Cool off. In secluded Cibecue, a secret waterfall offers wet refreshment on warm summer days.

Right Now

The city of Cibecue, a secluded small town located in the White Mountains Apache Reservation, holds a wonderful secret: Nearby, a moderate hike leads to refreshing waters flowing through towering canyon walls.

The White Mountains Apache Reservation is home to a place few know, Cibecue Canyon. It’s a side canyon of the Salt River outside of Globe with a waterfall that plunges 80 feet to clear pools below.

The moderate 2.5-mile canyoneering hike traverses through a gorgeous variety of foliage including ferns, tamarisks, willows, and yuccas. Take off your shoes and socks and get wet! The cool, mineral-rich water is reward for your efforts. Just remember to obtain a tribal permit before you embark on your adventure.
