Within the Sonoran Desert, The Crack is surrounded by riparian wilderness, and appears as an oasis amongst the rich orange rock. It’s a definite a vision after a somewhat difficult desert hike.
Huge cliffs that range in heights from 8-30 feet can be accessed by the brave. Be prepared for some chilly water when you make the plunge. Don’t worry, there’s water level access too, if you are not up for jumping. Swim, splash, or just lay back on a rock and soak up the sun.
