Havasu Creek, Arizona, US
Falls to Colorado River
||II-III(V+) (for normal flows)
Havasu is an odd little side trib. of the Colorado. This creek is famous for the waterfalls up near
the top of the run. As with Tapeats Creek you need a Grand Canyon permit to run Havasu Creek. There
are two options for the run but only one is really a viable option for most boaters. The average
boater just carries up the canyon from the Colorado and huffs it with their boat as far upstream as
they wish. Really lucky boaters might be able to put in upstream at the resort and boat down. You
need permission from the Indians to do this.
The creek has some of the most beautiful azure water and travertine waterfalls in world. The rapids
are serious bone crunching drops or easy class I+ shoals.
Havasu is the steepest stuff in the Grand Canyon area.
