West Canyon off of Lake Powell is beautiful slot canyon, perfect for hikers wishing for a leisurely, scenic day trip. Hikers can go as far back and for however long they desire. You will encounter several pools, along with several hidden waterfalls.

West Canyon can be accessed from Buoy 25 at Lake Powell. It is best accessed from Wahweap or Antelope Point marina. You can boat as far as 6 miles into the canyon before securely docking your boat for a hike, but the actual distance you boat in depends on current water levels.
