The hike to Tapestry Wall is accessed by the waters of Lake Powell. The hike allows for excellent views north to Henry Mountains and of Lake Powell. The hike is approximately one hour each way. You will cross several huge dry pools in a gully when starting out.

When the water is down more than ~50', the access for the hike is much further downstream. Cairns lead across the slickrock northerly to a route through the cliffy pink Entrada layers to the top of Ticaboo Mesa. This is 0.6 miles south of the high point. Watch your GPS to take note for how to return.
