Local Area Attractions Near Seligman / Route 66 KOA Journey
The town of Seligman is known as "The Birthplace of Historic Route 66" in Arizona, a wonderful, centrally located place to use as base camp for many day trip adventures!
Located on the south side of the Colorado River Havasupai Falls is one of the most remote and beautiful corners of the Grand Canyon and is noted for its four stunning blue-green waterfalls. Accessible only by foot, horseback or pre-arranged helicopter service, the trail from Hualapai Hilltop descends at a moderate grade for the first 1.5 miles into Hualapai Canyon and then levels off slightly for the remaining 6.5 miles to Supai Village.
The famous site of the canyon begins 1.5 miles downstream from Supai where four waterfalls plunge over cliffs of Redwall limestone in a space of two miles. The first is 72 feet high, Navajo Falls, and then Havasu Falls which drops 100 feet into a beautiful turquoise colored pool rimmed by travertine deposits… a perfect spot for swimming. The third is Mooney falls, 196 foot beautiful pool of water. Lastly two miles down is Beaver Falls. For information call Havasupai Tourist Enterprises at (928) 448-2731.
