The Waterfalls of Havasu Canyon

New Navajo Falls

Named for Havasupai Chief Navajo, this is the first waterfall you will encounter about a mile from the village, and less than half that distance to Havasu Falls and the campground. The original Navajo Falls was removed by a huge flash flood in 2008 that changed the landscape of the Havasu Canyon. On the left side of the main trail a side trail cuts back down to the creek so keep your eyes peeled if you want to get to the base of the waterfall and go for a swim. Most people never see the base of the waterfall, and they are definitely missing out.
