Enjoy the Falls
(the Deadliest Place in Southern Arizona!)
Enjoy Tanque Verde Falls but remember that most of the time the water is not flowing like the Video, and its extremely difficult to get to these locations. You must be in good shape, and an avid hiker prepared to go over boulders and rocks often wet and slippery. The safest route to the Canyon is taking the South Trail. Always be aware of the surrounding conditions and never enter the Canyon when it has recently rained. Sometimes it takes hours for the water to collect off the surrounding mountains and all of the water funnels through the Tanque Verde Canyon creating walls of water. The water can rise within seconds stranding hiker and often taking their lives, their children and loved ones as well as their animals.
