Walk Behind A Waterfall For A One-Of-A-Kind Experience In Arizona
There’s no denying the grandeur of places like
Havasu and Mooney, but it would be unjust not to recognize any other waterfalls in Arizona. Ribbon Falls is an incredibly unique place within the Grand Canyon that allows visitors to walk behind it and witness the roaring stream right before their eyes. See for yourself:
Ribbon Falls is accessible from Phantom Ranch, making it the only waterfall you can get to without backpacking or rafting. It's a roughly 14-mile hike; however, the difficulty is minimal.
Along the trail, you'll cross a wooden bridge with panoramic views of the surrounding desert landscape. It's hard to beat this picture-perfect scenery, but right around the corner is a sight that does just that.
Behold, this 100-foot-tall roaring stream that spills into a mineral-laden pool below. The moss-covered rock beneath the falls creates a stark contrast between red rock and lush greenery guaranteed to captivate anyone all who visit.
Many people aren't even aware that Ribbons Falls exists because it's hiding in a lightly-trafficked side canyon. Its remoteness only adds to the mystique, creating a secret garden vibe that can only be understood through firsthand experience.
Another little-known fact about this incredible waterfall is that you can walk behind it! Stare in awe at the sheer power of Mother Nature as the water pours down right before your eyes. This unique, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity is unlike anything in all of Arizona.
Once it warms up a bit, feel free to take a dip in the spring before embarking on your journey back. You'll leave with unforgettable memories to cherish forever!
