This was my first true backpacking hike and I loved every minute of it!!!! I can’t wait to go back with my family

Exceeded expectations regarding beauty. More traffic than I was hoping for but made for a community vibe around camp. Went in early November,.... would NOT do in summer, the heat would be a true killer. City folk who don't understand county living may say mules are "sad".... from what I saw, great shape, wonderful life, no issues. Drop one or two meals as you will eat in Supai. No issues with squirrels/raccoons. Toilets fine. Bring a good camera.

don't pass it up. it's awesome

I did this trail 11/7-11/9. I was very worried that going in November wasn't going to be a good idea, but I was wrong. The trail was beautiful. The weather was fine. And all of the falls were massive. The hike in is long. It's about 8 miles to the small village of Supai where you check in. We stopped and had lunch in the café as well. Then it's another 2 miles to the campsite. You choose your spot to camp at random. Camp is 1 mile long with lots of spots to choose. Most of the spots have their own picnic table, as well as line to hang clothes and food, etc. that people have left behind. Parking at the trailhead is easy. There's a lot and then plenty of parking along the road. There is a bathroom there. The hike in is very easy. It's entirely downhill. If you enjoy long hikes you'll love it. If not, you'll want it to end. You'll see Navajo Falls first, after leaving the village of Supai. It's about a mile from the village on the way to the campsite. Navajo is great for swimming. Make sure to take the path to the bottom of the falls, as there's a great photo op as well as swimming hole. The next falls is the famous Havasu Falls. This is right before the campsite. These falls are amazing and a wonderful spot to hangout. Take a whole day to hike Mooney falls, Beaver falls, and the confluence (if you decide to do the confluence). The climb down to Mooney is a hard one. It's very slick, very tight, straight down, and you have to use the metal chains, rotten ladders, and metal rods. If you're afraid of heights or not as adventurous this one is not for you. I highly recommend if you can, bc Mooney falls and beaver falls are the best part of this trail. Once you're down Mooney falls, stop and take a photo and swim before heading to Beaver falls. Beaver falls is about a 2 mile hike from Mooney falls. It's an amazing hike. There are lots of creek crossings. You'll want to have water shoes. The hike is super flat and easy. It's beautiful. There are lots of cut offs but they all lead to the same place, so don't fret. Once you arrive at Beaver falls, you'll have to do a few more ladders before getting down to the pools of water. This is an incredible place to hangout for the day. If you'd like, continue onto the confluence which I didn't do but I believe is a few more miles down the canyon. If you're a strong hiker, the hike out is easy. It's not hard, so don't let the reviews stress you out. Up to the switchbacks at the end, it's a walk in the park. The switchbacks up to the trailhead are tough, especially with a pack. Go slow, take your time. The only thing I didn't like about the trail were the mules. It's hard to watch as they struggle to go up the switchbacks. You can tell they're miserable. It's awful. I tried not to look. If you cannot carry your pack both in and OUT of the canyon, you should not do this hike.

It was a beautiful hike! There were many few bighorn sheep, specially at the end of the hike (closer to the colorado river). There were some sketchy parts in the trail were you had to pass through very narrow trails high in the walls of the canyon but the rest of the trail is very straight forward since you just have to follow the river downstream. Lots of river crossing so bring water shoes. You should end the trail on the left side of the canyon if you want to go all the way down to the colorado river. Started at 7am amd finished at 12:30pm.

The entirety of the hike and experience was worth it. The 10 mile hike to the village is a mix of sand and gravel through dense canyon walls, and into the Village of Supai and the campground. The grounds are clean with restrooms, with numerous unique camp spots along the creeks. The waterfalls speak for themselves too. To note, some older blogs mentioned taking inflatable tubes to the river but those are now banned. Additionally, there is no photography in the Village of Supai as well. Definitely be respectful, pack out what you pack in, and enjoy the trip!

