Hikers 8-mile roundtrip effort is rewarded by a 40 foot waterfall. Although the elevation gain is minimal, pay close attention to trail markers so you don't lose your way.

The hike through Navajo Canyon to Chaol Falls is a pleasant, scenic, secluded desert hike just outside of Lake Powell, Utah. The trail goes through a long side canyon with picturesque walls. Navajo Canyon is the longest side canyon on Lake Powell that is not a river arm. It is a narrow riverine canyon upstream from Antelope Point marina. The mouth is near Buoy 10 in AZ.

You will be able to hear the falls in the narrow canyon about a quarter mile before they come into view. When it looks like it's time to swim, step back and look for a sandy trail on the left hand side leading up to the next terrace. Just before you arrive at the falls, look in the hard white rock layer for dinosaur tracks. Pictures of deer and desert bighorn sheep carved into the walls are indicative of the wildlife that were present when the Anasazi were living in the Navajo Canyon region.
