The hike to Pedestal Alley is perfect for hikers of all skill levels wishing to experience some desert scenery. The 3 mile round trip hike crosses washes, along with sandy terrain and rocks. Pedestal Alley is in Glen Canyon National Recreation Area.

Although this is a relatively short hike, the desert conditions are harsh. Make sure you are properly prepared, hydrated, and protected from the sun before starting out.

Directions: From the Bullfrog Visitor Center, take Highway 276 north approximately 4.4 miles (7 km) to the marked junction with the Burr Trail. Turn left onto the Burr Trail and go about 4.8 miles (7.7 km) to the Pedestal Alley parking area. The trailhead is across the road from the parking area.
