Spend time in the recreational area of the dam and grab a bite to eat before you go exploring.
From Escalante, UT, to the western shore of Lake Powell, Hole-in-the-Rock gets its name from the narrow trails pioneers dug to cross the Colorado River. Blasting powder and good old-fashioned pickaxes created the passages in six weeks, and you can follow their progress yourself with a bit of a hike to the area. Be aware that this area is for the fit and healthy, and you should be very careful if you choose to climb through the narrow passage. Even so, it is worth the experience. The gorgeous red rock canyon itself is a reminder of the tough men and women that settled here.
The Burr Trail is a scenic backway that trails from Bullfrog Marina, passes the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument, Capitol Reef National Park, and beyond. The vistas you will view of the Henry Mountains, the slot canyons you can visit on foot, and the campgrounds you can enjoy will create unforgettable moments for you and your friends and family. You will fall in love with the road, as it is a trail that many travelers choose to explore year after year.
In September of 1883, a man named Cass Hite arrived in Glen Canyon to find gold on the edges of the Colorado River. He found it, and a gold rush followed. The history of the area named after the man alone is enough to make anyone excited to visit! At the north end of Lake Powell, explore the Colorado River through the gravel trails. Hike past the rocks that the Navajo and Anasazi tribes once called home. Whether you are a history buff or not, you will love the beauty that Hite and the surrounding bluffs have to offer.
What kinds of activities can I plan for when renting a Jeep?
Almost anything. Take your hiking gear and explore the trails, secure kayaks to the roof and traverse the Colorado River’s many water-cut canyons, or simply take a drive to the most photogenic spots around Lake Powell. You will be surprised at how far a four-by-four Jeep can take you.
When is the best time to come to Lake Powell to avoid the crowds?
Depending on the kinds of exploration you wish to experience, there are locations you can visit all year round. Early summer and early fall are excellent times to enter the water and explore the canyons without the rush. Holidays and weekends are the busiest times; weekdays in between holidays are fantastic times to explore without many people around. Be aware, however, that some trails close at certain times of the year, so prepare accordingly.
How much equipment should I take?
The kinds of equipment you should take depends on your planned activities. First, bring a basic first aid kit. If you plan on hiking, make sure to bring durable hiking shoes and proper clothes for the warm weather. Take a cooler filled with snacks and food for breakfast and lunch, and always remember to stock up on water (about half a liter of water per person per hour on strenuous hikes). And be sure to bring a camera or cell phone with you to remember every moment in this incredible vacation spot.
