The upper falls tumbles over the red layered rock formations--a sight to see in Bandelier National Monument. 

Park at the Bandelier Visitor Center. The trailhead is down the road (the direction you came from). There are steep dropoffs along this trail so exercise caution, and be aware than in winter the trail may be icy. The Lower Falls trail is closed due to flooding.
