This twisting, deep canyon in the colorful Grapevine Mountains features one of the most spectacular canyon narrows in the park. Do not attempt this hike if wet weather appears likely. Fall Canyon is highly susceptible to ash flooding. You could easily be trapped in one of the narrow stretches of the canyon by a raging torrent if caught during a mountain storm. From the parking area at the mouth of Titus Canyon, hike north on an unsigned but easy-to-follow user trail, climbing gradually across several low ridges and gullies. At 0.5 mile the trail enters a side wash and then swings to the right (north) toward Fall Canyon.
