Havasupai Falls 3 Dayprint
Havasu Falls in Arizona's Grand Canyon, also known as Havasupai Falls (pronounced HAVE-a-sue-PIE where the 'a' sounds like duh), is just one of several majestic waterfalls found on the Havasupai reservation that are anywhere from 75 to 200 feet high. While you will not see the amazing vistas Grand Canyon is known for, you will experience some of the most beautiful waterfalls in the Grand Canyon and in the United States. The hike to Havasu Falls is perfect for novice adventurers, a family vacation or a getaway with a group of friends. After you carry your backpacks into Havasu Canyon, we set up base camp at Havasu Creek and spend our free days exploring the trails in the area and swimming by waterfalls.
Just Roughin' It DOES NOT utilize horses, mules or any 2, 4, 8 or 10 legged creature of any kind to assist you to get to the area - and we have not since 2008. We are a backpacking company and feel the best way to enjoy the area is from your own hard work, not off the backs of others. No one is entitled to visit nor explore amazing places just because it is there. The more you work for it, the more you will appreciate and respect it - or did your mom not teach you that? I bet she did. Remember the Walkman cassette player you paid for? I bet you never let your younger sister ever touch it because you bought it with your hard earned allowance money. And yet she still got bubble gum stuck in it! And then you stuck her head in the toilet. Yeah, never happened to me either.
Our Havasupai tours will take you through the village of Supai, which is inhabited by the Havasupai Indians, and then on to a Havasu Falls campground where we spend a few nights under the stars next to the bustling Havasu Creek. All of our hiking tour options allow you plenty of time to explore Havasu Falls, the 198-foot Mooney Falls, the remote and quiet Beaver Falls, as well as the new falls created by the 2008 flood.
After we pick you up from the Fairfield Inn Scottsdale North, we will head to the trailhead at Hualapai Hilltop. Upon arrival, we hike 10 miles (16.1 km) to the campground between Havasu and Mooney Falls, descending about 2,200 ft (670.6 m). On the hike to the campground, we pass through the village of Supai to collect our permits for the trip and maybe grab an ice cream from a local store.
Today is our only full day to spend in the area, so we try to see as much as we can - and there is lots! There are plenty of places to swim, waterfalls to see and great scenery around every corner. If time allows and everyone is up for it, we may make the hike to Beaver Falls. Total hiking distance for the day is around 5 to 7 miles (8 to 11.3 km).
After breakfast, we pack up and hike out the same trail we came in, but this time we head up 2,200 (670.6 m) feet over 10 miles (16.1 km). The hike up is relatively gradual until the last 1.2 miles (1.9 km), which we take slow and easy. Once we pack up the vehicles, we head into the Route 66 town of Seligman, AZ for a quick bite to eat. Lunch is optional and not included in the package. We typically arrive back in Scottsdale at around 6pm.
