To hike in Havasu, you must have reservations with the Havasupai Tribe.

I know one needs a reservation to hike, I am asking about hiking upstream from Supai to upper Havasu and Cataract canyon? The main trail in comes from Haulipai Hilltop, meeting Havasu Canyon just near Supai the Indian Village.

Supai village, located within Havasu Canyon, a large tributary on the south side of the Colorado River, is not accessible by road. The Havasupai Tribe administers the land, which lies outside the boundary and jurisdiction of Grand Canyon National Park.

The trail to Supai begins at Hualapai Hilltop, 191 miles/308 km from Grand Canyon Village or 66 miles/106 km from Peach Springs, Arizona. Peach Springs has the nearest services – gas, food, and water. No services are available at Hualapai Hilltop.

More information Supai and Havasu Canyon is available on nps.gov.

Havasu Creek is often reported as one of the most beautiful bodies of water in the American Southwest.  In fact, the name of the local Havasupai means: "people of the blue-green waters" taken from the crystal clear waters of the creek. 

The creek heads from Supai, AZ and connects at the Havasu rapids of the Colorado River.  Check out this site (mostly on the waterfalls along the route) for more information

Have a great trip!

You must absolutely follow highway 87 (Needles Highway) to Mt. Rushmore.  Out of Hot Springs, drive about 11.5 miles North on 385 , until you get to 87 North.  It will be easy to follow from here to Rushmore.

This road is one of my favorites that I have driven in South Dakota.  It winds through the mountains on narrow roads, but driving slowly and stopping often, you will be able to stop at multiple lookouts and see the monument from afar.  There are also tunnels through sheer rock faces, and all together a fantastic drive!

The white you see is probably silica.  The thermal features pass through rhyolite which is most likely the source of the silica.
