Best Waterfall Getaways in North America

12 April 2016 @ 2:56 PM  /


Thinking of getting away this summer? We’ve narrowed down our two favorite waterfalls in North America that won’t disappoint. With so many places to explore and discover, it was a hard decision, but we believe both of these settings are perfect for a relaxing summer getaway. 

Havasu Falls


Havasu is known for its colorful landscape, natural pools, and vivid blue green water. Hidden in the Grand Canyon, Havasu Falls is popular amongst hikers and photographers. It’s part of the Havasupai American Indian Reservation and the name Havasupai means “people of the blue-green water”. The falls require a 10-mile hike in either direction, but once you arrive, you will understand why Havasu Falls is one of the most popular natural attractions on the planet. The hike starts at Hualapai Hilltop, which is a hundred miles from civilization. Make sure you are well equipped before you get there and be prepared to be amazed!

Waimoku Falls


This towering 400 ft. high waterfall will leave you in awe once you witness its magnitude. Located in Maui, Hawaii, the Waimoku falls are a 2-mile hike on the Pipiwai Trail from Haleakala National Park up to the base of the falls. On the hike you’ll experience several other waterfalls and a scenic walkway through a thick dark bamboo forest that you’ll never forget. The Waimoku Falls are a popular destination for tourists, but the experience can be life changing. Waimoku Falls contains trails that can be muddy and moderately difficult so remember to plan ahead and take the appropriate gear.

These are only a few amazing places to explore this summer, with tons more to choose from. If you are considering planning an outdoor trip, don’t forget to pack your Garmin handheld GPS device so you can locate your position quickly and precisely to maintain your location even in heavy cover. Whether you’re in deep woods or near tall buildings and trees, you can count on your Garmin GPS to help you find your way when you need it the most.
