Super easy...way too short but neat to see

One of the best places in the US to visit

Great for a break from the car ride!

Once in a lifetime, must see and do hike!!!! There’s nothing more to say about this place.

I hiked this trial while taking a break from a road trip with my dog and it was absolutely perfect! Such an easy hike which is great because I just wanted to take a quick hike and get back on the road. It was perfect for my dog and the views were incredible. I’m also a photographer and I always try to find easy trails during my road trips with great views to photograph, and this one did not disappoint! I didn’t go all the way because I heard there was a hole in the wall climb that my dog couldn’t take, but we were on the trail in total for an hour and 10 mins.

Make sure you bring cash for parking ($5) and appropriate shoes because it’s definitely a dirty hike!

One of the most beautiful places on earth.

cool stop on our way out

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.

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.

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

Life changing experience!

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

Fantastic dog friendly trail.

BUT - why do people let their dogs off leash and leave filled poop bags on the trail?

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!!!

Did the loop trail instead. Definitely recommend it over this super short one. Picturesque and 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.

After passing Mooney, Beaver falls isn’t quite as exciting. But what a beautiful trail that follows along the majestic water with about 3 water crossings. Near the end you’ll arrive at the 1 palm tree to start climbing up, there’s ladders and some rock stairs to help the climb but as always be cautious as the face of the ridge is brittle. The view from the top looking down on to Beaver Falls is amazing! You’ll see a wooden sign and thankfully know you’ve made it. From the sign start your decent to the falls, make sure to pack a suit and a snack, this hike takes about 5 hours, you wouldn’t think that with a short 4.5 mile hike.

Incredible views! What a one of a kind hike as well. It’s not for the faint of heart. There are ladders and chains and a steep decline to the bottom of the falls but well worth it. Be careful descending as it can be slippery with the mist from the waterfall.
HIGHLY RECOMMEND wearing hiking shoes-not tennis shoes- as you’ll need the gripping for the hike.

Such a great adventure! Don't be fooled, this mostly flat hike is long and hard. The ground is either dried riberbed, very rocky, or soft sandy dirt. Not easy on the feet or ankles. Bring plenty of water, and def leave early when you hike out. The last 2 miles can be brutal in direct sun.

So so worth it!! I will definitely be going back. The falls are incredible, the camp site is magical... The water really is that blue. I'm so grateful to have had that opportunity.

What an amazing experience this was. Little over 11 miles to get there carrying a bag over 30 pounds made it a bit challenging but we made it. This place is paradise, the views are just amazing. So much water and green landscapes makes you feel you’re not in AZ. So glad I got to go and cross this of my bucket list... 32.7 miles total round trip!!

This is one of my favorite hikes, especially in October! The colors are stunning! I've hiked it several times, it never gets old.

Great little walk with rewarding views!

I enjoyed the entire hike in and out. the canyon and falls are beautiful and nice to see in person.

Beautiful area with great scenery. We got to the rope on the wall and didn't continue on. I didn't have any issue getting up the wall, but I think it would be hard for kids to do... if they were successful getting up it, it is quite different coming back down. It was too bad there was a super annoying group at the end being extremely noisy, because it would have been great to be able to spend some time there just taking everything in.

Easy hike however, very short 1.5 out and back of you stop at the rope on the wall.

Went from Mooney falls to Bever. A little tricky at some points and you need to keep an eye on where the trail ends into the water and continues on the other side. A great day hike.

Best hike ever! Totally breathtaking and worth it. But good gear and it will be all smiles.

Does anyone want to buy my reservation? Oct 21-23 weather isn’t looking good and I’m not willing to take any chances. Did this hike last year and was reallly looking forward to it. 4802905744
