This canyon is owned and managed by the local Indian tribe. You will have to pay a fee to go in, but the money goes towards maintenance of the sight - it is really well cared for, with a visitors center, signage, good trails, and it is clean. This did not used to be the case before they took over the management The hike up to the falls is about a mile. Kids can do it, no problem. Along the way you can see nice desert plants, great rock formations, and an occasional mountain goat. (really!) At the end of the trail you will see a stunning waterfall that is deep enough to actually swim in if you dont mind really cold water. It was absolutely magical.
