The view during the ride is stellar, offering a panorama of water, rock formations, and mountains. To the north is Lake Powell, stretching off into the horizon. The large island directly offshore is Antelope Island. Across the water, rising out of the lake, is Castle Rock. To the east rise the massive mountains of the Navajo Nation. The largest mountain in the distance is aptly named Navajo Mountain. A large, constant flume of rising steam comes from the Navajo Generating Station. Visible from about half the Rimview Trail and all of Page, the generating station is the largest coal-powered electric generating station in Arizona. It’s about five miles southeast of Page on the Navajo Reservation. To the south is the Colorado Plateau, stretching as far as the eyes can see. In fact, most of the land seen from here belongs to the Navajo Nation. To the west are the Vermilion Cliffs—known for their distinctive red-purple hue. Major Powell originally called them the “Passion Cliffs,” probably for their color but possibly for the role these cliffs also played in the area’s Mormon polygamist history. Trail Surface: Singletrack.
