Abby and I hiked Havasupai Falls mid-May of 2015. We beat the heat and the crowds by a couple of weeks. Havasupai Falls is located two hours northeast of Kingman, Az and is a 10-mile hike with a few thousand-foot descents, into the canyon. We stayed two nights and paid around 160 bucks (prices may change) for the both of us (when we reached the bottom), for permitting a campground. If you don’t make phone reservations, the price is double, and there is a chance you may be turned away. Here is their official site CLICK HERE. I highly recommend hiking in and taking a helicopter out for the extra 85 dollars (prices may change), mostly so you can spend more time at the falls. Below are some pics of the amazing water, green trees, and red rock. If you have any specific questions about the falls, feel free to contact me.

We drove about 13 hours to get near the trailhead.Havasupai Falls We stayed our first night at the Caverns Inn, which is about an hour from the trailhead parking. It is in the middle of nowhere and much closer than Kingman, so you can get an earlier start.Havasupai FallsHavasupai FallsHavasupai FallsHavasupai FallsHavasupai FallsHavasupai Falls

We had to park 1/2 a mile from the trailhead, so I dropped Abby and our gear off and jogged back. Havasupai FallsHavasupai Falls

The helicopter lands at the reservation which is 8 miles in and 2 miles from the campgrounds. Havasupai FallsHavasupai FallsHavasupai FallsThis the first big fall, great for swimming. Best to swim when the sun hits the canyon around noon-2pm in May.Havasupai Falls

It is mostly always wet from the falls and when there are groups going up and down, it can be really slow when passing each other. Havasupai FallsHavasupai FallsHavasupai FallsHavasupai FallsWe hiked to Mooney Falls pretty early, so it was less crowded and easier to climb down.

  1. I’m stunned that anyone could see the abuse and neglect of some of the pack animals and still tout the “beauty” despite the obvious violence.
