Local Attractions & Activities
You may have seen numerous photographs of Horseshoe Bend, but photos just do not do this magnificent natural wonder justice. Horseshoe Bend is a 270° bend in the Colorado River called an “incised” or “entrenched meander.” The views of this beautiful curve from the 4,200-foot overlook are now legendary on social media. The hike is short (1.5-mile round trip trail), but in the summer months, the heat may make the uphill climb a little more challenging. It is strongly recommended to carry lots of water.
LAKE POWELL AND GLEN CANYON NATIONAL RECREATION AREA
The scale of the Lake Powell and Glen Canyon National Recreation Area is quite humbling. It covers 1.25 million acres, mainly in Utah but also in northern Arizona near Page. You will find endless options for water-based activities, serious backcountry hikes, scenic viewpoints, and the exploration of unique, ancient formations.
The Carl Hayden Visitor Center, located at the precipice of Glen Canyon Dam, provides visitors with a rich and in-depth history of the creation of the dam, Lake Powell, and the city of Page.
Lake Powell was created in 1963 when the Glen Canyon Dam held back the waters of the Colorado River, forming a vast blue lake surrounded by beautiful sandstone walls.
Just a 4-minute drive from the city of Page, you can immediately begin to unwind and relax as you take advantage of so many ways to enjoy the warm waters and endless sunshine of Lake Powell - boating, jet skiing, kayaking, swimming, or simply play along the shores. With little to no light pollution, stargazing at Lake Powell can be an amazing experience, particularly out on a houseboat. The lakepowell.com website has a wealth of information about adventures, dining, and accommodation.
Antelope Canyon is part of the Lake Powell Navajo Tribal Park, located 10 minutes east of Page. It is protected by the Navajo Parks and Recreation. Only authorized tour companies can take visitors to the canyon. This is mainly for the safety of visitors and to prevent vandalism.
Both Upper and Lower Antelope Canyon is, without a shadow of a doubt, the most photographed sandstone canyon in northern Arizona. More precisely, it is a slot canyon (narrow but still fairly easy to walk through) with dizzying rock formations created by the wind and water. The light enters only from the top, and at certain times of the day, it gives the sandstone a splendid color scheme.
ANTELOPE CANYON X: A Little-known Alternative
While Lower Antelope Canyon is not as crowded as Upper Antelope Canyon, there is another segment of Antelope Canyon that few people know about that is called Antelope Canyon X. This section of the canyon is located about 4 miles south of Upper Antelope Canyon, in a very remote area that tourists seldom venture to. Again, it is necessary to join an organized tour.
WATER HOLES CANYON – Secret Canyon
Distance from Page, approximately 6.6 miles. Many people call this slot canyon the best alternative to Antelope Canyon for its beauty and because it is not visited by as many tourists. Booking a tour is still required.
Just 42 miles from Page, AZ, Lee’s Ferry is the beginning of the Grand Canyon and serves as the primary launch point for Grand Canyon river trips. Mormon Pioneers established Lee’s Ferry as a place to cross the river. Lee’s Ferry is a well-known fishing and boat launching point, including for whitewater rafting trips through the Grand Canyon.
Opportunities abound for hiking, backpacking, camping, and more in and around Page, AZ and just over the border into Southern Utah. Here are just a few examples around Page:
- Page Rimview Trail 10 mi / 652 ft gain
- The Chains 1 mi / 15 ft gain
- Page Mesa Trail 13.2 mi / 800 ft gain
- Hanging Garden 1.4 mi / 24 ft gain
- Pedestal Alley 3 mi / 240 ft gain
- Glen Canyon Dam Overlook 0.11 mi / 124 ft gain
With Arizona being the ultimate escape for the thrill seeker, it is no surprise that the state has some optimal terrain for ATVing. Arizona has its fair share of mountains, gorges, plateaus, and wide-open deserts, making it practically irresistible if you love a little off-roading. Before you head out to explore all of the natural splendor the state has to offer, make sure you have all of the necessary permits, and you understand the regulations.
There are numerous opportunities for mountain biking around Page, with trails offering world-class experience and majestic views. One example is Page Rimview which loops around the mesa that the town is on with views of Lake Powell and Antelope Island. Much of the trail is sandstone (Slickrock). Loops east of town and then back into it.
HOP OVER THE BORDER TO KANAB, UTAH
Just a 70-minute drive west will bring you to Kanab, Utah, with its plethora of slot canyons ranging from roadside strolls to guided canyoneering and permit-only, highly technical channels, plus numerous hiking trails, biking trails, and OHV trails. From Kanab, it is less than an hour’s drive to Zion National Park, a 90-minute drive to Bryce Canyon National Park, and a 90-minute drive to the Grand Canyon North Rim.
