Fossil Creek

Fossil Creek, Arizona

The most clear, blue, turquoise water that I have seen in Arizona. A little piece of the Caribbean in the desert. ¬†Just 2.5 hours north of Phoenix, this oasis is the perfect day trip during a hot summer day. Get there early to beat the crowds (trust me, it’ll get packed after 10am). Parking permits are required April through October and are available at¬†www.recreation.gov. Parking lots open at 8am and it’s just a quick 30 minute walk along the river to the waterfall. Try and get a permit for Lot 05 Waterfall Trailhead Parking – it’s the closest to the trailhead.
