Johnson Canyon Cruise Professional Review and Guide
"The Johnson Canyon Cruise is a 50.8-mile out-and-back course. The elevations range from 4,985 feet in Kanab to 5,950 feet at the turnaround. The ride begins at the Grand Staircase- Escalante National Monument (GSENM) Visitor Center.
Kanab (population 3,782 in 2008) is the seat of Kane County, located in a rugged region of southern Utah. Kanab is bordered by the Vermilion Cliffs on the north, the Kaibab Plateau and Shinarump Cliffs on the south, the Moquith Mountains and
several canyons on the west, and, prior to the damming that formed Lake Powell, the Colorado River on the east. The region is so rugged that, in fact, it was one of the last areas of the continental United States to be mapped."
