Reviews

Our hotel was right here, so we walked over one night and were not disappointed. Crazy sunset views without a crowd. Easy walk down some stairs and plenty of space to wander around.

Come at sunset for incredible colors of Glen Canyon and the dam. Its a fairly easy trip to the overlook from the parking lot.
