The hike begins with about 1.5 - 2 miles of switch backs. The path is wide and well groomed. No problem bringing young children. After the switchbacks, you have 6 miles of walking and I mean walking, down a river bed. I stress walking because I was told it was a strenuous hike. It is not! We took a lunch... More

This hike started my love for backpacking and the outdoors. We went with a guide company that took care of everything including cooking and all supplies brought in by mules. We really enjoyed being able to focus 100% on the scenery and the hiking with a day pack. The views were incredible. Water was perfect temperature. The weather in April... More

New rules for anyone wanting passes for havasupai. This year you have to pay upfront for camping passes by visa or MasterCard, and there will be no refunds. This was a AWSOME trip. Best advice is to train train train before hand. It is a lot of hard work, but so worth the effort. The waterfalls are more beautiful in... More

I believe this 1966 camping trip was not only one of my most enjoyable and memorable trips but may have been my last. We hiked in of course, however you could schedule to be brought in by horseback. We stayed 5 days and visted the village store once for ice and a few other items. There was a lot to... More

Making a reservation/sneaking in: We had been calling and calling for days to make a reservation for the campground, most of the time we didn't get through or they just didn't pick up the phone. When they finally did pick up, they told us they were fully booked for the 3 days we had in mind, eventhough reservations were just... More

I am probably the least active person I know. I did not go on too many hikes to prepare myself - in the end I can say I under estimated the hike BUT I survived. We started our hike down with all our gear at 630am and took us about 6hours to reach the campsite - there were plenty of... More

It is hard to get reservations here so plan in advance. Hike is tough and long, especially with a full pack. Bring water and electrolyte. If you get cold suggest a shortie wet suit which extends your time to play in the water. Recommend water shoes with closed toe. Potable water available in the village near check in and in... More
