Someone was asking whether this trail is open. Yes, it is. I was there today 11/18/18 and it was open.

One breathtaking view after another. Beautiful!!!

does anyone knows if this trail is open?

Karla Gomez has no idea what a review encompasses. It's unfortunate that it's closed due to the recent fires but by no means does it diminish the beauty of it. It's a neat little trail with ample shade and plenty to look at.

Not very much shade, but an amazing view at the top with the railway ruins! Bring yo’ sunscreen.

Great hike with good LA history at the top. It’s all up hill with very little shade so plan accordingly with water and a hat. Also it’s street parking and it can get busy. Dog friendly

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!!!

Trail closed due to fires right now

I did this hike in August because Angels Landing was closed. It’s a steady climb of switchbacks with spectacular views. Midway is a slot canyon with shade and a nice stop for photos before continuing to the summit. The temperature was reaching the 90s. Take 2-3 liters of water and snacks. I arrived at the summit at lunch and it was very crowded. I found a relaxing spot to enjoy the views over Angels Landing and watch the tourists taking pics and face timing friends. Round trip was aprox 4 hours. Fantastic hike!

Great hike!! Did this hike a couple days ago and the weather was perfect! Started right before 8 am and finished right under 4 hours. Spent about 20 min at the top. Was only 2 other people up there. Amazing views! Glad we did the hike when we did before it warmed up. The second set of switchbacks was tougher than the first. As soon as we finished this hike we went and did Angels Landing. I thought this hike was better and is def my favorite in the park!

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.

Awesome hiking take good hiking shoes and water.

Great hike, well maintained. Bring plenty of water as this is strenuous. I am scared of heights, but the trail is sturdy so I did not have any difficulties with the drop offs at points. Bring a pair of hiking poles!!!!

Amazing hike. Bring lots of water. Views going up and at the summit are spectacular. Strenuous with the switchbacks but absolutely worth it!!!!

Another incredible hike in Zion. The hike has significant elevation gain virtually all the way to the viewpoint. There’s no shortage of awe inspiring views the entire trip. My only tip, is from the view point, follow the cliff line clock wise for a bit. The views are just as impressive looking down the canyon at the Temple of Sinawava but there’s no one there.

The views on the way up and especially at the top are simply outstanding. Overall this is a much easier hike than C2C, but the long steep ascent is total murder on the legs. Quads in particular get hit quite hard. Hiking poles would probably help give the legs a break. Going back down is a little tricky in spots, due to the loose sand and rocks, but nothing careful foot placement (and grabbing on to surrounding brush) can't solve. On a Sunday I saw lots of people of varying fitness levels at the summit, so this is a doable hike as long as you do it at a pace that's right for you. In terms of water, for me 5 liters was perfect.

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.

This is a really awesome hike! It is very strenuous heading up, but the views are amazing throughout. There are several switchbacks. We took our time taking breaks along the way. We each packed 3 liters in our camelbacks, which I recommend bringing. We headed out on the hike about 9:30 am and it was 37 degrees. I was wearing several layers, which I had to remove along the ascent and had to put them back on at the top. We arrived at the top at noon and there was about 20 people up there. We brought lunch and spent about 45 minutes at the top enjoying the view and the three chipmunks running around up there. After this hike, we feel we are definitely ready for Angels Landing now.

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.

Definitely one of my favorites so far though not sure how often I would come since the drive in (coming from south east) is somewhat lengthy and windy. The trail is mostly easy to follow with the exception near Tri Peaks. You can never have enough sunscreen or water for this hike! Bring a hat.

Off of the Mishe Mokwa trail there is Balanced Rock trail (~ 0.8 miles in and out per map) - this is an unofficial, unkept trail and by no means would I recommend it to someone without a map because it has several false trails. However, the balanced rock is stunning up close and provides great shade for a break! Total hike, 7.6 miles, took me close to ~ 5 hours. Moderate difficulty best describes it. The views make it worth it.

Distance:
5 miles to Echo Mountain (2.5 up and 2.5 down)
10 miles to Inspiration Point (5 miles and 5 miles down)

Hike through some unique LA history as you churn those legs upward to the Echo Mountain resort ruins. The trail has constant elevation and is a really solid workout. Once you get to the ruins (2.5 miles), take a break, explore the remains, and eat your lunch or snacks here. It is quite enjoyable yelling into the echo phone and hearing your voice reverberate through the mountains - it really carries through clearly!

Now if you want to make this hike special, I HIGHLY recommend going from the ruins and trekking all the way up to Inspiration Point via the Sam Merrill trail or the Castle Canyon (both these entrances are marked with plaques that look identical). This is where the trail gets more isolated, rugged, narrow, and is much steeper! The Sam Merrill trail once you get towards the top, brings you through the backside of mountain where you venture into the shaded wilderness of the woods - really loved this change in the landscape. The Castle Canyon trail ascends up much faster and steeper than its counterpart and is a major workout where you will be huffing and puffing until you get to the top. Be aware of potential mountain bikers trekking down these trails, I was pretty shocked to have 3 of them go by us as the trails were narrow, quite impressive honestly. Once at Inspiration point, soak in the views and lay down before heading back to the trailhead. They have these cool, hollow telescope tubes that are labeled by LA's neighborhoods (silverlake, venice, etc). These aren't actual telescopes but if you had one this would be the perfect time to use it. There are also a good amount of hawks or ravens up here so make sure to gaze and be amazed as they soar around you, I even saw one doing some tricks in the air!

A beautiful mountain hike that is not too far from the city!

Parking: There is free parking at the base of the trailhead.

Very nice hiking! Beautiful view

Loved this trail!

very nice view.

Did this hike later in the day. Barely made it back in time for the last bus, but it was worth it (took me about 3 hours round trip). Very few people on the trail! Only 4 other folks at the peak. The views were utterly spectacular. Definitely in my top 5 hikes!

Tough hike, but if you pace yourself and come prepared, it makes it better. The views are amazing all along the trail. Definitely recommend doing this one.

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 hike gives you everything that Zion has to offer. It’s a pretty challenging hike physically but the views are stunning. We did Angel’s Landing the day before and found it really cool that you were literally looking down at it on this hike.
