AAA Editor Notes
Havasu Canyon is accessible from Hualapai Hilltop, which is reached from SR 66 via a turnoff 5 miles e. of Peach Springs. There are no services after the turnoff. Most of the 65-mile road from Peach Springs is in good condition.
Havasu Canyon is home to the village of Supai, which serves as the governmental center of the Havasupai Indian Reservation. Automobiles must be left at Hualapai Hilltop; the 8-mile journey to the canyon floor and Havasu Falls can be covered on horseback, helicopter or on foot down a precipitous trail.
Note: The trail is only recommended for experienced hikers in good physical condition. The return climb out of the canyon is very arduous. Summer temperatures may prohibit daytime trips; phone ahead to confirm. The canyon is subject to flash floods. Hikers must carry at least two liters of water. Camping is permitted; no open fires are allowed. Swimming is permitted. Horse rental is available.
