Grand Falls, the Chocolate Falls in Arizona

The Grand Falls are a natural waterfall located in the Painted Desert of Arizona. Known as Chocolate Falls, due to the color of the extremely muddy waters, they are located exactly near the city of Flagstaff, within a Navajo Reservation. These are the highest in the state, and even higher than Niagara Falls, towering at 56 meters.



These beautiful waterfalls are formed by the waters of the Little Colorado, fed by the melting of snow and seasonal rains of the White Mountains. They reach a truly remarkable water flow during flood periods, most especially between March and April when the snow melts and the river begins to widen. It brings with it all the colors of the earth and becomes one of the most majestic sceneries in Arizona.



The Chocolate Falls are located in quite an isolated area and the roads leading to are not paved, though kept in good condition. The falls can be reached by car along the road south of the Little Colorado River, but past this point it is necessary to rely on the guidance of an expert Navajo. It is a good idea to plan your route in advance, and keep in mind that you will need to obtain a permit to enter the Indian reservation.
