I loved this backpacking experience! The hike down started at 5am, we passed many hikers heading back out to the trailhead. The hike down was rather easy, once we reached the village we checked in and received our wristbands for camping. They have a small grocery store that has many snacks, soda, and fresh fruits. We set up our camp across from the creek the first two nights, and the third night we took someone's spot who left. Havasu Falls gets a little crowded in the afternoon, and although all the water temps are the 'same' Mooney and Beaver seemed to be warmer for us! Some things I was not aware of before coming to this trip was: 1. There's a 'sketchy' check in point on the highway to Supai trailhead. It had a hand written STOP sign, two people sitting by a fire on the side of the road, and they were checking permits. They were very kind! 2. Many people have left their propane canisters at the rangers station. There was an abundance of cans left, you can help your self to them! 3. Don't get hurt, it'll cost you $**,*** just to get out of the canyon!! We seen this happen several times on our trip. Be smart.

Beautiful trail and the waterfalls along the way are gorgeous! It’s a must do hike!! That being said the climb down near Mooney Falls was horrific. I did it. I survived. But I would never do it again if I didn’t have to: if you are afraid of heights beware! It’s a gorgeous hike but just prepare yourself mentally

overall nice trail. you must have a permit to hike here. theres a sheriff that walks the trail with a horse to check the permits. parking can be a problem at the trailhead. there are switchbacks at the start of the trail and the rest is generally flat. 8 miles 1 way to Havasu and another 2 miles to the campground.

This was such an amazing trip! The hike in is moderate, as mostly down hill and needs to be timed right with the sun, especially if you’re packing your gear as we did. The hike out, we took an average of six minutes more per mile. Which is insane, but remember it’s all uphill at the beginning and end: The campgrounds to Supai Village and again the last two miles. Some tips: if you can, be at the trailhead at sunrise. This is a long grueling trek. Definitely wear hiking boots, sandals and sneakers are not great for the terrain of gravel (all sizes) and sand. Pack enough water and sunscreen. We also hiked down to Mooney and Beaver Falls during our trip. You’ll want to do both in one day because the descent down to Mooney is the only way to get to Beaver-so plan accordingly: pack a swimsuit and plenty of snacks, water. Two things you don’t need to worry about packing in for your trip: toilet paper or propane tanks. They have clean compost toilets (complete with plenty of tp) and a lot of half used propane tanks that people have left behind. Just stop at the ranger station on your way into the camp grounds! Please practice Leave No Trace and pack out whatever you pack in. Please teach others the same. The level of litter and garbage we saw was heartbreaking. Most of all, enjoy. This place is paradise.

This is an amazing hike and backpacking experience. This was my wife's and my first time backpacking. Start early, way before the sun is up. The last two mile can get toasty when the sun is out. The hike in was not that bad. We used trekking poles and that helped out a lot on the knees. If you get to camp around 9 or 10 am you will have the best chance to get a great spot. The waterfalls were absolutely beautiful and amazing. Only bummer is that there are a lot of people with that said you can still find some solitude and be with nature. First day setup camp and rested. Second day we did Mooney and Beaver falls since it is the longer hike. Third day be did the other falls (50ft, little and big and Havasu). Fourth day hiked out at 5 am. I'd say leave earlier because that last 2 mile in the sun will suck. These last two mile got me good. I think a saw a snail pass me. My wife though was a beast flying up the switch backs. Even with how slow I went we finished in 3 hrs 40 minutes. If you didn't get your permit this year try for next year. It is amazing experience.

very long hike - 10 miles from the lodge or 8 miles from the campground. we left from the lodge at 545 am. we reached the confluence about 1130, 10 miles later. the trail is mostly flat except for the downhill at Mooney Falls and 1 more rock climb past Beaver. we saw only a out 10 other hikers the entire day on this hike, as most people dont go past Beaver Falls. at the end, the canyon gets narrow. the current is extremely strong and I dont recommend going past this point. also we saw 2 rattlesnakes on the trail so be careful. got back to the lodge at 630 pm. so it was over 11 hours and 20 miles total. from the campground it would have been about 16 miles total.

Amazing hike. If you are staying the three nights you should do it. We followed the stacked rocks (cairn) but there are a few similar routes crossing the river. Expect a full day. We took our time, the views are incredible and there are water falls along the way equally amazing as beaver falls. Spent a good hour at the confluence talking to rafters who like to stop at the confluence.

Amazing!!! Breathtaking views. The trail wasn’t as hard as the one to Phantom ranch but challenging enough to feel like you’ve had a workout. Well worth going to Beaver falls. Just the hike there is an incredible adventure.

From Beaver Falls it was 7.3 to confluence. It took us 3 hours with a 20 min break. Got lost a few times and had to backtrack.. Follow cairns. Worth it!

I don’t know if there’s a trail that can top this. Even carrying a pack @ 37 degrees @ 4 am & trekking 10 miles it was so worth it. The first 1.5 miles you have the greatest descent and even though it’s a relatively easy hike down carrying the weight can hurt your shoulders and hips... even as a moderate hiker this one took its toll... but again, so worth it. In the end you get to enjoy the divine experience of the falls. It’s amazing how small we can seem against an effortless charge of water. It’s a hike that if love to do over and over again and challenge myself to push even harder than I did before.

