Narrow canyon with high walls, similar to Titus. From parking area, hike north along base of mountains ½ mile to large wash , then up into Fall Canyon. At 3 miles you reach a dry fall, which can be passed on the south side with moderate difficulty. Day -use is heavy below dry falls. Backpackers should plan on camping beyond that point. No camping within 2 miles of the road.
