Sitting Bull Falls - Review
Replenishing the arid canyon of the Lincoln National Forest with its striking presence, the Sitting Bull Falls covers a height of 150 meters into the canyon and disappears just as quickly into the underground water system through cracks and crevices.
The falls belong to the Capitan Great Barrier Reef that dates back to the Permian period which was surrounded by sea on all sides about 250 million years ago! Today, the dry desert climate even though quiet tricky to climb, is still worth the visit to see the gorgeous view all around.

Sitting Bull Falls, Carlsbad Reviews
Really enjoyed the trip out there. It's out of the way a bit but still kind of busy, but the waterfall is beautiful and the water is shallow enough to walk around and explore around it. A great way to spend a hot day
Beautiful waterfall & breathtaking scenery. Worth the drive. Perfect picnic areas. Please keep your trash off of the ground.
Great place to take entire family water is the right depth for my little ones to explore
So beautiful. Recommend for anybody visiting town
A must see location it is worth the drive!
