Sitting Bull Falls Recreation Area is an oasis hidden in the midst of the desert where a beautiful 150-foot waterfall pours over canyon walls. You will also find cabanas with picnic tables, charcoal grills, drinking water, restrooms and a paved trail through the canyon ending at the falls. There are 16 miles of canyon land trails for hiking, biking and horseback riding. Sitting Bull Falls is a series of waterfalls located in a canyon in the Lincoln National Forest. The falls are fed by springs located in the canyon above. The water flows through a series of streams and pools until reaching the falls where it drops 150 feet into the canyon below. Most of the water disappears into the gravel or cracks in the rocks and either reappears in springs further down the canyon or joins the Pecos Valley underground water supply.
