My family is looking to travel to Havasupai Falls in late May early June 2016. We were going to camp, but my sister does not want to carry the gear the whole hike. Is the lodge called Supai? Is this hike easy to hike with no directions? Looking for the best info on Days. Sounds like three days, two nights is the best choice. We are all in shape and very outdoorsy, so looking for an average hike time? I love taking pictures, so my screw up any tired hike. Are there any falls we must see even if it is out of the way?
Thank you so much for all the answers, it was exactly what I needed. Was able to reach someone at the lodge and they are booked March-June already. We will pick a different date.
Since you have several questions, you'll probably get better info at the tripadvisor forum for Supai, Arizona. Here are a few short answers:
(1) The lodge has no name other than "The Lodge". "Supai" is the name of the village in which The Lodge is located.
(2) Since you are very outdoorsy, you should have no trouble following the trail from the trailhead (Hualapai Hilltop) to Supai.
(3) Typical hiking time is three to five hours.
(4) Three days/two nights in Supai is a good choice. Also allocate one more night, prior to the hike, at a stop nearest the trailhead.
(5) All of the waterfalls are along Havasu Creek/Havasu Trail, starting about one mile downstream from Supai, and continuing for many miles. The most famous is Havasu Falls; the tallest is Mooney Falls.
(6) You didn't ask this, but I want to stress that reservations for late May will be difficult to get. When I went in 2014, I made reservations at the Lodge a year in advance. Call as soon as possible, and have alternate dates in mind. The reservation will include the permit required to enter Havasupai territory. [if some of you are camping, call for a campground reservation the moment the camping phone line opens -- I believe on February 1, probably at 8 am Mountain Time]
