From the village of Supai, hike about 1.5 miles down the trail towards Havasu Falls and the campground, and you will come across impressive Navajo Falls. Havasu Creek splits and then joins back together again, with part of the creek forming Navajo Falls. From the trail, you can only see the upper part of the waterfall. The rest is obscured by trees and brush. A spur trail leads down to the base of the waterfall. However, there is no view of the waterfall here either, as it is still obscured. I had to (carefully) wade and log-hop across the creek, and even then, I could not really see the waterfall until I waded into the middle of the creek right in front of the waterfall. It is one of the more interesting things I have had to do to get a picture of a waterfall, taking the picture while standing in the middle of a creek.
There is a nice pool here for swimming, but you will not want to spend a lot of time here. Havasu Falls is just around the corner, and that one is much more impressive.
Note: As of 2008 this waterfall no longer exists. A massive flood destroyed the waterfall, permanently diverting the course of the creek around the location. In its place, two new waterfalls were formed (New Navajo Falls and Rock Falls). For info on these waterfalls, see the havasupaitribe.com website.
