Montezuma Falls, Montezuma
(4.5/5 based on 850+ reviews on the web)
Take a steep but reasonably speedy 20-minute hike up the river, observing small water features, until you reach the majestic Montezuma Falls, a beautiful 24 m (78 ft) high cascade of water. Cool off in the large pool at the base of the falls, which is great for swimming, but too shallow for rock jumping. If you’re feeling a little more adventurous, scramble up the rough path on the left side of the falls to a deeper pool and a second waterfall, where you can jump safely. Wear sturdy boots, as you’ll have to navigate across slippery rocks throughout the hike. Our Montezuma trip itinerary maker makes visiting Montezuma Falls and other Montezuma attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.
