Tip here is to stop first at the Big Water Visitor Center for directions to reach the hoodoos. We did not do this, relying instead on rather vague directions from a trustworthy internet site. While we had a fun walk up the dry creekbed and...More

The rock formations here are outstanding! It is well wort the 20mile drive from Glenn Canyon Dam. There are signs along the road where to park. Beware, there is no shade or water and be prepared for at least a one mile walk.

We hiked to the Towers of Silence on Sept. 19, 2015. The hike is in the Wahweap Creek bed and is a bit over 9 miles. The creek appears to run all year, so you end up crossing over the water many times. The hike...More
