Gorgeous falls. 1000 ft drop, i think... You can swim in it... It's beautiful...watch out for the crude tunnell/ ladder combination That takes you down to the bottom of the falls .. it's one -way , but it's atleast regulated by some Indian tribe men there. If there is anybody who is afraid to go down or up, you will... More

The hike down was worth it. We didn't spend much time at Mooney falls. We hike down to beaver falls, very beautiful.

Falls were gorgeous but the trail down left me in limb shaking panic but of course I am terrified of heights so this was to be expected. I watched the you tube videos and thought maybe it wasn't so bad but boy was I wrong. Glad I did it but don't think I could do it again.

This was a challenge and not for the faint of heart getting down or up Mooney falls but the falls are spectacular.

Beautiful 200ft+ waterfall not far past the Havasu campsite. The descent to the bottom of the waterfall is a bit harrowing but worth the nervousness. Basically there is a hole made in the face of the cliff, steps, ropes and ladder -oh and it’s dark BUT the reward is completely worth it. It’s doable for sure, just take your time.... More

I have a very healthy fear of heights and did not enjoy the hike down or up the cliff at Mooney Fall one bit. It was scary as s***. No doubt the falls are gorgeous and the hike further down canyon is beautiful, but the entire time I dreaded the trip back up the cliff, which sort of took the... More

There is a lot of scary details on the Internet for the descent to Mooney Falls and it lives up to its hype. There are some skinny little switchbacks on the trail down, just as you leave the rim of the cliff. That might have been the scariest part because one section was totally open to the shear drop.

After making the 10 mile trek to the Havasu Creek campground, you are rewarded with the other worldly waterfalls amid a Garden of Eden setting. The trail to Mooney Falls requires some intestinal fortitude. However, even those not willing to use the chains and wooden ladders to reach the bottom can be rewarded in a big way. Make the effort...

The sheer power of Mooney Falls makes it unapproachable. After seeing pictures online, I really thought I was going to walk up to the falls and feel the water. I didn't see any one get close. The water is coming down so hard that it creates it's own mini-hurricane; rain-like mist swirling 20+ feet in the air, 1 foot waves... More

If you plan to visit Havasu Canyon and Falls, carry your own stuff in. That is, unless you want to directly support animal suffering. Starvation, bleeding sores and dehydration are the most blatant symptoms of the horses and mules in Supai, but it gets much worse. These poor animals, skinny to the bone, are forced to carry tourists stuff into... More
