nice and tough. good hike to do in the morning even later morning, sun is not hitting your face and trail gains good elevation making your heart rate just right. nice exercise.

Went hiking with wife, kids, and cousin on our first long distance hike of the season to practice building up distance endurance. Only thing that was really disappointing with this trail is how the desert plants are not kept trimmed back from the trail and it can be tricky (and painful) to maneuver through some areas of the trail. Lots of great wildlife to be found along the way and the view of the lake is worth the trip out here. No horses or rattlesnakes today, but my daughter found a tarantula of decent size which was a pleasant surprise for us.

Busy but worth it! Stay hydrated ok

Love the horses in the water staying cool

They view were spectacular and the hike was scenic. I completed this hike solo and found great difficulty in navigating it as the trail was horribly marked. I must have spent and extra hour or two trying to find the trail both on the way up and he way down. What can I say, I was determined. I will not be hiking this solo ever again. A group is recommended. I left my fair share of cairns to help those future venturers, if you could contribute as well, please do.

Not my ideal type of hike, I went counter clockwise. The views were magnificent, trail was perfect. I prefer a hike up like the Peralta. At 2.5 miles I just turned around. Other than that it was absolutely beautiful, barely anyone on the trail only saw 5 people in a span of 3 hours.

Great Hike Today!!! Beautiful with a nice trail variety for a hard hike. Be sure to take the immediate Left as you enter (before check in station) or you’ll be driving all over. Bathroom at Trail. Sadly some garbage along the way....

Nice to see! We made this a pit stop on our drive from Flagstaff to Zion. We had a 10:30 am antelope canyon tour so stopped by here before. It was cool to see but not the best lighting yet at 8:30 in the morning. It’s a quick pit stop. Spent about 35 min here. Came back after our tour finished at noon because we weren’t in a hurry to get to Zion. Lighting was much better. Would recommend to see if you’re in the area. Not something I would go out of my way for though.

Trail is very easy and pretty well marked. Missing a few markers at the half way point which leads to some confusion. Didn’t see horses but was a great walk either way.

This trail has it all. Views, elevation, good coverage, rocks, snow & ice. Bring poles and micro spikes. It’s gets very icy and technical after the trail splits at the saddle (11,4000) prior to final ascent to Humphrey’s peak. Not safe without proper gear. Beautiful 360 degree views from the top. Gorgeous sunsets from AZ Snowbowl parking lot of you time it right.

Beautiful sunset spot!! Pretty steep areas so make sure you wear hiking boots.

Hiked on 11/3 still lots of snow and ice but it’s pretty well packed, micro spikes are a must. I’m in pretty good shape and hike constantly, the elevation will kick your butt here, be prepared to go slower than you ever thought you’d need to, especially in the last mile. Last mile is very steep, the wind is serious and brings the chill well below freezing any time of day. Hike is worth every step, views from the top are to die for, Grand Canyon and Sedona can both be seen and it’s a 360 degree view of the world around you.

I was only here for ~30 minutes since i’m only spending the night in Prescott and then heading up north the next day. it’s very beautiful, if i lived nearby, i’d come back a lot. saw a few people kayaking- that’s cool lol. and we paid $3 (saturday) the people behind us didn’t pay at all...

Amazing views but as of 11/2/18 there was too much snow to get to the peak without crampons or microspikes. We were were able to get to the 2nd false peak with just trekking poles and our regular hiking boots but as the temp dropped the snow began to turn too icy for us to continue. If you are going to try to make it to the top without proper equipment (which i do NOT recommend) then make sure you go within the next few days on a WARM day and get to the saddle by noon so that way the snow on the exposed portions of the trail on your way to the peak will be slushy enough for you to really dig in and make it to the top and back before the temp drops at 3/4pm and freezes over making it too dangerous to traverse.

Relatively easy hike, but beautiful scenery. We arrived at around 8:30 in the morning an there were quite a few people already on the trail. Trail was in most parts easy to follow, but not marked that great, worth the trip, would definitely do it again if we are ever in this neck of the woods again.

I've hiked here twice, once with others and another time with my small dog. Not too difficult if you hike often, though 1 person in my group started having difficulty towards the top and coming down.

Crowded but worth it.

Bring more water than you anticipate needing. This is a strenuous hike that has long portions of “stair-master” type climbs.. views are incredible once you reach the top!

I hiked here back in March and it's one of my favorite trails of the year. I recommend not going solo especially if you aren't experienced. There's a few drops, but it's very fun to navigate as you go along. The river at the end is the best reward.

Go for sunrise! View is amazing, tourists are not.

