and hard to see at times. Horseback riders have a hitching post up toward the trail end.

The short journey up the canyon is beautiful even when it's hot. The falls at the end make it worth the trip, as they're a wonderful place to relax and enjoy the shade and the water. There are pesky gnats, but they're looking for moisture and don't bite. These little guys are just part of the whole nature experience!

Flora & Fauna

Saguaros, barrel cactus, prickly pear as well as acatia bushes, mesquite and cottonwood trees are in abundance in the area. Reptiles from small lizards and snakes to bobcats and deer have been seen the area.

A view looking up at Bridal Wreath Canyon.

The trail crosses the wash... depending on time of year and weather can be dry or full and flowing really well.

Bridal Wreath has a slight incline for a short distance. The vegetation is heavier. Trail can be overgrown.

Looking at the falls. There are times when it's wall-to-wall water. A look above the rocks reveals a 3.5 ft garter snake.

After some wayfinding up the wash getting closer to the falls. This is a look back out toward the Catalina Mountains.

A nice place to rest, enjoy the shade and the sound of running water. Feels good to stick your head under the cold waterfall.
