Glen Canyon National Recreation Area: Explorer Canyon

UT

Star Star Star Star Star

Distance: 3.4 miles


Venture into the lost world of the ancient Fremont people where smoke-stained grottos and some of the finest petroglyphs around highlight this 4-mile journey.
  • Explorer Canyon
  • Fremont Petroglyphs

TO TRAILHEAD: Explorer is 12 miles up the Escalante from Lake Powell by boat or kayak. Tie up where you beach, then walk upstream, crossing small waterfalls and .5 mile of resurfaced canyon. At the high-water mark, take the faint trail on the north side of the canyon. Allow 3 to 4 hours for the 4-mile round trip.
