I have never been to Zapata Falls in the summer. We only ever go in the dead of winter, and we go for one reason - the stunning, amazing, frozen Zapata Waterfall. The good news is the coldest part of the journey, the approach, is done by car (a 4x4 is probably wise in the winter). The trailhead is a... 更多
We have hiked this twice. The drive to the trail head for Zapata Falls is a little rough! We see people taking their regular cars up the road. Eek! It's do able, but rough. The trail/hike isn't very long or hard. Depending on the year, there may be a lot of water or not very much. We waded in the... 更多
This is a great hike, cuz its not too hard for little kids, but challenging enough for older people to enjoy. Its about 1.5 miles, and I have done it when I've been very pregnant. Its fun in sun or snow, and beautiful in both. It's perfectly family friendly.
This is a small hike that you can only reach after a pretty bumpy dirt road. Someone mentioned boulders which we didn't encounter at all. But it's teeth rattlingly bumpy. The hike starts off pretty rocky and an average incline but it's only 1/4 mile so not terrible. The waterfalls are only visible after you hike a couple hundred feet... 更多
We enjoyed the route up toward the falls...a BLM road poorly maintained. We'd recommend a four-wheel drive rig. It's not that there are ruts.. or you might need a high- clearance vehicle. No, there are just thousands of large ROCKS in the road...makes for very slow going! That notwithstanding, the falls parking area is well inscribed with reader boards and... 更多
There is a good national forest campsite here, as well as the relatively short hike to the falls. The road up to the trail head and campground is really bumpy - lots of rocks.
As we drove by, we decided to see the falls on a whim. No research. Yes, the road is VERY rocky. I wouldn't describe it as a gravel road. We needed to weave from side to side to try avoiding the big rocks and rough spots. The hike up from the parking areas was do-able, even for we seniors in... 更多
The 3-4 mile road was extremely rocky...almost need a 4 wheel drive vehicle. Then once finally get to the top, there's a 1/4 mile hike up 400 ft in elevation across an even more rocky and treacherous trail. You finally get to the creek, and need to "follow the creek" a ways to see the falls. Only problem is, you... 更多
First ... the drive to the falls is on a poorly maintained gravel road that is VERY bumpy. I found it fun, my wife not so much. ;-) There is a short, up hill hike (15-20 minutes) to the river. Once there you have to hike in the river to the falls. Is it worth doing/seeing? Yes if you are... 更多
