I accessed this waterfall from San Pedro Parks Wilderness San Gregorio Trailhead. Trail 51 took me 3-miles or more to Trail 417... then a mile or two to the Rio Puerco... where I left the trail and bushwhacked downstream a mile or two to the falls. This last mile is not for the faint-of-heart. There are no more waterfalls downstream... I walked all the way down and back... a huge day hike.
Sorry, no map
