Hike to Beaver Falls
The hike to Beaver Falls is about 3 miles from the foot of Mooney Falls. It's a tough hike because there are several stream crossings and several places where the trail, if it can be called that, disappears. You have the choice of either climbing up the bank and back down, or wading downstream until the trail resumes. We found wading preferrable in most such places. By being careful you can find places shallow enough so the water is never much above your knees. When deciding on this hike, be aware that you have already seen the best falls by the time you get to Mooney since Beaver is really a set of smaller falls. Also, note that getting to the pool below Beaver requires climbing high above the falls on the right side, descending back to the creek, then working your way back upstream to the foot of the falls. As most hikers, we stopped at the top. The only reasons to go below Beaver is to continue on down to the Colorado, or to fish. The Reservation ends at Beaver, so fishing is allowed and is repoted to be good as you get near the Colorado.
