Our We Click Phoenix Meetup group headed to Fossil Creek before the busy summer season hits and permits are required. We parked at the Water Fall Trail parking area and it is about a 1 mile hike to the fall. Unfortunately in the winter/spring the water isn’t as clear/blue as it is in the summer. From what I understand this is due to the snow melt/mountain runoff. It was still a great hike and while the color wasn’t best for pictures we did run into some kayakers and waterfall jumpers. I only got my feet in the water and it was freezing, so I props to them!
