Winter (December, January, February):
The Havasupai Waterfalls are closed during winter, as is the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. So Havasu Falls trips, Thunder River and Deer Creek Falls are not options during these months. If you go, bring lots of layers and extra wool socks!
Spring (March, April, May):
Spring is arguably the best time to backpack into Clear Creek and Cheyava Falls, since they will be flowing! Spring is an excellent time of year to visit Havasu Falls. It’s prime time for hiking and swimming. Bring that swimsuit, and a few extra layers for cold mornings.
Summer (June, July, August):
Summer is hot, hot hot. Start your hikes early. Once you’re at the falls it’s paradisal. The water is 70 degrees year round, which is perfect when it’s 100 degrees outside the water! Exercise caution if you’re going in July and August, since that is monsoon season. Bring less clothing and more sunscreen!
Autumn (September, October, November):
Autumn is great for all waterfall trips, including Havasu Falls. Layer up for cold nights and mornings. Beanies and gloves are recommended.
