Your adventure starts at the trailhead at Hualapai Hilltop at the end of Indian Road 18, off of Route 66. Hike down the trail 8 miles to get to Supai, AZ, the capital of the Havasupai Indian Reservation. There you can pay for a camp site and other fees if you want, and then check out the cafe and grocery store. Continue another 2 miles down the trail to reach the campground, but make sure you stop and check out New Navajo Falls, Rock Falls, and Havasu Falls on your way into camp.

Another half mile beyond camp, and a steep down climb will bring you to Mooney Falls, the tallest of all the falls. At 190 feet Mooney Falls crashes over a cliff into a gorgeous bright turquoise pool. Continue down stream four more miles and check out Beaver Falls, a cluster of scenic cascades with plenty of fun things to jump off. Another 4 miles down Havasu Creek will take you to the junction of the Colorado River and the Grand Canyon.
