Havasupai Falls is a 20.4 mile heavily trafficked out and back trail located near Supai, AZ that features a waterfall and is only recommended for very experienced adventurers. The trail offers a number of activity options and is accessible from March until October.
The Havasupai Reservation is located in one of the most beautiful and remote areas of the western Grand Canyon. The Village of Supai, is located in Havasu Canyon, a southwestern branch of the Grand Canyon, and is accessible only by foot, horseback, or helicopter. It is an eight mile hike to get to Supai via the Hualapai Trail which leaves from Hualapai Hilltop. This can take from 3 to 6 hours walking or 3 to 5 hours riding, depending upon the physical shape you are in, or how well you ride a horse.
Wow. It's pretty hard to describe how amazing this place is. It exceeded all of my expectations. Waterfalls, Sun, Swimming, Rain, and Camping.
This may be the Garden of Eden. The colors and sights are absolutely surreal. An incredible and challenging hike. I backpacked in during the end of April and temperatures were perfect.
Amazing views at the waterfalls and getting to swim in the pools below was awesome. The hike itself isn't too bad, you hike down a canyon then the rest of it is a pretty easy walk along the flat canyon floor.
love love love this place
best hardest most fun hike,of my life
Nothing beats this hidden paradise. Plan well ahead and pack light. 100% worth the hike in and out. Doing this again for sure.
Gorgeous hike and even prettier destination. Very difficult hike back out, however.
Garden or Eden in the desert. The 1800 ft ascent after nearly 40 miles nearly killed me. Overall, the pics tell it all. There is a natural spring in the campground to get more water, this is the halfway point to the river and the halfway point on the way out to the parking lot. As the nearest hotel is about an hour away, many drive to the trailhead and sleep in their cars. Make sure to get a permit, or you'll pay the steep fine of $88. With a permit it is half that, $44, but the campground books up nearly a year in advance. An absolute bucket list item, and so glad we did the full forty plus miles to see the falls and the blue green water!
The most breathtaking hike so far. Jade color water. Every fall had several cascades. There are lots of falls you can see but this one you can see, feel and experience. Every corner has another wonderful beauty hiding. A must for people who love nature and beauty.
Amazing place. Pictures do not do justice to the awesome beauty of this oasis in the heart of the Grand Canyon. 10 stars...
Amazing. Hiked about 30 miles over the course of 3 days. Don't forget to book either the Lodge or camping-if you don't you may hike 8 miles in & 8 miles out for nothing. We booked well over a year in advance
Bring: your reservation, sunscreen, plenty of water, plenty of socks, and leave your fear of heights at the door (Mooney Falls climb down is pretty sketchy & pretty scary but it's the ONLY way to Beaver Falls).
This was the trip of a lifetime!!
Would really love to do this. I just need some advice. What to bring? How long did it take? Any tips?!
Awesome experience with family and friends! We happened to go during the weekend with a record-setting heatwave of 115-plus degrees that occurs about once every 40 years. We didn't get much sleep and hiked over 20-plus miles within a 24 hr period. Some of us hiked additional hours for photographic opportunities. Wonderful time for everyone and we even had a surprise engagement proposal for one of our couples. A group of us also hiked the 8-10 miles back to the Hilltop; the rest flew back via helo. Major accomplishment for everyone. #NextTripCrew
