View from Swamp Canyon overlook, looking southeast.
Swamp Canyon appears relatively small and sheltered from the overlook, bounded on both sides by fins and hoodoos. This size allows the viewer to develop a more intimate connection with the landscape than some of the grander viewpoints may provide. From the Swamp Canyon overlook, hikers can descend to either side of the prominence on a trail that will connect with the Under-The-Rim Trail and then return on the other side, making a loop. Though a Moderate Hike, this trail can be difficult if not prepared. Please carry plenty of water and other appropriate items to aid you in your hike.
