Women's Only Havasupai Tripsprint
Do you want to backpack to some of the most amazing waterfalls in the US, but without a bunch of whiny men in tow? Well, join us for a trip to Havasupau just for the girls! This women's only trip has you hiking to Havasu Falls in Arizona's Grand Canyon using your own two feet, carrying your own gear and reveling in the accomplishment you will get to call your own.
While you're at it, discover the turquoise waters of Havasupai while camping along Havasu Creek on our 3 or 4 day, Women-only Backpacking Adventure.
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.
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.
For the 3 day route, the first and last days are the same. You just have one fewer day to be at Havasupai to swim, explore and relax.
Our tour begins in North Scottsdale. We head to the trailhead at Hualapai Hilltop. Once we arrive, we will hike 10 miles (16.1 km) to the campground and descend about 2,200 ft (670.6 m). On the hike to the campground, we pass through the village of Supai, which has a post office, general store and cafe. In fact, Supai is the most remote village in the USA. Keep in mind the hike is mostly in a dry river bed so it is sandy and gravelly (meaning it can be slow goin').
After breakfast, we will hike downstream from the campground on a 6-mile round trip hike to the remote Beaver Falls. Along the trail between Mooney and Beaver Falls, you will cross the Havasu Creek several times and your path will take you through fields of canyon grape. Beaver Falls is a great destination as its is a lesser visited waterfall. Go a little further and you will cross back into Grand Canyon National Park. Today's hike is 6 miles roundtrip.
Today is spent exploring the four waterfalls in the area: Havasu, Mooney, Rock Falls and the new Navajo Falls. The last two falls were created in the flood of 2008. There are plenty of places to swim and great scenery around every corner. We may also head into the village of Supai for a lunch of Indian Tacos (this is optional and not included in package price). Total hiking distance for the day is around 5 to 7 miles (8 to 11.3 km).
We follow 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, the group is welcome to join the guides for lunch in the Route 66 town of Seligman, AZ. Lunch is optional and not included in the package.
