Carved over hundreds of centuries by the powerful Colorado River, Glen Canyon now is the frame for sparkling dam-fed Lake Powell, a major boating and houseboating destination within easy reach of land-based hiking trails.
Brown Canyon Trail leads into a scenic little canyon with good views and high-desert vegetation. A spur trail, the Pomona Mine Trail, leads to the site of an old tungsten mine.
