This one is about a mile downstream from Havasu through the campground. Much higher and definitely not a hike to the bottom everyone would do. tunnels and chains and ladders to get to the bottom. Should be viewed earlier in the day when the sun is shining one them and the pool below. It gets a show later in the... More

Just a little bit scary in the descent and it is well worth it!!! Going up is much easier. The climbing part makes it more fun! It is very doable - my 11 years daughter did it by herself w/o any help with us.

I'm not sure what all the hype is about in going down Mooney Falls. I'm kind of a chicken when it comes to exposure while hiking and I did not feel unsafe going down at all. There are plenty of secure chains and pegs to hold onto and most of it is similar to walking down steps. If you go... More

Challenging descent to the base. Not for everyone. Decent requires going through a cave, using ropes and ladders and is quite wet midway from the mist of the waterfall.

Amazing water fall recommend shoes specific for the water and gloves because the hike down is slippery and you will have to hold on to chains. Don't let fear stop you from making the hike down it's worth it when you are standing in front of that fall.

Nature at it's best. Beautiful blue/green water, 200 foot drop, red sandstone cliffs and a heart dropping climb to the bottom.

Ok, so while the falls is beautiful, we couldn't make the descent to the bottom, which meant we couldn't get to Beaver Falls. You climb down through two short sections of caves, then you have to traverse down a steep rocky section, followed by a section where you hold on to a loose chain as your support to climb down,...

A bit scary in the descent but well worth it. Watch out for the undertow! Colors amazing and water fairly warm for March.

Visited Mooney Falls on a 3 day hike in Havasupai. Mooney Falls is approximately 2 1/2 miles from Supai village and 1 mile from Havasu Falls. The trail next to Mooney Falls is vertical with chain assists and simple wooden ladders. The use of these aids is the only way to get from the top of the falls to the... More
