Havasupai Waterfalls

5 Havasupai Waterfalls

Havasu Falls

Havasu Falls is the most famous of the Havasupai waterfalls. However, it is not the first you reach when hiking into the Canyon. It is actually the third waterfall during the hiking journey to Havasupai, and it is the one closest to the campground. It offers fantastic swimming, a relaxing sandy area near the water, wonderful shade, and world-class photography opportunities.

Mooney Falls

Mooney Falls is the highest and perhaps the most spectacular of the Havasupai waterfalls. Havasu Creek's turqouise waters plunge nearly 200 feet off Mooney Falls, the sound of which reverberates off the limestone walls surrounding the waterfall, creating a roar that echoes up and down the canyon. Reaching the bottom of Mooney Falls requires a semi-technical downclimb using bolts, ladders and chains.

Beaver Falls

Beaver Falls is the farthest downstream waterfall at Havasupai. It is approximately 3.5 miles downstream from the campground and requires off-trail hiking, scrambling, wading, and bushwacking to reach. It's recommended to only undertake this hike if you're up for 5-7 hours of hiking and are well prepared for it.

Lil' Navajo Falls

Lil' Navajo Falls is the first waterfall hikers reach after they leave the village of Supai and descend toward the campground. It is a beautiful waterfall that is worth the 5 minute walk from the main trail to see. Reaching the bottom is more difficult, but worth the effort as visitors often have it to themselves.

Fifty Foot Falls

Fifty Foot Falls is the first major swimming spot between the Village of Supai and the campground. It's easy to get to and offers a wonderful, refreshing dip on hot days. It makes for an excellent picnic spot and offers great photography opportunities with red rock cliffs towering behind the falls.
