Havasupai!

This is a classic Arizona backpacking trip! It's justifiably famous for it's towering waterfalls, beautiful blue green water, and incredible hiking. This is one of the great water hikes in the world!

This is a 4-day, 3-night trip.  We'll carpool up Thursday afternoon and will car camp near the trailhead. Early Friday morning, we start the 11 miles hike in to the campground by taking the switchbacks to drop into the canyon. The day's hike takes us through the village of Supai where we can stop for a cold beverage. We'll get to camp early enough to spend the day exploring nearby Havasu falls and swimming in the cool water.

On Saturday, we'll climb down the ladders and chains at Mooney Falls to hike downstream to Beaver Falls, splashing and swimming our way to a great swimming hole.  Some say this is one of the great day hikes in the US.

On Sunday, we'll explore the new Navajo falls and maybe even do some cliff jumping,

We'll get an early start on Monday to beat the heat, hiking the same 11 miles out. We'll get back late Monday.

Due to the hike's length and the elevation gain (2,500'), this is a moderate backpack. If there's interest, we can talk about renting a horse to carry our gear ($50 extra charge for 32 lbs) to make it an easier day hike. The $110 cost covers the Supai entrance, camping, and PayPal fees. Check your schedule carefully before signing up as there are no refunds or transfers if you cancel for any reason.

    Looks like you guys had a good time :) They were still burning horses from the flood when I was there a few days earlier. Some parts smelled pretty bad lol. How was the hike to the Colorado? did you just follow Beaver Falls further down?

      We saw (and smelled) dead mules too. The Colorado hike was hard but rewarding. Pretty much followed the creek along the Beaver falls although we lost the trail few times :)

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
