Yelp! The climb down was exciting, but worth the adrenaline rush. Mooney Falls was breathtakingly beautiful. Much bigger than the one by the campsite entrance.

Our trip through the Grand Canyon was complete when we spotted Havasu Falls. This was even more spectacular than Navajo Falls and that took some doing. However our guides realized that we still had fire in our bellies and took us to Mooney Falls and Beaver Falls. The trip down to Mooney was a bit treacherous but all of that... More

I've gone to Mooney two years in a row now. I am afraid of heights and last year it took a lot of my mental reserves to make it down. This year, knowing what to expect, it was easier but still scary for me. This year I tucked a pair of work gloves in my pocket and before I got... More

It is one of the best places of the world .. kind of a treasure hidden in supai. If you have ever dreamt of going to a waterfall within a forest and away from habitat with some adventure reaching there, then this surely is one of them. Take some water shoes and swim wear along with you.

Mooney Falls is a magical place that requires mature thinking and a kid's sense of adventure. Think first, play hard! Yes, the trail through tunnels, chains and ladders should be taken seriously. It's worth it. Use the 3-point contact method and you'll succeed. Simply put, 3-points of contact is always having one foot and two hands or one hand and... More

The climb up and down are half the fun, Taking photos and rummaging around the base is the other half. Not for those who have problems with balance.

We spent a couple hours playing in the pools at the bottom and swinging on the rope into the water. This place, and the hike to Beaver Falls, were my two favorite parts of our visit in the canyon. I recommend to beat the crowds to this place. I never felt overcrowded any time on the hike or at the... More
