|Pack animals carry our gear while we
hike the trail into the Havasu Indian Reservation in the Grand Canyon. This
is a land of high canyon walls and sparkling waterfalls cascading hundreds of feet into
turquoise pools. The Havasupai speak their own language and still bring in their supplies
by mule train.
You can make this a take-it-easy trip: swim, sit by the waterfalls, and visit the
village. Or join us on the challenging hike to the Colorado River. On this 10-mile round-trip
hike we cross Havasu Creek 12 times and some minor rock climbing is involved. We follow the
creek trail down into the inner Canyon, finally arriving at the muddy, churning Colorado River.
This is a hike to test your mettle!
Thank you so much for everything. It's an incredible outlet that you offer women, it's empowering and tons of fun. Your organization, cooking and attention to detail is just exemplary." - Kelly Huber
