Glen Canyon National Recreation Area

Established in 1972, Glen Canyon National Recreation Area encompasses over 1.2 million acres of sagebrush covered mesas, red rock sandstone, buttes, spires, numerous deep canyons, and Lake Powell.

Having an astounding shoreline of over 1,900 miles, Lake Powell is one of the most scenic lakes in the world. Its rugged, unspoiled terrain provides ample opportunities to boat, kayak, picnic, camp, hike and explore the ever present solitude.

One of the largest natural bridges in the world, Rainbow Natural Bridge, is located at northwest base of Navajo Mountain and a worth while adventure for Lake Powell visitors.
