The stretch of river from below the dam to Lees Ferry provides a unique change of pace from the still waters of Lake Powell. Technically, Glen Canyon is buried below Lake Powell. Nowadays this is the closest you will get to actually being in Glen Canyon.
The clear cold water flows from Lake Powell into the Colorado River at a varied rate, depending on the dam release schedule. You may have an idyllic float down the canyon at lower flows or a fast run back to Lees Ferry.
The Colorado River at Glen Canyon Dam is a sight to see with the 700 foot tall dam pressed into the canyon walls and the clear green water of the Colorado River springing forth.
From the dam you'll pass under the powerlines and find Ropes Trail Camps on river right. The next camp is on river left called Ferry Swale Camps. Shortly downstream you'll enter Horseshoe Bend which is a big right hand bend that changes direction 180 degrees. 9 mile camp is on river right at the peak of the bend. 8 mile camp is just downstream on river right and 7.5 mile camp is on river left. The last camp you'll find is 6 mile camp on river right.
After 6 mile camp, you'll enter a large sweeping right hand bend which ends at Lee's Ferry on river right.
