This hike is my favorite so far… It’s a long haul, but it’s worth it. You park at the Havasupai hilltop, and either leave your stuff for a mule (which you arrange for ahead of time) or you carry it all in on your back. Then you proceed to hike for miles and miles until you make it to the Supai village, where you can buy some supplies, eat a warm meal, or just pass through, but whatever you do, you need to stop in and check in and pay the entry fee, and the nightly camping fees. Then you hike along the Havasupai Creek until it turns into Navajo Falls, follow it for a little further and it becomes Havasupai falls, then follow it to the campground. Past the camp ground it turns into the biggest falls, Mooney Falls. You can climb down a series of rocks and ladders, and swim at the bottom, or continue down to Beaver Falls, crossing the river three times to get there. You can actually follow the river all the way down to the Colorado, but I haven’t made it that far yet! ? This hike is really great, but practice first, it required a fair amount of strength and endurance. Also, bring extra cash… If you get hurt you can get flown out or ride a mule.

There was way more wind than I expected at the rim... two tents were staked, and one was loaded with gear. The ground is pretty bad for stakes at the rim, so if you do use them, make sure you don't half-ass it. find some softer ground by noticing where plant grow, they like softer ground too. don't use sand, you might fly away in the middle ofthe night. :)© Bob Wold
