There is an 80 foot decent down the canyon wall. I did it, but what you must remember what goes down must come up....I did make it up. The climb is made holding onto chains attached to the canyon wall with spikes and foot holds in the canyon wall and then three wooden ladders takes you to the very bottom.

Two 65year old women (me and my friend) went here in November and didn't have problems with the climb up or down - lots to hang on to but some quite big steps. The reward for getting down is great - a lovely green area with beautiful turquoise falls and river. It was a bit cold for swimming but we... More

A nice climb down (and up) to this gateway for all down stream. Colder water as it is in the shade for most of the day and also the 3rd fall in a row with each on cooler than the previous. Beautiful.

The climb down to and up from Mooney Falls was an adventure and highlight of our time at Havasupai Falls. After reading reviews that many people can do the climb down Mooney Falls, I knew we had to do it even if it may have been a bit scary, especially given the distance we travelled to get there. It was... More

Gorgeous waterfall! Worth the descent down to see! The climb down is a bit challenging but you can do it! The water is so blue and beautiful.

The climb down and then back up to Mooney is a bit challanging , two 60 year olds did it, with not looking down and hanging on, Our guide just told us to make sure we had 3 holds at all times. I was worried about going back up but it was easier than the trip down. It is beautiful... More

Not much to say other than it is so beautiful here. They have a fun little rope swing to jump into a pool on. You do have to do a little hair raising climb down in to the falls. Just take your time and don't look down and you will be fine. We explored down the river a little ways.... More

All of the waterfalls in the Havasupai Reservayion are gorgeous but Mooney Falls is the most rewarding. The trail down is a little scary but 2 almost 50 year olds in average shape were able to do it. It was like finding a piece if paradise. The base of the falls themselves was a little crowded but hiking along the... More

No words to describe. Simply amazing. Getting down to the falls is tricky. Read other reviews. But worth it.

Lot of people say that Mooney Falls is most beautiful waterfall in the world. And they may be right. The place is breath taking and worth 11 mile hike. Descent to the bottom of the waterfall may be a challenge, be careful. Personally I like Beaver Falls more then Mooney Falls, but to get to Beaver Falls you need to... More
