“a hidden hike that leads to a secret waterfall”

The Pine Canyon Trail is a not-frequently traversed hiking trail, but after a heavy rain the payoff can be pretty spectacular as it leads to a waterfall. Though most of the year there's just a trickle, after a downpour, there's a substantial cascade that makes this hike absolutely worth it. According to Trails.com: This trail provides expansive views of high desert grasslands and the drier desert below before leading into a densely wooded canyon of the Chisos Mountains. Because Lloyd Wade once had a ranch here, the canyon was called Wade Canyon at one time. The trail crosses part of an ancient collapsed volcano, or caldera. The hike is hot in summer, but still considerably cooler than the desert lowlands. Get an early start during the warm months of the year, and carry lots of water. Plenty of shade on the last 0.6 mile makes the hike pleasant even on hot days.
