Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Sitting Bull, a Dakota Sioux from the northern Great Plains, probably never set foot in New Mexico. But a much-repeated legend claims that cowboys chased a group of Indians that included the old chief into Sitting Bull Canyon and thereby discovered the falls. Unfortunately for the story, Sitting Bull was in Canada in 1881, the year of the reputed discovery."
