We weren't prepared for what we got when we went to Mooney. Almost as beautiful as the Havasu falls, this is a must visit. Around half a mile from the camp ground (depending on where you camp), you need to go down a series of...More

I am terrified of heights but this climb is so worth it. I was lucky that we went with Wildland Trekking and our guides were amazing. Mooney Falls is over 200 feet high, taller than niagara. It was impressive to see! The descent to the...More

This is my favorite waterfall I've ever seen. The water color, the height, and the overall adventurous hike down make it my top. Tip: The hike/climb down is probably not recommended for young children since you climb down chains and ladders that anyone can get...More

Getting to the base of the falls is fun if you are an adrenalin junky. You have to traverse a couple of tunnels, ladders, and stone steps along with chains to help you hold on. Be prepared of delays as some people "freeze up" on...More

A group of 40 or so people were going down and were taking along time and some were down at falls waiting to come up, so we knew it would be a long wait and might get dark, so we didn't go down.

Stunning and magnificent hike! The hike down the ladder is very scary and you should be strong, fairly flexible and not afraid of heights. The hike in and out can be done by anyone if you just take it slow and easy EVEN WITH YOUR...More

Awesome hike down to the falls. Definitely scary climbing down, but I always enjoy those kinds of things. Views of the falls are amazing. We hiked down at around 8am and we were the only ones there.

2 tunnels later and with the help of chains and bolts, you will arrive at this magical landing with the full frontal view of the Mooney Falls. This is the best fall in supai in my opinion because of the thrill of the descend. It...More

You can swim anywhere! Just stay away from the base of the falls of course as they are very powerful. They said supposedly a Boy Scout drowned there years ago.
