Downstream of Glen Canyon Dam
near Page, about 2 miles of the eastern rim of Glen Canyon is reachable by short cross country walks from US 89, and by the popular Horseshoe Bend Trail
. The west rim is much more remote, but a network of dirt tracks criss-cross the sandy flats bordering the river canyon, and an interesting hike, starting along one such track, is down the small tributary of Ferry Swale Canyon
, which meets the Colorado after a walk of 4.6 miles. About 2 miles of the river canyon are in view from the lower end.
