Havasu Falls Maps and Directions

Havasu Falls Directions and Area Maps

Getting to the Havasu Falls trailhead (called Hualupai Hilltop) can be confusing and your cell phone won’t work on most of the Havasupai Reservation. Plan ahead and use the Guru’s directions and driving tips to plan your Havasu adventure!

Indian Road 18 is about 60 miles long. It is a maintained dirt road and passenger vehicles can usually travel safely along it. During the summer monsoon thunderstorm season (mid-June through mid-September) though, the road can experience periodic flooding and the dirt will turn into slippery mud. If road conditions aren’t good, it is not recommended to drive down Indian Road 18. Signs on many Havasupai Indian Reservation roads, including Indian Road 18, state that you may not be in the area without a valid permit. A valid campground or Lodge reservation serves as your permit and is all that you need to enter the Reservation and drive to the trailhead. Read the guide below for detailed directions and drive times to Havasupai, or check out our interactive Havasu Falls map to see all Havasupai and nearby destinations and attractions!
