Calf Creek Falls drops 126 feet into a pool, creating a cool and verdant setting even on a hot summer's day. The 5.5-mile-roundtrip trail to it follows the creek upstream past mineral-stained cliffs of Navajo Sandstone with little elevation gain. It’s a moderate hike because the trail is sandy and has some steep sections. You might see prehistoric rock art and granaries on the canyon walls or signs of beaver along the creek. Many birds come, attracted by the streamside vegetation and perennial water. A pleasant campground at the trailhead (elev. 5,346 feet) offers sites with water, except in winter.
