Hiking to Wiregrass Canyon Arch, Lake Powell

Wiregrass Canyon is one of many drainages that flow into Lake Powell, and offers a fun moderate hike. If you had a full day, you could reach the shore of Lake Powell, but most people only hike to the arch and back in just a few hours. Wiregrass Canyon Arch isn't the only attraction - tall, white canyon walls with two sections of light scrambling make this enjoyable for the whole family. The first 1/2 mile winds through a dry wash, before entering the canyon, where the fun begins.

Hiking to Turtlehead Peak, Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area

Turtlehead Peak (6, 323 ft) is located in Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area, and one of the most popular hikes in the park. To reach the trailhead (TH) you must have a timed entry reservation for Red Rocks (get that here), and start hiking early to beat to people all the people and weather. Turtlehead Peak offers amazing views of the entire area, and on a clear day you can even see the Las Vegas Strip!
