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.
