Delivery Time

The Mule trains carry baggage brought in from Hilltop reach their destination (Camp) between 1 pm - 3 pm. The Mule trains carrying baggage taken from the campgrounds reach their destination (Hilltop) between 10 am - 12 pm.

Since the horses are owned by individual tribal packers, the Camping Enterprise cannot always guarantee a horse will be available, so be sure to confirm your horse reservations a day before traveling to Hilltop! If no horse is available, your money will be refunded.

Visitors trying to reserve horses should specify both their arrival and departure dates. Horses usually leave Hualapai Hilltop around 10 am and the campgrounds about 7 am April 1 to October 31 - 8 am, the rest of the year. Packers will wait until 12 noon at Hualapai Hilltop for people who may be unavoidably delayed. Pack horses carry no more than one-hundred and thirty pounds per animal.

Riders may carry with them a camera, canteen, and items need on the trail only. Because the trail is hazardous, the Havasupai Camping Enterprise cannot assume responsibility for damage to equipment carried on pack animals.Those bringing their own horses pay a $20 trail fee and must provide their own feed.
