amazing view in the top.

Did this hike for the second time today and it is always fun and a really nice view. The first time we went, it was definitely a lot more difficult since the other trail down was much much steeper, but it is permanently closed now. I assume that was for safety reasons, but now the trail is a lot easier so I was a teensy bit bummed out about that. Not a huge deal though, still a wonderful and beautiful hike!

was beautiful can wait till spring hopefully when the water is flowing still so amazing!!

Tougher than I expected for a short 4 mile hike. Kudos to Jenna being able to run it downhill, it was way too loose for my liking, I was sliding all over the place. Great view of the city once you get to the top.

I went in the morning of Dec 1, 2018 after some good rain. Still no water, but a great time as always. My Garmin watch clocked at 5.09 miles round trip. A bit of bouldering at the falls to get to the top but nothing too hard. The new path around the part where you used to climb down and up the hill made this trail easier in a good way. As always make your own way and be safe.

Great hike with amazingly beautiful scenery. Definitely NOT moderate - this is hard. But it is worth it.
The entire trail is somewhat rugged - you really need to pay attention. Lots of opportunities to twist an ankle.

It’s an amazing hike is not that hard but take a lot of water with you

A fairly easy trail with amazing views at the top!

Once again a great hike with absolutely beautiful destinations! Sadly there seem to be more people not taking their trash and other items out with them. Some people left behind an air mattress, shoes, dirty clothes, bottles, cans and other trash. if you hike it in, hike it out or don’t bother going. It is a disgrace that some humans ruin things for others. I would agree that if you were going to have your belongings packed into the canyon for you that you should use the helicopter. There are still several horses and mules along the route that had bleeding saddle sores and other injuries. That stuff aside, it’s a place worth checking out if you are lucky enough to get a permit.

This was the most fun I have ever had. climbing down a cave then realizing I have to climb down using chains and then there's a huge ladder thats wet from the mist of the most beautiful waterfall. I faced my fear of heights. then we take the trail and get to take off our shoes and socks and make our way across the water not once but 3 times on this hike (and 3 times on the way back) when it seemed to never end we got to those final ladders to get up top above Beaver Falls and that feeling you get is just so worth the hike. Amazing view. Amazing feels.
Not ok for kids, adults only

Absolutely beautiful trail.

When i came back to my car they had broken the window. I had nothing of value in the car. Maybe leave your doors unlocked? I will not be back.

we did the route today with the dog, was muddy being shoes with good tread as not to slip, long waits for lines of hikers literally lines of 5-10 people at about 9am, if you hike before 8am you should be ok. trail was nice being trekking poles

Great trail! For an experienced trail runner, this is fun, and not super-strenuous. I did it in 2 hours as a power hike, without actually running. However, most of it was runnable downhill. I would definitely do this one again.

Did this in September. It was hotter and harder than expected, but still very fun. It was also completely dry, though we knew that going in. Will go back in the spring when there’s water.

A few warnings: It gets HOT, there’s almost zero shade, and the uphill on the way back is often STEEP/sometimes narrow. I’d say this is definitely NOT a great trail for dogs (several dogs have died on trails recently), and would be hesitant to take kids younger than 12-13 yrs. like everyone is saying— bring lots of water!

This is a hard hike but the views of the city and the surrounding areas is completely worth it. Lots of water, sun protection, snacks and good shoes. It’s steep! Poles wouldn’t be a bad idea if you have them. We didn’t and just took it slow.

This is a great adventurous beautiful walk with multiple river crossings along the way, with the water coming to about your knees so dress/pack appropriately for this. The most challenging back of the walk is climbing down the cliff face to Mooney falls. There are craved out foot holes and chains to help you down but definitely not for those scared of heights. Apart from that it is a pretty easy walk and a lovely oasis. Took us about 5 hours from the lodge and back. There are no toilets after the campground though.

Great walk down the canyon to supai. You must book well in advance to get a reservation with supai lodge (not sure about camping). It was pretty quite though as mid November and temperature was perfect for walking. Easy walk to the village as it is downhill but the way back to the hilltop is a lot harder as the last 2 miles are constant uphill, so is practically tough if your carrying all your gear from the staying over a night in the village. Just before you get in the village you meet havasui creek which is a beautiful turquoise colour. There are toliets at the hilltop car park but nothing along the trail.

Amazingly beautiful! Life changing experience!
Too dangerous for kids!

