Antelope Canyon

Many wonderful natural formations often appear hidden from view. Antelope Canyon, located east of Page, remains one of the more popular northern Arizona attractions for photographers and nature-lovers. This beautiful quarter-mile-long canyon was created from wind and water, over thousands of years. A young Navajo girl first discovered this magnificent canyon in 1931.

The canyon reaches a depth of 130 feet and is accessible by hiking along a three-and-a-half mile wash. Photographers love to capture the colors from the sunlight gleaming into this incredible, natural canyon. Since Antelope Canyon is on the Navajo Reservation, visitors wanting to see it, must travel with a licensed tour guide. Stay close to the canyon and beautiful Lake Powell on your next trek through northern AZ.

Apache Trail

Wind along the Apache Trail, near Apache Junction, Arizona and admire the amazing views of the Superstition Mountains and Tonto National Forest. As you hike along this 6.8 mile trail, you'll pass by Lost Dutchman State Park, Canyon Lake and Apache Lake before ending at Lake Roosevelt.

The Trail was finished in 1905 along with the completion of the Roosevelt Dam. Enjoy easy access to the trail near the Superstition Mountain Museum, the Goldfield Ghost Town, Superstition Springs Mall and a variety of restaurants. Enjoy your time in Central Arizona.
