Arizona's best waterfalls

When you hear Arizona, your mind conjures images of cactus and red rock, but some of Arizona’s most beautiful attractions are it’s waterfalls.  Most Arizona waterfalls are seasonal and run during the spring snow melt and fade to just a trickle in the summer heat.  However, there are several waterfalls in the state that are fed by rivers and streams and are active year round, especially magnificent during the monsoon rains.  Unfortunately, those monsoon rains have caused flooding in the area and the falls areas have been evacuated.  So make sure you check the website for updates if you’re planning on visiting.

Here is one of the most beautiful collections of waterfalls in the state.


Havasu Falls consists of 5 waterfalls on the Havasupai Indian Reservation near Grand Canyon National Park.  It’s a little tricky to find as there are no roads leading to Supai Village which is the starting point known as “Waterfall Row”  The only way to get to the village is on foot or by mule on the Havasu Trail.  Camping is available north of the village at Havasu Campground. 

Located about 350 miles northwest of Phoenix. Take Interstate 40 west from Flagstaff to exit 123 in Seligman.  Follow old Rte 66 northwest for 33 miles to Indian Route 18 (between mileposts 110 & 111).  Follow Rte 18 for 63 miles to the trailhead at Hualapai Hilltop…Note…the last services are in Seligman.
