Havasu, Mooney And Beaver are all beautiful!
Definitely worth the hike.

Check out my videos of the hike and the camp ground.

Definitely a tough hike. Went up the old trail and down the new. Old trail was pretty wet/muddy for the first 1.5miles. snow and ice the last mile. Snow was super soft the last half mile push and was tough even with microspikes. the new trail seems exceptionally easy albeit long after the steep climb up. Fun and challenging trail though.

As of 4.14 the mountain loop highway was closed 10 miles out from hike.

Heading back soon as I was unable to complete due to work ;( Expect this trail to take a minimum of 3 hours at a decent pace (3 mph average)

Not a bad little trail. My first ever Washington hike. Very nice!

Awesome..made it today inspite if severe snow storm & rain...

Please research how these people treat their animals before paying the astronomical permit fees to visit. The waterfalls are nice, but not worth the suffering that the animals endure bc of the tourists. And please, for the love of god, carry your own things and DO NOT HIRE HORSES.

Done it for first time twice in one day part of our training for Himalayas. 8.000 ft vertical gain and descent in a day is not bad. The trail is great experience and training ground to. The old trail requires a level of fitness but is doable for a beginner in shape. Amazing you have perfect phone signal.

Limited parking so go early. Good trail. creek crossing a bit tricky but the views at end are worth it. would do this again.

We spent the night at a hotel and drove to the Hilltop parking lot in the morning. Started our decent at 7:45am, made it to Supai around 11am to check-in. Going in was long but manageable with two short breaks. Took a longer break in Supai. Roughly a 2 mile walk to the campground, trail is well traversed so I felt it was easy to identify.

The trail down to Mooney is not as well marked. There is a tube you descend to ladders and chains that are very wet due to the spray from the waterfall. Trail down to Beaver is well-traveled and you will cross the river three times on the trail I followed. I think the mileage on the map provided at check-in is inaccurate but I didn't track it via GPS.

Hike out is strenuous with a steep section starting at Havasu Falls that is maybe .5 miles. Then it's just long with gradual incline until the last 1.5 miles (estimate). Then it is a decent incline for about a mile and a steep ascent the last .5 mile. Slow and steady with lots of water and you'll make it.

We carried our own gear and made from Supai to Hilltop in 4 hours. We are in average shape and in our 40's.

The campgrounds are tight and there isn't a lot of room between, so privacy isn't an option. There is a fresh water spring, so water isn't a problem in camp. You can grab food in Supai at the market or the cafe, which can help reduce pack weight (limited options, so don't only rely on it). There is frybread for sale almost daily in camp. There are compost toilet but bring your own paper, as it runs out fast.

It was worth trip. Reservations go the day open for the year. We went in March and it was perfect for hiking and sleeping not so much if you want warm weather for swimming.

So amazing!! Fairly easy hike getting there, as most of it was downhill. Getting back to the trail head was a whole ‘nother story because it was mostly uphill, but honestly the struggle was worth it. The falls were so beautiful and blue, it was surreal. Bathrooms are pretty decent for the most part, but bring wipes just in case because not all of the stalls have toilet paper. Campsite was nicely spread out, first come first serve basis for camp spots. Permits were a pain to get, but I would do it all over again.

The hike is through a gorgeous canyon and would honestly be worth it on its own. The falls are an amazing bonus!

Be careful not to swim too close to the base of the falls.

Well worth the headache of getting a permit!

Spikes were definitely needed. I wish I had poles. Old trail was very icey and hard to manage with how steep it was. It was still very satisfying to make it to the top. My Fitbit tracked close to 4 miles up the old trail and 6 miles down the new.

Amazing beauty of the canyon, crystal clear rivers, and unbelievable falls. Trails are well managed and camping area is perfect.

Easy hike definitely not moderate. Only downside was it was not well marked but we didn't have too much issue navigating. Muddy. Pretty falls.

I am trying to get a permit for 2 of us and I can’t get thru the phone lines. I have called continuously but no answer. Any suggestions on how else I can purchase a couple nights stay for 2 possibly 3 of us? Would they help me if I drive all the way there? Please email me if you have suggestions : chapis503@outlook.com

Simply beautiful!!! Bring microspikes.

This hike wasn’t tough. It’s easy not moderate. Signage was really bad, went the wrong way twice. Nice stroll though. Wear boots...there is a good amount of mud and 2-3 washed out sections.

Quick and easy hike without hardly any elevation change. The falls at the end of this trail are pretty. It was moderately trafficked in the middle of the day. There are a couple spots where you need to cross the water, so be prepared for that.

It’s a long hike but the lake is beautiful. The water reflects the surroundings and it looks like a mirror.

So fun! And easy, great walk through the woods with abandoned cars along the way!

Hard but worth it

very easy hike with such a gorgeous waterfall at the end. definitely worth the free hours in and out. definitely must on spots close to the falls.

AMAZING. Honestly no words.

Such a beautiful place to go and see nature. The hike in was roughly 12 miles in (not the 10 everyone says). We checked in at the village and were on our way. There isn’t any signs along the way to let us know we were heading in the right direction so we used other hikers as our “guides” to know we were heading in the right direction. When we reached the first “fall” it was a disappointment (only because I thought that was where we were suppose to be and that was it). Keep going, pass the signs that say “Dangerous Unstable Ground” and pass the grave yard. When you are getting nervous you will never make it, just go a little further and you are there. This place is totally worth the sore muscles and exhaustion. We did put up our tent in close to the Natural Spring water (really made life easier to be so close to the fresh water). The hike out is daunting, tiring and makes you question every poor life choice but when you reach the top and are back in the comfort of your own vehicle, it makes you feel accomplished. Wear good supportive shoes, take ONLY what you need and hand sanitizer NEEDS to make it in your pack. Females, be prepared to “hover” in the bathrooms. Most importantly....enjoy the place....it’s absolutely beautiful and magical.

It was an amazing experience!

This hike was great if you want to be ensconced in the beautiful trees of the PNW. Beautiful, Easy trail with some descent signs so didn’t get lost. The trail is rated as moderate but I would say it is on the easier side. (And I am not an expert hiker) We did have to cross the creek on a log...probably the most difficult part, but you can just cross easily if you don’t mind getting a bit wet.

Absolutely amazing!
