Wolf Creek falls is Prescott's tallest waterfall and just a short hike away. This seasonal creak may be covered in ice in the winter but provides great swimming holes in the heat of the summer during monsoon season.
Wolf Creek Falls - the larger falls
Trail Access - Trail 384
Wolf Creek Falls - the smaller falls
Take Senator Hwy past Groom Creek untill the road turns to dirt. Just past the YMCA camp on your right, turn right onto Wolf Creek Rd towards Wolf Creek Campground. Pass the campground and continue to the trail sign 384. The trail crosses Wolf Creek Rd and there is a sign on both sides of the road. The trail to Wolf Creek Falls is the one on the left that hikes down into the gorge. You may need to drive a bit farther or turn around to find a good place to park. There is not a designated parking area.
Hike distance - 0.5 miles or 1 mile roundtrip
From the access trail, hike about 0.3 miles slightly downhill until you reach Wolf Creek. To hike the easiest trail, cross the creek and take the first trail to your right. This trail parallels the creek. Within a few minutes you will see the first and smaller set of falls on your right (see photo). Many braided trails access these falls. If you continue a little further you can access the larger set of falls, seen in the photo above. The trail to these falls are a little steeper and many take a bit of scrambling around on tree roots and boulders. If you continue to scramble past these two sets of falls, before long Wolf Creek empties into Hassayampa Creek.
