Chiva Falls, or as the local residents call it, Chivo Falls, is one of the most favored challenging trails in the Tucson area. This trail has a couple of different four-wheeling challenges while traveling out to a 75-foot waterfall and the spectacular views of Mount Lemmon and the Rincon Mountain region. The waterfall that the trail is named for does not continuously run; therefore, planning around the weather is critical to have the complete experience. Fall and Spring offer the best chances for catching the water flowing over the falls. The area is incredibly scenic with pristine desert landscapes, with the destination point being the trail's namesake. Driving up above the falls, where you can lounge in one of the many pools, is another bonus when the water flows. This is a great trail to challenge yourself and to take in some of the best scenery in all of Arizona.
