How do you hike Water Wheel Falls? Finding Water wheel Falls is pretty easy and it is an amazing hike for all hike skill-levels and families!
It is close to Payson as well which makes it a perfect spot to visit if you end up spending the weekend in the area. Combining it with Tonto Natural Bridge or Fossil Springs would be the ultimate weekend to an amazing weekend trip.
The hike is relatively short making it great for families to bring the kids to with a lunch and hangout playing in the water. The hike can be a little challenging in spots pending water levels so be sure to wear proper shoes to avoid slipping or hurting yourself on the loose rocks.
Don’t expect a challenging hike but you can continue up past the falls to Ellison Creek to see more little swimming holes and small falls that are pretty to see as well. The hike is something to check out if in the area and definitely worth combining it with other hikes in the area.
