The village of Supai has a café, grocery store, lodge, and a small museum. It’s a great place to stop for lunch and a break. It’s also the only town that carries out mail by mule so you can send yourself a postcard via mule!
A couple of the tents on the trip were purchased from Total MissFIT. The Kelty Crestone 2 and the Sierra Designs LT Strike 2. Both got great reviews - they're both extremely light and the SD LT Strike 2 was a hit since it has two entrances!
From the campground it’s only a 0.5 mile hike to Mooney Falls and another 3 miles from Mooney Falls to Beaver Falls. You’ll first view Mooney Falls from the top, and then you’ll descend down into it using a few chains and ladder on the way. The photos of the scenery will speak for themselves…
The descent to Mooney Falls…
MissFITs at rest….
Thank you for the photos, Emily.
You can find information about the permit process here: BLM Permit Process/Lottery
The hike to the Wave is 2.9 miles. With your permit you'll get a map that shows you where to go. It’s easy to get lost going there since there's no track but the map has photos that show you what to look for and in which direction to go. The first part of the hike is through a wash and then on a sandy trail in a green brush field. Eventually you'll hike over a ridge and the scenery changes to beautiful rock formations.
