Lower Calf Creek Falls is a stunning waterfall located in the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument. The trail to the falls is 6 miles round trip and follows Calf Creek through a scenic canyon.

Along the way, you will see ancient petroglyphs and pictographs on the canyon walls, as well as a variety of plants and wildlife. The trail is relatively easy and is suitable for hikers of all ages and skill levels. At the end of the trail, hikers are rewarded with the sight of the beautiful Lower Calf Creek Falls, which drops 126 feet into a pool of emerald green water.

You can swim in the pool beneath the falls, so we recommend grabbing your bathing suite for quite a refreshing experience in hot summer days.
