Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The Colorado River impounded behind Glen Canyon Dam near Page, Arizona, forms Lake Powell, which is more than 570 feet deep when filled to capacity. The lake follows the flooded river gorge for 180 miles with an ever-changing shoreline of nearly 2,000 miles.

The lake covers more than 160,000 surface-acres when full. Two inundated rivers, the San Juan and Escalante, branch off the Colorado River and compose major portions of the reservoir. Key Species: Smallmouth bass, striped bass, largemouth bass, bluegill, green sunfish, black crappie, walleye, channel catfish, bullhead catfish, and northern pike."
