Halls Crossing, Glen Canyon National Recreation Area
PreviousSlickrock bordering Lake Powell, south of Halls CrossingNext

Halls Crossing on the south shore of Lake Powell has similar facilities to Bullfrog directly opposite, including a marina, campground, ranger station and ferry terminal. To the north, the lake is wide, extending to two broad inlets (Halls Creek Bay and Bullfrog Bay), but to the south, the Colorado River was enclosed in a deep, vertical-walled canyon, so the lake is much narrower, and still cliff-bound. This section is viewable by short walks over sandy desert, starting about a mile south of the end of the approach road, highway 276. Downstream of here begins the most inaccessible of the lake, and the original course of the river is not easily viewable until the vicinity of Page, 55 miles southwest.
