Juan Tabo Canyon is subject to annual access closures from March 1 to August 15. MORE INFO >>>


Home of the Juan Tabo Waterfall - a rare Sandias ice climb fed by the drainage of Mummy Canyon & Pinnacle Valley.

Getting There 

Cross Waterfall Canyon about a half mile along the Piedra Lisa trail. Unmaintained track gains 700 feet at the waterfall some 3/4 mile in. The canyon floor lies just outside the area of the annual raptor closure which takes effect March 1 - generally too late in the season to ice climb anyway.
