This is my favorite waterfall I've ever seen. The water color, the height, and the overall adventurous hike down make it my top. Tip: The hike/climb down is probably not recommended for young children since you climb down chains and ladders that anyone can get...More

A group of 40 or so people were going down and were taking along time and some were down at falls waiting to come up, so we knew it would be a long wait and might get dark, so we didn't go down.

Stunning and magnificent hike! The hike down the ladder is very scary and you should be strong, fairly flexible and not afraid of heights. The hike in and out can be done by anyone if you just take it slow and easy EVEN WITH YOUR...More

Awesome hike down to the falls. Definitely scary climbing down, but I always enjoy those kinds of things. Views of the falls are amazing. We hiked down at around 8am and we were the only ones there.

2 tunnels later and with the help of chains and bolts, you will arrive at this magical landing with the full frontal view of the Mooney Falls. This is the best fall in supai in my opinion because of the thrill of the descend. It...More

This fall is a mile hike from the Havasupai campground. To get to Mooney falls you have to climb down 2 tunnels and ladders on a cliff. I went with Pygmy guide and it was a breeze. I am scared of heights, but my adventurous...More

Sorry, I couldn't help myself. There were two "terrible" reviews and one of them wasn't about the falls at all, but about the horses and mules. It got over 100 helpful votes. While I don't advocate animal abuse THAT has nothing to do with Mooney...More

A permit is absolutely required to enter Havasupai Territory. Without it, you won't be allowed to even begin your hike. Single day hikes are prohibited by the Havasupai; permits are available only as part of an overnight... More

The pools are an inch deep to 6' or more. I would NOT jump into them. The pools are deceptive. In one place, you are on an underwater ledge 2' inches deep, one step over and it is 4' deep. I would make sure you have either... More

I do not think a 6 year old would be scared, but I saw a dad there who turned around and I was glad he did. The ladders have "thicker" rungs and I think they would be hard for small hands to hang onto. Some of the steps up... More
