5 Things to Do in Page, Arizona

This past winter during our Arizona road trip we were fortunate to be able to visit Page, Arizona for two days. During our time there we experienced some amazing natural and man made wonders. Here are our favorite activities from our time there:

1: Visit the Lower Antelope Canyon

The Lower Antelope Canyon lies on Navajo Tribal lands and you can only visit them with a tour guide. We explored them with Dixie Ellis Tours. Since we visited in the winter we had the place practically to ourselves! Our guide, Kendrick, helped us with our cameras to make sure we got the best pictures we could. Read all about our visit here.

 

2: Visit the Upper Antelope Canyon

Similar to the Lower Antelope Canyon, the Upper Antelope Canyon is also on Navajo lands and requires a tour guide, we visited with Antelope Canyon Tours. With our guide, Cindy, we piled into a covered truck bed for our 6 mile ride to the canyon entrance. The Upper Antelope canyon was wider and deeper than the lower canyon, but also more crowded.

3: Visit Horseshoe Bend

Just minutes down the road from Page on Route 89, you’ll find a small parking lot for Horseshoe Bend. After a short half mile hike, you’ll find yourself on the edge of a cliff looking 1000 ft down with a beautiful view of the Colorado River as it winds through the canyon below. For more information check out our post here.

4: See the Glen Canyon Dam

Just off of Scenic View Drive, there is a car park for a view of the giant Glen Canyon Dam. Walk down a rocky path to see the second tallest concrete dam in the United States standing at 710 feet tall.

5: Hike the Hanging Garden Trail

Right next to the Glen Canyon Dam is a small dirt road that leads to a parking lot for the Hanging Garden Trail. The trail is a mile round trip through red rock scenery. At the end of the trail is a small hanging garden with hundreds of vines extending down the rock ledge.

 

 

While this is in no way a complete list of things to do in Page, Arizona, these were some of our favorites. What was your favorite thing to do in Page?
