To Do! Map

AMAZING. Honestly no words.

One of my favorite trails thus far. It requires a good push as most of the trail is on an incline. The view from the top is incredibly spectacular and beyond worth the struggle towards the peak.

We are not avid hikers and we still managed to complete the trail close to an hour and a half. It is so worth it!!!

We wore crampons and wished we had brought poles as well. However, we were hiking on a fresh batch of snow so poles are probably not needed when the path is beat down.

The weather at the top is quite chilly. We encountered a swift wind as we left the tree line to reach the peak. Prepare accordingly!

Very crowded. Good mountain views and nice lake.

Absolutely amazing 360degree views from the peak! Great hike!!

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!

Great winter hike. Snow was pretty packed down and not much ice.

Amazing hike, weather is getting warmer. Just be a little careful now , ensure proper gear is on hand.

Always love this hike in the fall but this was the first winter attempt and it was stunning. Lots of elevation over a short distance but the trail is well kept and easy to follow due to its popularity.

We had a south western wind so it got a bit unpleasant out of the treeline but it’s not far from the treeline to the peak. The winds made it so cold up there my iphone wouldn’t work, sapped the battery in about 2 minutes of photos. I’d recommend tech gloves, face masks and a charger pack to anyone else looking for some great shots at the top.

We wore spikes (small ones) and used poles and that was plenty of grip and stability. Otherwise it was a fantastic sunny day and a beauty of a mountain.

Absolutely amazing!

My favourite hike of all time.

AMAZING views! Awesome waterfalls! Must do again!

Best ever!!!❤️

Trail is in good shape. Some people in boots have made the first bit rough but clears up soon. Beautiful views & no one else on the trail!

lucky enough to snag one of the coveted permits this year. unbelievable experience the entire way

Absolutely beautiful hike! the first 8 miles is within the canyon and it was the most beautiful scenery! the campgrounds were awesome! almost every spot is near the water and you're an easy walk to Mooney and havasu! if you have the ability and the time to go to beaver falls DO IT! the hike was SO much different from the rest of the hike and you do a lot of water crossing and the scenery is way different! It was so much fun actually. glad I made the trek down Mooney Falls. disclaimer: the trek down Mooney Falls is not for the feint of heart! But it is absolutely possible to do so don't let it freak you out at first glance! I'm glad I did this in February but if you do this in summer months you will need a lot.of water for the first part of the hike! also bring wet shoes if you do the water crossing!

One of the world’s most beautiful places. So lucky to have gotten a permit. Went in mid February and it was absolutely beautiful. The hike is relatively easy except for making it the last mile up on your way back.

Pack a lot of water and high energy foods (protein bars, etc.) as you’ll need it on the way out!

Such a rewarding hike.

Sunny but a bit cold at the top with the wind.
Challenging hike because of the snow, the last 200 meters are tricky.
Clits not essential but recommended.
Awesome views as soon as you leave the forest.

It's hard to imagine a better hike anywhere in the United States than this one. It is absolutely required to have a permit and they are pretty difficult to acquire. The tribe begins selling them for the calendar year on February 1. They sell out within a day or two. We have done this trail twice in October. It is in quite a remote area with the nearest town (to the trailhead) being Peach Springs Arizona. The hike in is fairly easy but does seem to take a while due to the fact that you are walking through sand. You hike and hike through red rock canyon and the canyon becomes increasingly narrow. It's a beautiful hike. The village of Supai greets you about two miles before your ultimate destination - the campground. The village features a few buildings and the particular ones of interest for backpackers are the camping office where you check in, receive your wrist bands, and pay (I believe for 2018 it has changed and you now pay in advance. When we went in 2015 and 2016, you paid in person). There is also a small fast-food style restaurant that we ate entirely too much food in, making the last two miles pretty uncomfortable. It's hard to resist some tater tots and a cold drink (non-alcoholic, alcohol is completely banned on the reservation so don't bring any) after a long, hot, dusty walk through the desert.

The hike out is retracing your steps but obviously you are going uphill. This trail differs from the trails in the Grand Canyon National Park in that the steep parts are all at the end (when you're leaving). The last 1.5 miles (and first 1.5 miles when hiking down) are steep switchbacks. You hit these when you are tired on the way out and probably when it's hot. I wouldn't want to do this trail in the summer. It was warm enough for me in October.

This is my favorite hiking or camping experience I have ever had. Be aware of the rules, regulations, and permit requirements.

One of the best hikes I've ever been on! Definitely try to get permits for this place. We wrote up a full review of the trail with tips and details on permitting and hiking the trail here: https://www.shedreamsofalpine.com/blog/your-complete-guide-to-hiking-havasu-falls-trail
A must do!

very challenging but once you get up there it is all worth the climb!

Great climb even with snow

Awesome views

Backpacked over an extended weekend here. Permits were somewhat difficult to obtain to get on the reservation itself. Fairly flat hike in (except in/ out of the valley). We started very early in the morning but the hike did get very hot during midday sun. No need for a guide, everything was easily followed. The views and waterfalls were out of this world. We happens to take this trip when the Milky Way was above the falls, it was a once in a lifetime experience. This definitely was on my bucket list. Only disappointment was the amount of trash left at parts of the trail. It was definitely worth it, I would recommend this!

Hiked from Lake Moraine over Sentinel Pass all the way to Lake Louise. Beautiful but long. Saw wolverines and heard glaciers calving. Highly recommended.

Good, steep hike. 3 hours to summit and around 2.5 to decent. the views were decent.

knee high snow but worth it

Hey Guys!
My name is Mo from Germany.
I guess my review might be more interesting for international guests.
As you already read .... there is no day hike allowed and nearly impossible. It s so amazing down there that just one or two hours aren’t enough.
I tried to plan the trip on my own a year before and tried to call the front desk of the visitor center in havasu.
It was very hard to reach someone. After 6 month of permanent calling a women took off the phone and just told me that there are no places available anymore.
I was very frustrated and scared that I could not make a hook on my bucketlist.
I was browsing through the internet to find any other way to stay in havasu.
Finally I found the company AOA Arizona Outback Adventures. They are offering guided tours down to the village.
To be honest ..... it was expensive but definitely worth it. I booked a three day two nights tour.

We met our guides Izzy and Sam early in the morning close to hilltop.
There we had a quick safety briefing and a breakfast. They also provided us with care packages.
In the canyon they told us a lot about the tribe and history of the canyon.
After a long hike we arrived in havasu where our tents were already prepared.
Our guides cooked for us and than we headed to the bed/tent.
We woke up early in the morning and made our way to Mooney Falls.
Our guides showed us hidden spots. Simply amazing. Than we had a lot of time at havasu Falls to rest.
In the evening Izzy and Sam served us dinner again.
There was so much more they provided us with or showed/told us.
The last day we woke up at 4 am and made our way out of the canyon.

One of the best experiences I ever had in life.
I was so proud of myself.
I would definitely book this trip again.

I prepared myself with cardio training before.
I think it’s necessary to enjoy the whole trip and sourrounding

Awsome Hike! - Complete January 21, 2018
Very cold at the top but worth it for the veiws! Easily do-able with crampons! To windy to walk along the ridge but will be back in the summer!
