Kanarra Falls is the gem of Kanarraville and a main attraction for hikers who come by the thousands every year. The creek comes off Kanarra Mountain and down through red slot canyons to make its way into the valley where it’s used for irrigation water for local farmers and residents. The creek runs all year over a series of small falls.
This is a permitted hike that is open all year long. The number of hikers is limited to 150 a day, so advance reservations are strongly encouraged. Permits are $12 and can be purchased at kanarrafalls.com. For additional information about Kanarra Falls, please see our website kanarrafalls.com.
Spring Creek is the lesser known of the Kanarraville hikes. This hike follows Spring Creek up the canyon to the narrows. The distance from the trailhead to the start of the narrows is approximately 1 ½ miles. You can make this hike as long or short as you like, however, to fully explore the canyon plan on approximately 4 hours. The spring has long since dried up, however, if it’s been a wet year, you will see some water.
The trailhead starts about a mile south of town. Going south, bear left off Old Highway 91 at Spring Creek Road, posted just at the Kanarraville town limits. After about half a mile, the road leads to a turnaround parking area on BLM land. This hike is free of charge and there is a vault toilet available in the parking lot.
