Explore one of Navajo Nation’s wonders. Grand Falls is a naturally-made, beautiful phenomenon that is hidden within the Navajo Nation. 150,000 years ago, with the eruption of Merriam Crater, a small cinder cone volcano produced a lava flow that traveled seven miles to this point and cascaded 200 feet down into the Little Colorado River gorge. The river was forced to create a new course, bending around the lava flow and then dropping back into its original channel, forming Grand falls.
The tour will start in Flagstaff, Az. Tour location meeting spot will be sent via email upon booking your tour.
We start at Grand falls and hike down to Little Colorado River, hiking through Little Colorado River for 2-3 miles then hiking up the canyon wall and onto the rim before hiking to Grand Falls. Intermediate hikers preferred; however, beginner hikers take note, this trail can become very vigorous very quickly.
