Hike to Hidden Falls in the Havasupai Reservation

1 miles  - Out-and-Back Trail

Added by Andrew Hoang

Want to cliff jump at Havasupai but not down to jump 125 footers? This is the perfect place to get 40-60 foot jumps in!

Coming from the campground, you'll want to backtrack back towards Navajo and Fifty Foot falls, crossing the bridge that you came over coming into the campground. Continue on the trail until you see a picnic table with a small canopy with a big piece of tarp/burlap hanging from the front. Go past it, hug the rocks to the left and continue down towards the river. You'll have to get your feet wet, but there's somewhat of a defined trail. Continue to hug the rocks to your left until you see the falls. At this point, you'll have to cross the water over to your right. From there, there are 3 spots you can dive from, 30 feet, 40 feet, and 60 feet. At 60 feet, you'll want to jump far outwards as there are rocks directly underneath you. It's pretty deep, so don't worry about it and enjoy!

Great Place for Jumping

This waterfall is not as well known as all of the other major falls along Havasu Creek so there are generally less crowds. You can't see it from the trail so many people walk right past it. Great spot to cliff jump. It's also worth noting, that a permit is required to visit Havasupai so you can't just show up and hike. The hike to the village of Supai is 8 miles from the rim and roughly 9 miles to this waterfall.

Loved it here!

I loved Havasupai! This was such a great experience! I would second his advice to bring water shoes! I had running shoes as well but the river is right along most of the hikes so it's really fun to have shoes like Teva's where you can just jump in at any time.
