Grand Canyon Waterfalls
Some of the most inspiring photos of Grand Canyon include the beautiful waterfalls that you will find deep within the canyon so it can be disappointing if you expect to see waterfalls on a short visit to the canyon. To see some waterfalls, a long and strenuous day hike is required and, but for most park waterfalls, a multi-day backpacking trip is required. For those lucky enough to take a Grand Canyon river trip, many of these waterfalls are much more easily accessed from the Colorado River. If you know that won’t have the time to adventure into the backcountry is search of these beautiful waters, time your trip during monsoon season (mid-June through mid-September) to give yourself the best chance to see some ephemeral waterfalls pouring over the rims of the canyon after a big rain storm!
