We took an awesome hike on the Beehive trail, which is located half a mile from the visitor center at Glen Canyon Dam. You take a right out of the parking lot and then the first left is where the parking for the trail is located. The park ranger suggested doing this hike as it was an alternative to The Wave since that is so limited. It was a beautiful 2 mile round-trip hike. Make sure you take the side trail to the scenic lookout as well. Stunning views from the top! This was one of our favorite hikes while staying in Page.

The staff member at the entrance was nice and gave a brief, but detailed, explanation of where to park, hike time in and out, etc…

Ample parking.

The canyon is breathtaking, very beautiful.

The area itself is clean and well marked.

There are sights you want to behold. But there are so many places that want to skim money off you, it borders on ridiculousness.

A must do in the area, great addition if you are doing a Lower Antelope tour. Fantastic views and rock hiking. The path is marked by rocks, quite impressive. An easy dirt road and park at the campground. Starts on the left, look for markers.

There’s no one here and she wanted to charge us 30 bucks. We had an old card that expired so she was nice enough to change it out and give it to us military. We will be able to use it in the future. I wondered why I would pay 30 bucks to drive through someplace in the middle of winter and just take a few pictures, so I am thankful she gave us the card for free.

Water is beautiful and the raft ride definitely gives a different perspective of the canyon. Smooth water so easy raft ride.

Several great views. We visited the Glen Canyon Dam. Interesting. The short hike to the Hanging Garden was worth. An oasis in the middle of a desert area. The water level was low. Interesting to see the difference between the water line from a flood in the 1980's and the current water level.
