This vast, state-sized recreation area was created upon completion of the Glen Canyon Dam, which backs up manmade Lake Powell for 186 miles. Plenty of water-related recreational opportunities attract thousands of visitors. This is an impressive area of hidden canyons, coves and small inlets, with towering red cliffs enclosing the lake shore. Rainbow Bridge National Monument, a small enclave surrounded on all four sides by the Glen Canyon Recreation Area, must be included among the greatest of all natural wonders of the world. That it remains standing seems impossible. This is an area with few roads, but some of the best sights are accessible to drivers. However, a boat trip is necessary to truly appreciate the beauty of this rugged country. This eTrail explains in detail how to tour the park. In addition to a park map the details include driving tours, outdoor recreation, accommodations, campgrounds, dining, and more.
