Hikers often enjoy the eight-mile trek to the remote Native American village, Supai, located on the Havasupai Indian Reservation. Along the way the sights include some of the more magnificent waterfalls of the Grand Canyon including Havasu Falls, plus the various swimming holes of Havasu Creek. To begin this route, hikers start out from Hualapai Hilltop, which is situated at the end of a paved road, some 90 miles northwest of Seligman.
This parking lot on the south rim of the Grand Canyon gets you to the trail to incredibly beautiful Havasu Falls and Mooney Falls, which lie on the Havasupai Indian Reservation. An 8 mile hike through first, dry desert and then a riparian canyon takes you to Supai, a modernish Indian village. 1.5-2 miles more gets you to a campground between Havasu Falls and Mooney Falls. Sometimes the condition of the portapotties there can repel the dead, other times, their condition almost approaches clean. But the exquisite beauty of the waterfalls and the pools below each overcome all that ugliness. Visit in late fall or early spring. get a reservation from the Havasupai before going. You can also get mule service or helicopter service.
