This falls and Gila Falls are both close to where White Creek conflues with the West Fork of the Gila River… in fact we believe several of the near by creeks also display nice waterfalls. It is interesting that this waterfall is off-trail, out of sight and ear-shot from the trail. This is why hardly anyone knows that it is here.
White Creek Falls appears on the left-hand side of the map below. Please “right-click-save-as” on our map below to print your own hard copy to have in-hand during your hike.
