Havasu Falls/Grand Canyon Trek2018

TREK OVERVIEW

This year's 2018 MM4MM domestic hike explored a spectacular section of the Grand Canyon, the majestic Havasupai region. This 5-day trip, which took our team of 20 on one of the most beautiful hikes in the world, included 3 days of challenging hiking and stunning views inside the Havasupai Indian Reservation.

Our team's six to eight hours of hiking each day was rewarded with some of the most spectacular waterfalls on the planet with drops ranging from 75-200 feet: Havasu Falls, Mooney Falls and Beaver Falls. The team was in awe of the vivid blue-green pools, which are the result of high calcium carbonate concentration in the water. (In fact, Havasupai means people of the blue-green waters in the local Native American language)

This was a challenging trek which required fitness and endurance: The first hiking day saw the team hike down into the Grand Canyon over 2,000 feet, taking approximately 7 hours. Day 2 was another long one, though less strenuous, and included navigating via rope chains and ladders to reach the pools below. On the final day of hiking, Day 3, we climbed UP the 2000+ feet we came down the first day. We earned our bragging rights on this demanding trail!
