Angelic falls and a well-preserved pueblo village await your descent. Make reservations and don't underestimate the walk back up to the rim.

Here is where you'll find the trailhead to Havasupai Falls and the Havasupai Indian Reservation. This trail begins with a steep descent into the yellow and red dusted Havasupai Canyon. This is the main road for the Havasupai people to transport supplies, so it is very well traveled. Give mules the right-of-way and, particularly on the switchbacks, keep your back to the canyon wall as they pass. After an 8 mile walk through the canyon, mostly walking on the bed of the wash beneath towering canyon walls, hikers will begin to see lush green cottonwoods surrounding the clearest blue-green river you've ever seen, signifying your arrival at the Village of Supai, the campgrounds, and the beautiful falls that lie beyond. The Hualapai Hilltop is north of Peach Springs, off old Highway 66.
