Havasupai Falls 3 Day
Level 2: Beginner Backcountry - Appropriate for more adventurous families and more active beginner backpackers. Level 2 trips still involve manageable daily mileage, but will be more ambitious overall itineraries, with opportunity for more aggressive side hiking and a little less relaxation. These trips will involve mostly well-maintained, but also some unmaintained trails.X

Day 1:Backpackers begin their tour very early in Flagstaff, in order to arrive at the Hualapai Hilltop trailhead by approximately 9am. The 10.3 mile (16.6km) Havasupai Trail begins with a steep descent, but the majority is a reasonably gentle hike down through Esplanade and Wescogame sandstones on the way toward the Supai Village and Havasupai campground. The last several miles of the hike are along the lush riparian corridor of Havasu Creek, and the world-famous Havasu Falls come into view just before entering the campground. Note: There are restrooms located at the trailhead, Supai Village, and the campground.
Day 2:From the creekside campground, hikers will have a number of options to choose from, including relaxing and swimming beneath Havasu Falls or Navajo Falls, or exploring Mooney Falls or Beaver Falls further downstream. Guests should note that exploration of Mooney Falls and all points downstream involves a white-knuckle, chain-grabbing, exposed, yet exciting climb down deeper into the Canyon. Ask your guide for more information.
Day 3:On this last day, backpackers enjoy another hearty breakfast before beginning their 10.3 mile (16.6km) return up the Havasupai Trail to Hualapai Hilltop. At the top, our groups relax near the trailhead and savor their accomplishments over a sandwich and cold refreshment.