Fun stop at sunrise. Trail is sandy and descends to the viewpoint and is great to fly down. Canyon rim will be filled with photographers, but plenty of room to wander. Fairly flat areas to just run free and explore on the red rock await at the end of trail.

Easy hike with very little elevation gain. Very pretty views of Saguaro Lake and all the coves. We saw a ton of birds and ducks and were a bit startled on the way back when we heard gunshots as apparently it was the start of fowl hunting season (only drawback). We saw a variety of activities on the water from fishing, to boating to paddle boarding but most of the noise and hustle and bustle was limited to the recreation area where you park to access trailhead. I would do this hike again for sure. **Note: Get your $8 parking day pass before-hand so you don’t have to double-back like we did!

10/26/18 I completed this hike left trail head about 7:30 am and hit the summit around 12:00 pm what a hike their was a lot of snow thankfully I was properly equipped the most rewarding hike I’ve done to date if you can only get to the saddle you would still love the view

I had to dig deep in the mind to finish this one I’m not sure if I want to ever go back this close to November but I will try it in summer

Fantastic hike!! Gorgeous views everywhere!!

This says 14.5 miles, which is not accurate. From Hilltop, it is 8 miles to Supai village and another 2 miles to the campground.

It should also be noted in this description that day hiking is not allowed.

Definitely plan your trip in the more moderate temperature months — not in the summer heat! We went toward the end of October. The hike down to Supai starts with about a mile descent before the trail evens out and you enjoy a rather leisurely walk through the canyon to the village. (Trekking poles save your knees on the way down.) We started hiking at approximately 7:30 in the morning, stopped in the village for about an hour, and arrived at the campsite around 2 in the afternoon. The campsite was fairly crowded and next time I will plan on getting to camp mid morning as many people will be leaving around that time to hike out.

We spent our first full day exploring the main Havasu Falls area and relaxing. Be sure to hit up the fry bread stands that are set up just above Havasu Falls!

We went down to Mooney Falls and Beaver Falls the following day. That trail is approximately 7 miles round trip. You cannot get to Beaver Falls without going to Mooney Falls. If you’re afraid of heights, Mooney may be out of the question for you. If you go early in the day, there will be a long line of people traveling down to the falls. You’ll go through two short tunnels in the rock before stepping out onto some steep, cut-in stairs with chains to grip onto. Unfortunately this is very stop-and-go as you’re waiting for everyone ahead of you to navigate their way down. The rock and chains toward the bottom are always wet due to splash from the falls. There are two wooden ladders at the bottom as well that are pretty slick, so watch your step. The hike to Beaver Falls starts out as a spider web of trails, but you’ll eventually wind your way through and end up on the main trail. There are several stream crossings which aren’t deep and offer a good chance to cool down! There are some more ladders to navigate when you’re about half a mile from Beaver Falls, but they’re not too difficult.

We packed up and left camp around 4:30 a.m. on our last day to beat the heat. The hike out is slower going as it’s mostly uphill — especially from the campground to just beyond the village. Then you’re mostly back to leisurely walking, albeit slightly uphill, until the last mile or so. That last mile can be a struggle, so we busted out our trekking poles, and celebrated our decision to leave camp so early. We arrived at Hilltop at approximately 10:30 a.m.

We spent 3 nights at the campground and unless you’re a hiking beast, I would recommend that to most people. Two nights really isn’t enough time to see everything and feel like you got some rest. We did NOT use mules, although that is an option. From the sounds of it, the social media outrage over the treatment of the mules has resulted in them now appearing well-fed, however I can say nothing definitive of how they are actually being treated. I would recommend giving that some serious thought before you decide to use a mule packer and hopefully you will decide against it. I will point out, my 59-year-old mother packed in her own 35 lb pack — down and back — so the young, fit people who used mules have zero excuses. Packing all your own gear in and out really makes the backpacking experience more worthwhile. (If you didn’t actually pack all your own gear, did you really go backpacking?)

Good hike.

Better than my last visit. Didn’t have a bunch of trash thrown and left behind by people who don’t care.
Water level was very low. Kayakers were having to get out and walk their kayaks over rocks and sand bars.

The trail is not 0.8 miles total. The cave itself is a mile long, and you have to walk to the cave entrance from the parking lot, so my phone said 2.15 miles total after we did it. Come ready for climbing and lots of rocks. Bring multiple flashlights and and extra jacket because it’s cold in the cave. But it was pretty cool and different than most trails!

Amazing Sunrise Hike Today with gorgeous views of the lake and landscape! No wild horses spotted today, I would rank as an easy hike, but at times the trail was hard to follow towards the end....use your Navigation! Washrooms on trail site...Get Your $8.00 Park Pass at Gas Station on the way or risk fine.