Great hike, amazing scenery and the switchbacks are awesome!!

This is a beautiful reward at the end!

This is a great adventure hike. Rock scrambling, ropes, chains and ladders, creek crossing, vague trail markings are all part of the game. I recommend leaving at 7 am and making your way to the confluence as quickly as possible and eating lunch at the Colorado River early and taking it easier going back if you have time. Pay close attention to the cairns as the gps signal is very weak in this canyon and it will fail you when you need it most.

it's not easy but the views of the Falls and the experience is worth it. I did not wear ankle supported shoes and I should have. you basically walk on a dried up riverbed of rocks the entire time. you're not supposed to hike at night but we hit the trail at around 3am so we could be out of the sun and it was worth it.

One of the most beautiful and most fun hikes I’ve ever done. My gps read 10.9 from campsite to the Colorado. There are so many payoffs on this adventure...but be prepared! It is tough on your feet if you don’t have water shoes that have a mesh or liner. There are 11+ water crossings, big pebbles and sand kept getting caught in my sandal-like water shoes and me feet ultimately paid. My two friends had more tennis shoe like water shoes and didn’t have the same issues. If you ever have the opportunity to do this hike you should. Come prepared and start early so you can spend time in all the amazing spots that pull you.

Beautiful place, tricky decent, glad I went! I Wouldn’t recommend this hike for everyone, but if you are comfortable*/experienced with hiking and climbing ( at least knowing the three points of contact rule) then you’ll be fine! Glove could be helpful and make sure your shoes have a good tread. Also make sure everyone in your group knows what they are getting themselves into. I wasn’t told about the decent beforehand and I was a little shocked when I first saw it

Best hiking day of my life. Took months of calling and bugging the crew to give in and let me have a pass for one person. The hike down was awesome, but bring plenty of water from the village for the hike back up. Gorgeous.

Amazing, very recommended hike if you love nature and challenges.

one of the most beautiful hikes I have done in my life, Highly recommended.

Absolute paradise! Well worth all my sore muscles!! We stayed 3 days/2 nights, and I wish I had planned another day. Spectacular views from the hilltop all the way to Beaver Falls. Going up and down Mooney was a little scary, but so glad we did!!

Take me back! The aqua water and waterfalls are truly worth the trouble. I was really worried about the hike out of the canyon but we made it out in 5 hrs, and it was not as difficult as I had anticipated.

How does you rate this hike? It is definitely not Hard. This is an easy hike that takes about 45 minutes at a leisurely pace.. This is a 2-mile hike, one way. Most people take over an hour to make their way from Mooney Falls to Beaver Falls. This is due to several factors, such as stopping for photographs, crossing the creek, changing in and out of shoes for/at creek crossings. There are three creek crossings of about knee deep, if that. The foot bridge(s) were washed out in a flash flood in August of 2016 and the Havasupai have not replaced the bridges. There are numerous trails. Some trails are easier than others. Some trails are more scenic. I suggest the scenic route - where I go by the Rope Swing at Mooney Falls and follow the creek downstream (walk in the creek) to Grotto Falls - about 1/4 - 1/3 mile downstream of Mooney Falls. After Grotto Falls I resume following the trail. Things of interest on this hike: Rope Swing Rope Swing Cave Grotto Falls Stairway to Paradise (dried up after flash flood in July of 2018).

one of the best hikes of my life! not terribly difficult, just long. but what a crazy adventure!

Breathtaking views, especially the beaver falls. Make sure to pack light to enjoy the hike.

Follow the Carans! Great hike funnplaces to swim but can be a little tricky to navigate

Amazing experience. Opportunity of a lifetime. Pack as light as possible or send your pack down /up on a mule. The switchbacks are the hardest but then relatively flat thereafter. The hike to Mooney falls is a challenge. Bring rubberized garden gloves for that. And wear GOOD water shoes. Not cheap ones. The falls are breathtaking and worth all the effort! Start as early in the morning (both ways) as possible as there is not much shade from hilltop to Supai village.

If you have the opportunity to go, I say go! You see the pictures but this place is even more magical in person. Spent three nights and four days in the canyon and it was the perfect amount of time to see all the falls & do some additional exploring. They say the hike is 10 miles to camp but my Fitbit had me at 12 miles. Whatever the mileage is, just be prepared to walk a whole lot but just know it's not strenuous. Once you get to camp you're going to be tired but keep walking. The best sites are towards the back and it's a bonus because it will put you closer to Mooney Falls. I will tell you this, the descend down to Mooney Falls is sketchy as shit. So bad that the first day I turned around because I was so scared. The second day my friends convinced me and my other friend to give it another try. We did it, but it was terrifying. This is something I wish I would have known before, so now I'm telling you! Bring gloves! Not necessary but it gives you a sense of security as you death grip those chains. Once you're down there I say book it to Beaver Falls. Everyone likes to hang around Mooney, so if you just head straight to Beaver Falls you may get lucky enough and have the Falls to yourself for a little bit! Portions of that hike were a little sketchy too. I can talk for days about this place ... but I'll spare you the manifesto. But if you have any questions, need advice, etc. send me message and I'll be more than happy to help you out! Happy hiking!
