This hike is described in Tyler Williams book CANYONEERING ARIZONA.
We chose to start this hike at the trailhead from the end of FS # 142E.
Very steep descent to the canyon bottom , not really much of a trail.
At the creek , we headed upstream. There are some footpaths along the
creek, but we decided to make our way thru the water . Boulder hopping
and wading in ankle to waist deep water ... :) This part of the canyon
is so amazing... flowers, lush greenery, steep canyon walls . WOW it
was breathtaking ! Pictures could never show the beauty here.
Some pretty cool petroglyphs on river right just upstream from Tramway
I came one step short of stepping on a big coiled up black snake :o
EEEK that was very scary!
The hike back up was a bit treacherous, raining , very very slippery.
Willow Valley is upstream 3 miles from the entry point for this hike.

Havasu Canyon Trail - Sep 15 2014
I was watching the helicopter make multi-drops of people and supplies when, at one point, a stray horse wandered into the landing field (the gate was open). The guys unloading the supplies chased it around the field until it went back out the gate. Then as it was running up the main drag, another resident must have thought it got loose so he shooed it back into another open gate and back into the field. So now these guys are chasing it around the field again but this time they start pelting it with rocks. The horse was panicking and didn't know where to go. Rocks were being hurled at it from all directions. He ended up falling down after a really hard rock hit and it looked like he broke...