Amazing. Amazing waterfalls, amazing cottonwood trees, totally awesome. The climb up and down to the base of Moody was very hard for me, but everyone cooperated about leaving groups in opposite directions pass. A wonderful young man I met on the trail talked me down, scouting out the foot holds. What a total pleasure

My daughter and I did this trail 5 years ago... her 50th, my 75 th. We r both experienced hikers and think this is the most beautiful place in the world. We are back with 2 of her children. Last time we came after a snow/ rainstorm. This time there has been weeks of sunshine. Today it felt like we were walking on beach sand the whole way. I found it very very hard walking. But worth it

Very beautiful hike! You are NOT allowed to take any pictures of the Havasu Indian Tribe, the horses nor the Havasu village. The Indian folks will not talk to you unless they have to. They are shy. Some of them will greet you if you greet them. My advise, be respectful to them at any time. We would not like it either to have tourists in our town 24/7. If you see one of their food stands - I highly recommend their food!! Yum yum :)

Insane hike out with plenty switch backs in the end to really challenge your mental fortitude. Options are to fly out in helicopter from town or you can rent a horse to ride you out of town for $200. Due to popularity prices are doubling to keep the numbers down and make this an exclusive trip for hikers that want to be challenged. I would do the hike over for triple the price though. You will see some of the most beautiful views you have ever seen. Start the hike out around 5-6am so you beat the peak our heat out.

Having done this once in November and once in July, I would only recommend going in the summer or when the weather isn't too cold to enjoy the water. The hike itself sucks. The first mile in (last mile on the way out) is extremely steep and cool, but after that it's a boring hike that goes on forever. Walking through the village is interesting. The 3 mile hike from the village to the campground is tough because of move elevation change and soft sand making it more difficult physically, like how it is walking on a beach, however there are some amazing views and waterfalls on this part of the hike. The campground itself is awesome, a GREAT place to stay. There is a spring for easy and good water. There is plenty of shade, and trees to hang a hammock, and water running through the whole campground. The bathrooms are good. It's a very nice place, in the summer anyway. It's in a canyon with very tall walls on either side, which provide shade for part of the day, perfect in summer, bad in winter. When I was there in November it was decent during the day. You didn't want to go in the water, but you did because it was possible too, but only briefly because it was still too cold to enjoy or spend any amount of time in. Then once the sun went behind the canyon walls early in the day, it was time to eat and go to your sleeping bags, as the cold would set in very fast and camp fires are prohibited year round. The only benefit to winter is the hike is much easier. In the summer months you'll have to be careful to hydrate properly and hike at night/early morning or late evening/night to stay safe, and it will still be hot and difficult. In winter, you can hike in broad daylight and be fine.

Great hike. From top of the parking area to the center of the campground was exactly 11 miles one way. The town you check into before entering the falls as well as catch the helicopter out is 2 miles from the center of the campground. Three bathroom sites are at the campground as well as fern spring which you can fill up water without having to filter. The trip starts with switchbacks into the canyon and the trail has rock that are all over so have your hiking boots laced up tight in order to not roll an ankle. The hike in calls for 4-6 hours but it was done in about 4-41/2 hours.

Includes hike to far end of campground near Mooney falls from Hualapai hilltop. This is an epic - and painful - memorable hike of a lifetime.

This is an awesome trail. The start is the difficult descend down the side of a cliff by Mooney Falls. The bottom half of which is only footholds and chains. Be careful and patient and you’re fine. Then the trek from there to Beaver Falls is fun. Crossing creeks, using a few ladders, and hoping to catch some bighorn sheep! Well worth it for the adventure and the amazing waterfalls.

Amazing hike and experience. Had never done anything like it. Not extremely difficult, just takes a while. Switchbacks and beginning are a little tough coming back up. Best to start really early in the morning to avoid the heat and sunshine. Backpacking in with 30 lb pack was tiring, but a great sense of accomplishment and well worth it for the awesome waterfalls and experiences there. Everyone must do it!
