This trail follows the clearly marked trail starting at the Hualapai Hilltop trailhead into the Havasupai Indian reservation to the Supai Indian Village, to 4 Major Waterfalls (Little Navajo, Havasu, Mooney, and Beaver Falls) and back to the Trailhead.

The first mile coming from Mooney falls was my favorite. Gorgeous water features. It’s a little hard on the feet going in and out of water and a sandy trail - moleskin saved the day.

Sometimes a little tricky to find your way, but SO beautiful!

Hike from the campground to Beaver Falls is my favorite trail ever. Adventurous trail alongside stunning cascading river. Felt like paradise!

Amazing hike! Some climbing involved, but there are lots of holds to hang onto. Most difficult part is the descent down the Falls by the campsite. Lots of lush brush to walk through at the start as well. You might get scratched up a bit. Wear good hiking sandals. Bring a snack, water and a swimsuit

Hiked in and out with 34+lbs backpack ,
Timeline for 3 days and 2 night. 04/29/2018-05/01/2018

Night before:
Drove to trailhead around midnight and slept in my car Parking lot was full so had to park around .60 mile away.

Day 1
Started at 6:50am, 9:50 am at supai village office, after small 5-10 min breaks at village and Navajo falls, I reached campgrounds around 10:45 am. Luckily got spot close to Mooney falls. Which added .8 mile.
(Things I did on first day, village, little Navajo falls, Havasu falls, Mooney falls, Fry bread **only cash**)

Day 2
I did confluence on day two, started at 7:00 am by 8:00 am at Beaver falls and 10:00 am at confluence. Don’t hike alone to confluence, luckily met Someone wonderful near beaver falls and we hiked together.
Important things: bring a lot of water or water filter. I had 4 liters and on my way back I had few drops left near Mooney. You don’t use as much water going but coming back you will need a lot. I wish I had water filter.
Start early to avoid heat and no hiking allowed after 11:00 am from beavers falls to confluence, I am 5’7 and deepest crossing was only waist high. After Mooney trail gets little confusing but easy to navigate. Had to cross river twice to get to beavers falls and ladder once’s. I did not go down to beavers falls. You will see small hut, stay on the trail above and you will see a small board on the ground saying no hiking after 11:00 am. If you don’t see that sign stop and ask. Had to cross river around 5-6 times after that. Hike to confluence is very pretty. After passing Small tunnel, you only cross river once to your left. If you stay on right side it’s hard to go down to confluence but if you stay left and get to small cliff, it’s easy to get down to river. Left confluence at 11:35 am and was back to Mooney around 3:30pm took few breaks coming back up. ****Follow the Cairns/stack of stones***

Campground to confluence 2:50 hours only water break, Confluence to campgrounds 4 hours.

Things I did on Second (confluence, swimming

This place is just beautiful! Awesome experience, totally recommend for everyone. It's not that hard, 3 days make it quite a resonable hike amount per day.

Amazing! These were definitely my favorite falls. They weren’t as busy and there are a lot of places you can jump off of into the water. You will be in and out of the water once you get past the permit office. Bring lots of water and snacks!

My absolute favorite hike I’ve ever done. These falls are stunning. You absolutely must have a permit and they sell out (for the entire year) within hours. This place is magical.

We got lost on the way back! It was an awesome trail! Bring snacks and enough water. You will be crossing streams/river few times just fyi.

This is as good as it gets! Best falls in Havasupai and also the least busy as it is farther away from camp. If you have the energy, continue down this trail to the Colorado River!

Ok, so the profile picture you see here is not Beaver Falls itself. I believe that is Mooney Falls, and yes, you would see that on the way, but it
Seems like if you’re calling the hike “Beaver Falls” you should show a picture of Beaver Falls. Also, probably deceiving to call it a 24.4 mile hike. You’re probably not going to do it all in one day. You’re likely staying at the Campground 10 miles in and then maybe the next day you hike past Mooney Falls and then through the river to Beaver Falls. It’s probably 2-3 miles past Mooney. It is an amazing hike. You can’t even believe you’re still in Arizona as you think of Arizona as “Brown” and dry and this is green and lush. It’s probably 2-4 miles past Mooney. You have to cross the river 3 times and walk in it a 4th, so I’d wear water shoes or better yet, hiking sandals. We actually changed out of boots and hid our boots after the descent down Mooney Falls, which is treacherous. Seems like you’d want boots for that portion of the hike. But this hike is amazing and you should do it. Even of the relatively few people who ever get to see Havasu Falls, even fewer get to Beaver, so do it, and get that amazing sense of accomplishment.
