Whether you're just looking for a quick walk, a day hike, or a multi-day backpack trip, Glen Canyon has something to offer.

The hikes listed here are only the beginning. If you are out camping on the shores of Lake Powell or anywhere in the backcountry you are welcome to explore the many side canyons, slickrock hills, and passageways through washes into slot canyons or hanging gardens. Just stay safe.

Follow these links if you're interested in hiking in the Escalante (pdf file 237KB) area or the Orange Cliffs.


NOTE: There are no maintained trails in Glen Canyon National Recreation Area. All trails listed here are suggested walks. Hike at your own caution.
