Havasupai Trail / Havasu Falls, Grand Canyon 4 Day, 3 Night Backpack
Come backpack the world famous Havasupai Trail! People travel from all over the globe and spend $1,200 + for this amazing world-class adventure. But I have secured 8 three night permits for $220 each! Also I have hiked Havasupai several times and know of the secret slot canyons, caves, and best places to cliff dive. BE SURE TO BRING WATER SHOES. To join this trip, add yourself to the waitlist, and then PM, call, or text me at (505)[masked] for payment instructions (PayPal or cash). You then will have 24 hours to make payment. Upon paying, your spot is secured, and you'll be added to the going list! Please ask if you have any questions! Day 0 (Sat): Travel (carpool from ABQ) to Grand Canyon Caverns where we will car camp ($11 per person, breakfast and hot showers included). There also is the option to tour the largest dry caverns in America, 300 feet underground. Day 1 (Sun): After breakfast drive to the Hualapai Hilltop TH and backpack down into the canyon to our campground along Havasu Creek, where we will spend the next three nights. 10 miles total, about 2000' descent. 8 miles in we will reach Havasu Village, where we will take a one hour break to pick up permits and have lunch. There are restrooms, restaurant, snack bar, and a small convenience store. Bring cash! After lunch we will backpack another mile, drop our packs, and hike down to spectacular, often-missed Navajo Falls and Fifty Foot Falls, where we can swim, explore, and just play for another hour or so. After swimming, we will backpack the last mile to the top of stunning Havasu Falls, follow the trail down, and enter the campgrounds, where we will proceed to a beautiful, secluded site with small streams. There also is a natural spring with potable water at the campgrounds, so no treatment necessary! We then have the rest of the day to just relax and / or spend time at Havasu Falls at the beginning of the campgrounds, and / or hike down to amazing 200' high Mooney Falls at the end of the campgrounds. Day 2 (Mon): Climb down to the bottom of Mooney Falls, and day hike to Beaver Falls. 7 miles round trip, about 300' descent. Swimming, rope swings, cliff diving, waterfall staircase, hidden canyon, Baba Yaga's Hut, and incredible Beaver Falls! For many, the highlight of the trip. Day 3 (Tue): Hang out and hike, swim, relax at your leisure OR day hike into GCNP and follow Havasu Creek to the confluence with the Colorado River. 14 miles roundtrip, about 500' descent. Few people, slot canyon, long horn sheep, and beautiful scenery. Highly recommended! Day 4 (Wed): Break camp early and backpack back up to the Hilltop. 10 miles, 2000' ascent. Travel home.

What we're about

Public Group

Here's a place where you can meet other backpacking enthusiasts! Join us on backpacking trips, meet other backpackers, discuss gear, find those "favorite" trails and have fun out there with others who enjoy the activity as much as you do!

Backpackers of all ability levels are welcome, from beginner to advanced. We encourage anyone who's thought about backpacking to give it a try. Our trip descriptions will always include the level of difficulty, so you can decide whether it's the right trip for you or not. And what a great place to get advise if you're just starting out!

During the season (April thru October) we'll schedule 3 or 4 trips per month (and sometimes more) and we'll even work in a few trips during the months of March and November. Out of necessity the majority are weekenders. From time to time we schedule longer trips (3 or 4 days or more). During the winter we'll also plan a few backpacking trips along with some skiing, snowboarding & snowshoeing trips. Over this past season we scheduled over 50 backpacking trips and a couple "get to know everyone" cookouts! You can also check our message board for someone who might be planning a trip. So you've got a lot of opportunities to get out there and hit the trail!

Please read our RSVP Policy which is found in our "Pages" section, and while you're there why not go ahead and read the entire page. There's a lot of useful information in there that our members should know!

Have any questions? Email the organizer, Bob F!

We hope you decide to join our group!

WHAT'S NEW?

With the continued growth of our group we're looking for additional assistant organizers to plan a few trips or people who just want to organize a single trip during the season. If anyone is interested please contact the group organizer (Bob F) for all the details!

It's been one heck of a trip so far!!!