Did the full hike with my then 4 year old. No helicopter or mules. The only real way to do it in my opinion. My son descended Mooney falls ladder on his own, however, would recommend against it for other parents as it can be slippery and would be a fatal fall. Not much more to say that hasn't already been said. One of the most epic backpacking trips out there!

Awesome place to be and hike it’s beautiful

See my daughter's (Tara Oster's) review. I did want to add that I don't recommend taking small children due to the remoteness of Supai and scrambling over rocks and ladders to some of the falls. We saw one dad heading toward Mooney Falls (which entails slithering through a couple of short tunnels) with a young child in one of those backpack carriers. We cautioned him that the contraption probably wouldn't fit through the tunnels. in any case, the descent to Mooney is just too risky for a child, so please leave kids at home until they're older - I'd say about age 12, as long as they are fairly sturdy and not whiners. Also, about the helicopter - one young man said he waited in line an hour and a half just to put his name in a list to fly out the following day. Supai residents have priority, so who knows if you really are going to be able to get a lift out. Plan on hiking in and out to get the full experience. A memorable trip in a place few people get to experience! We are planning to return again one day!

Best workout!!

This map shows all the wait from the trailhead to Beaver Falls! Beautiful hike if you are lucky to get permits!!!

Beautiful area but really easy to get lost in. The loop runs along the train tracks and then to the left into the woods once you hit Boeing. I’ve walked some of the biking trails that you can enter to the right of the dog park and have gotten so lost. There are a few bridges on this side that may be difficult to cross depending on how much it’s rained recently.

I have been wanting to do this one for a while. There was no water when I went but it was still pretty cool. To get there it is all down hill, that means it is a pretty steep hike on the way back. Every one says it is crowded. I went late afternoon and there were only a handful of people out. Most of the time I was just completely by myself. Cool hike though!

At first glance,I thought this hike would be an arse kicker, but I was pleasantly surprised. The hike down was harder on me because I have knee issues, but being wrapped in KT tape saved me. Pretty much little to no major aches or pains. In fact, really none at all.

The drive to the trailhead takes about an hour if you’re zooming pretty fast. That said, I would NOT attempt that (driving fast) in the dark due to the elk. I hit the road at daybreak and did just fine.

The parking lot has outhouses (yay!!!) and a place to park your car for however long you need. Don’t leave stuff in sight, there is no security and break-ins do occur. Also, don’t park on the mountain side, as rock falls also occur. Park on the cliff side, even if that adds a bit to your overall hike.

The switchbacks are immediate and slowly, it becomes a relatively gradual downslope hike all the way into town. The hike is easily traversable (albeit hellacious gravel that seems to go on forever), easy to stay on trail, and offers many private spots to rest, snack, or do whatever you feel the urge to. Just make sure you carry all your trash out please.

You come to the “Supai” sign and you’re happy. Hold on a bit longer because “psych”..... you’ve got more to go.

The town of Supai is interesting. TAKE NO PHOTOS!!! New rules mean you will be cited and have to pay hefty fines. This goes for the tribal members and donkey trains as well. Once you’ve left a Supai and are in the waterfall/campground area, it’s fair game (with exception to the donkeys and the men tending to the area).

The bathrooms were lit, well kept and clean.

Campsites are unmarked and hard to come by if you arrive late. Most people pack up and head out early, so the best spots are available early. The good news is that if you get a sucky site, a new one will open up the next day. The even better news, there really aren’t but a few sucky sites.

In October the campground is pretty much in full shade all day. Havasu Falls gets shade around 2:00. If you’re relying on solar for charging, you’ll need to schlep back up to the top of the falls to have some sun for about another hour. It gets dark around 5:30 and if it’s windy, it gets cold.

I have a 15* Nemo bag that served me well. Jetboil is the way to go and I loved my MaryJanesFarm dehydrated food. Make sure you grab a HomeDepot bucket and a lid if you see one available by the start of the campground to store your food, they’re a Godsend.

I loved my time here. It was great to relax and unplug. I ate a lot less than I thought I would, and drank a lot more (hot tea/water/hot cocoa/ coffee).

No alcohol or drugs allowed. Please respect that.
Carry out all your trash and adhere to the principles of “leave no trace”..

No day hikes permitted.

The hike out? I was stunned at how easily I was able to just barrel through the last mile. Make no mistake, it was tough, but I lived to tell the tale! Lol

Have fun!!!

Difficult, but absolutely worth it. Don’t miss the chance to see these waterfalls. The hike from Mooney falls to Beaver Falls is the most beautiful day hike you will find. It is about 4 miles past Mooney.
