At the floor of the canyon you'll have two hours to experience the canyon's beauty. Enjoy scenic walks, explore one of the four waterfalls or climb to the stunning lookout platform 250 feet above the tracks.

As the rail line hugs the top of the canyon wall, you'll descend 500 feet over the next 10 miles to the floor of the Agawa Canyon, created more than 1.2 billion years ago by faulting and widened and reshaped by the last ice-age that retreated 10,000 years ago.
