A rare gem in the hot desert, Sitting Bull Falls Recreation Area is an oasis offering cool pools of water and the awesome Sitting Bull Falls. There's access to many trails and it's just an hour and twenty minutes away with beautiful scenery along the way. It's also somewhat close to Carlsbad…

Another Must See. Wear your suite, take a picnic, and make a day of it. Two waterfalls run almost year round. Several pools sit at the base of these waterfalls.

Small water fall with accessible pools for wading; some hiking trails. Beautiful place for a picnic, bring plenty of water!

Restaurant
“For some impressively creative dishes, Yellow Brix Restaurant should be your first stop in Carlsbad. You might want to go in for a full three-course meal, as you shouldn’t miss their soups, salads, and appetizers. Both their steaks and seafood come highly recommended, and of course, you can’t forget dessert.”

Bar
“The Trinity Hotel Restaurant was originally built in 1892 as a bank, and over a century later, a brave group of investors decided to save it from many years of decay and turn it into a charming hotel and restaurant. They offer both a selection of fresh steaks and a menu of Italian cuisine, so there’s really something for every taste.”
