Clear Creek Trail

Trail Details

The Civilian Conservation Corps built the trail to Clear Creek in 1933. The northeast arm of Clear Creek Canyon, north of Honan Point, contains the highest waterfall in Grand Canyon. Most times of the year, Cheyava Falls is a mere trickle, but after a wet winter it gushes from the cliff face in a series of cascades. The Kolb brothers, early canyon photographers, first explored Cheyava Falls in 1903 after a prospector spotted what he thought was a cliff coated with a sheet of ice.
