Mooney Falls is just 1-2 miles from Havisu Falls (which is 10 miles from the parking area at canyon's edge. It is a must see if you are at Havisu Falls. The climb down to the falls from the trail has an Indiana Jones feel; not for the faint of heart. But the falls and pools were just as nice,... More

Well worth the longer walk as it is more secluded but still a great swim and play area. The hike down the last section is steep and narrow also causing you to bend over to get through some small tunnels and a narrow place where holding on to the chains is recommended. I am not sure I would take some... More

I was pleasantly surprised by this one! It's massive and even though the trip down the ladder is a bit scary, it's well worth the oasis down at the bottom.

Beautiful! It's a bit of a climb (with ladders) -- but worth it! We enjoyed our visit to Mooney Falls!

A 200 ft waterfall in the Grand Canyon. Never would of imagined such beauty. The climb down/up can be a little uneasy if you don't like heights as you have to use chains, rebar and ladders on the side of the canyon wall to get down to the bottom of the falls. It is worth the climb.

Getting down to the bottom is a bit of an adventure but one that is well rewarded. There are chains to lower yourself down the mountain. Don't go when it's raining or wet because it can e deadly. One slip or you lose your hand hold and you're a gonner. It's safe if you take your time.

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.
