Less crowded than echo canyon

Super fun with a bit of scrambling towards the top. The views are to die for.

I second these two reviews: "Lots of boulder hopping on the (Labarge Canyon) creek bed and you really need to know how to find your way because the trail isn't always well marked - so keep your wits with you.," and " Some of the loop portion really shouldn’t be called a trail - it’s nearly impossible to figure out where to go without gps." Next time I would take the balloon segment starting on the boulder canyon side because you can better plot your path through Labarge Canyon as you descend from Battleship Mountain. You've got a clear view of the entire canyon then and can see the flatter riverbed on the west side. 11.1 miles from the Canyon Lake parking lot. For me this was difficult.

What a great weekend camping trip and hike with Boy Scout Troop 131 from Scottsdale. We got a late start, but were still able to summit and get back down to the saddle in 3 hours.....just in time to see the sunset. We completed the hike under headlamps and a half moon, while getting glimpses of the crimson sky and city lights coming to life. It was a spectacular hike and one of my all time favorites. We were fortunate to have the entire mountain to ourselves on a calm and cool day. Extra special experience for me to summit for the first time since 1999, while with my 13 yr old son. We will be back! Best advice: wear gloves when starting up the crevice on the scree, and bring plenty of water and snacks. It's a solid 4 hours despite this trail's 5.4 mile distance.

Nice hike and fun after the first mile. Very rocky after the first mile.

Great hike. Was closer to 6 miles but great views of the valley.

this trail is difficult if you have not been to many tough ones before there are some places where you have to use both hands and full body strength to climb if you want to get to the top. but view from the top will not disappoint.

Awesome, wear good shoes, bring water!!

Fun trail. Lots of pretty things to see if you’re looking.

Hiked this trail today. Waterfall was nothing but a trickle. I will have to come back after a rain. Total distance to the falls from the parking area was 5.9 miles.

Beginner hiker and I made it half way in to the start of the incline. The start was easy after you get going. The desert was very peaceful and overall a pleasant hike in and out. Has some rocky points and washes to cross. Not much wildlife. Lots of cholla along the trail. A few black ant hills. Saw maybe 10 total hikers on the trail.

Nice 5.3 mile easy hike....tricky as no “Meridian Trail” markers so use AllTrails GPS to stay on.

I've done this trail at least 52 times for sure! This is a great trail, love everything about this trail. Could have better parking but I always went on Monday's so it was fine.

Great workout! This trail is very rocky so proper footwear is definitely needed. You will need to climb using your hands in a few sections. Gorgeous views at the top!

scenic but very rocky at certain areas, had to pay attention where to step and not twist an ankle. Was hoping to see more wildlife as spoken of in other reviews, maybe it was to cold.
Elevation wasn't to bad

I went hiking with my boyfriend and our dog today. He is about 28 pounds and this trail was not difficult at all for him, especially being his first time hiking. There are some steep short ledges that can be scary when a biker comers around the corner. Make sure you keep an eye on your pooch as there are many cacti along the trail. Great day!

Great hike!! Loved all the river crossings. Saw frogs, and enjoyed the views from the top. Beautiful photo opps along the way!

good trail. not the best in the area.

Lots of people. Beautiful view!!

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!!!

Beautiful Scenery half way in....awesome Incline workout too! Loved it ....bathrooms on site!

My favorite Maricopa County hike. Cool air, trees, adrenaline, and jaw-dropping vistas. If you have a fear of heights, however, or if you don’t trust your arm strength/balance, do not attempt to reach the top. As others have mentioned, the chute (the area in between the two northernmost peaks) can be quite intimidating, especially for inexperienced climbers. That being said, I’d guess it’s doable for about 90% of people who are reading this.

As a further warning, keep an eye out for the turnoff on your way down the chute. Due to the steep descent, it’s easy to keep your eyes on the ground and miss the trail. That happened to us, but as a result, we were rewarded with a truly awe-inspiring sunset. Best views in Maricopa County.

There is a lost dog, she is tan colored, about 50 pounds, long haired, possibly a shepherd or husky mix. She was spotted here about an hour ago. If you see her, please call her owner- Jon @ 480-593-5029. She is posted as missing in the Next Door App. Her name is Sierra, she is skiddish and has been missing since Friday. Thank you.

Great views of the city. My Fitbit clocked it at about 7 miles. A real fun scale up, not rocky, and not strenuous.

Very poor markings on trail, got a little lost but all in all beautiful hike, good running/biking trails.

My Girl and I wanted to do “Fatman’s Pass” off the Mormon Loop, but we couldn’t find it. We ended up taking a random trail down the side of the mountain before the trail turns south and loops back. It took us to a really nice neighborhood. We walked the wilderness behind the homes and saw a coyote! It was beautiful. However, I’m pretty sure we were trespassing, and we never found Fatman’s Pass.

Great and easy trail.

Make sure u are at the falls before 1400 if u want to have enough fun for a swim.

Very deceiving as there’s no actual trail. Best way to start is to climb up to the cave on the right and then down in. Was an adventurous hike as it’s definitely moderate to hard at times. Very enjoyable.

Easy start to a more advanced hike

Crossed paths with two coyotes.
