Page Things to Do

  • The agony and the ecstasy: Lower...

    Hiking slot canyons are one my favorite things to do in the Southwest so this one was on the Bucket List: check. Unfortunately, the two in the Page area are on everyone else’s list too, and probably the only slots most tourists will ever see. They are also the most-visited of this sort of canyon in the U.S., and you’ve probably seen a million shots...

  • The Toadstools

    We’d driven into Utah to hike Wire Pass and some of Buckskin Gulch in Paria/Vermillion Cliffs but deep mud and water in the Gulch left us looking for an alternative adventure. Unfortunately, it was 100 degrees and the worst time of the day to start anything overly ambitious so we chose this little hike that was on the way back to Page and promised...

  • Powell Museum and Visitor Information...

    Two reasons to go here:A. Friendly staff knowledgable about all things PageB. A little ramble through some area historyWe’d stopped in to check on road/canyon conditions for a particular trail, and walked away with a comprehensive map of the Southwest that ANYONE interested in routes less traveled should get their paws on. That map had all the tiny...

  • Crazy good

    The restaurant with the funny name checked all the boxes and then some: outdoor patio; terrific waitstaff; upbeat atmosphere, good food; earlybird specials. They also cheerfully welcomed a couple of famished hikers in very casual attire without a bat of the eye. Page being a destination for a lot of boaters and desert adventurers, they’re probably...

  • Get your giddyup on

    We’d stopped in here for a beer after doing Antelope ‘cuz our motel room wasn’t ready yet. The waitstaff was cheerful, and the aroma of roasting beasties had us drooling like dogs (yes, we’re carnivores) so we walked down here for supper too. It’s a picnic-table and paper-plate sort of place with a huge covered patio and bands at night. Napkins are...

  • Best food in Page

    The Dam Bar And Grill was great if you are looking for a nice clean good dining experience.I ate there last week and had a hamburger. There were a lot of other types of food on the menu to choose from like steak too.The food was excellent. The service was great. The atmosphere was above average too. It is about 10 years old so it is fairly new and...

  • Quality Inn Karaoke Bar

    All of the usual characters were in attendance.... the crusty old guy with the terrible voice, the hot drunk chicks who want to dance, the gay guy who the chicks love... and some of the not-so familiar attendees: such as the 2 and 4 year olds who together sand that Cheryl Crowe-Kid Rock Song. It was a good time and the people were very friendly.

  • Head Downtown

    Go anywhere downtown and there will be several spots to stop and eat and/or drink.Just get on Lake Powell Blvd and you will be fine. Page has a population of 6,800 people so your choices are somewhat limited. Most places are casual - call ahead if you want to verify a dress code. At the Dam Bar & Grille you can come as you are.

  • Beer and Live Music

    On a mid-week evening in late April this was the place where it was all happening. The local country band had them jiving on the dance floor, the dining areas were heaving, the smoking area a total fug. OK this is obviously geared for us tourists with its logpole cladding on the outside walls and the stetson-wearing barmaid, bottle-opener holstered...

    Big O Tires - Page, AZWhen I had my flat tire west of Marble Canyon I went to WalMart to have my tire fixed. They said the tire was ruined and I needed to buy another tire for my rented Jeep Liberty.Guess what? They don't have very many tires at the Page WalMart.

    As soon you cross the border between Utah and Arizona, you encounter the beginning of the Navajo Stalls. Even though you will have been driving through Navajo Reservation land for miles and miles, it's only in Arizona where this proliferation seems to take place. They range from raggedy little "lean tos" to places resembling flea markets. Sometimes...

Page Warnings and Dangers

  • Flash floods!

    Always check the forecast when planning any activity in and around Page slot canyons. Even the lightest of rain can be devastating. Also, it may not rain where you are but up stream and will have the same, if not worse effect. Here is information as an example where 11 tourist died in a flash flood outside...

  • Cryptobiotic Soil

    This is a ground cover in the desert areas that allows plants to grow, It contains algae, fungi, moss, lichens that all make up a sort of plant food for plants. It also secures to ground from erosion. So the warning is not to step off trails, and especially on this type soil

  • Don't forget the sunscreen

    I know, everyone tells you to wear sunscreen in the summer, but seriously! Don't forget your sunscreen! I was out from 8:30-10:20 in May and by the time I got back inside, I had a nice, red glow. Ouch! Even when you think it's too early or late in the day, put it on anyway. A lot of people wear wide-brimmed hats out here, too.

Page What to Pack

  • It's the desert

    make sure you know what to bring to get the dust out of your lenses in the foeld and how to use it. I've seen several people using wet gear in the dust, scratching the surface of lenses, or changing lenses in the open desert: bring a bag to do that in. Sunscreen and a hat :-)

    more
  • Dress for the occasion.

    Cowboy boots or nice hiking boots if your going to be doing some hiking off the beaten path, you never know when you might come across a rattlersnake. Also a cowboy hat and maybe a rope you'll never know you just might cross path with a real Native American Indian (Navajo) and he would invite you to come and help with the cattle round up.

  • Sun, Sun, and more Sun!!!

  • Vermilion Cliffs-Secluded Adventure

    This huge land area of 45-50 miles in all directions has few roads, and none paved going through it. It is 293,000 acres; or 457 square miles. That is big. The cliffs that rise straight up to 3,000 feet, are a long expansive stretch of red/white cliff buttes that ring the south end on Hwy 89A. The north edge is off Hwy 89 that goes between Page and...

  • Vermilion Cliffs-Jacob & Rachael Pools

    I read about these pools, and decided to try and find them for a drive in, and hike the rest of the way to get to them. They are located close to a marker and plaques designating the exploration of Escalante Dominguez here in 1776. Turn between mile marker 557/558 onto a dirt/clay/sand road on the north side. The road is said to be 2 miles and then...

  • Condors Are Out There

    You could spend a lot of time looking for condors around the area. There are not that many yet, and the population will probably be limited due to the sparse pickings to eat. One area is to the west edge of Vermilion Cliffs; about 90 miles form Page. Another is to look around Navajo bridge. Sometimes they perch on the bridge and look into the river...

    Disposing of human waste....fun times, lol OK, not anyones favorite subject, but it is especially important when backpacking in the slot canyons around the Page area. You are required to pack out your waste. The best way I've found to do this is cheap and odorless.Go to your local hardware and purchase a 2-3 foot section of 2 and 1/2 inch PVC pipe...

  • Paria Canyon - a great adventure

    The Paria is about 45 minutes outside of Page. There are two ways that are popular to backpack the Paria. If you enter from the Rangers station, the total hike is 37 miles one way. I have always done the Paria from Buckskin Gulch which cuts out about 7 miles of the Paria, but adds 12 miles of Buckskin Gulch. I moved too fast when doing this. It...

  • Buckskin Gulch - intense slot canyon

    Buckskin Gulch is about 45 minute to an hour west of Page on the Utah/Arizona border. You do have to travel down a dirt road to access the trailhead. There is an area to camp at the trailhead and many people hiking the Paria River will opt to enter at Buckskin for a more intense experience.I've done this in June and July, both times had plenty of...

    Ask what they are. These are actual balls that are created over some unbelievable period of time, and found in the rock face, mostly on slick rock. The balls are formed form sand blowing/rolling along the rock over millenium, and accumulating, or attaching to iron in the rocks. That iron grabs the sand and it continues to blow. What a feat of...
