Has anyone hiked this in February?

My Friends and I are looking to hike Havasu Falls & Mooney Falls in early February 2013 and wondering what the trail conditions and weather would be like.

It will be chilly to cold in the daytime with rain and snow possible, freezing overnight. Check weather close to the time. This is a remote area with no services.

Use Grand Canyon NP weather as a guide as there is no reporting station in Supai. If you enter Supai in online weather, it defaults to Kingman which has very different weather. Supai will be slightly warmer than GCNP but share the same precipitation forecast.

Be sure of the weather before you set out on this venture.

Thanks so much for this Bob. We ended up postponing the trip, but this is very helpful.

I noticed there is a weather forecast for Supai, AZ on http://www.wunderground.com/ , not sure if that really shows weather for Supai village or something else though.

Will be there in a week, will check how accurate that weather forecast is :)

The Supai weather forecast is taken from the GCNP at the south rim. Since there's an elevation difference of 3-4000 feet, you should expect conditions at Havasu to be somewhat warmer and milder than what is reported. There are no weather monitoring devices at Havasu.

You're right!

I just noticed it says:

Weather Station Grand Canyon (KGCN), Elevation 6608 ft

for Supai, AZ

I guess it will be warmer then, which I'd consider as a good thing for April :)

Yep, and it was wonderful! I left my review here: tripadvisor.com/…REVIEWS and there is one more on Mooney Falls.

Let me know if you have any specific questions.
