Description

Cass Hite founded the first settlement in Glen Canyon here in 1883 at a place called "Dandy Crossing". Twomile and Fourmile Canyons were named for their distance from this crossing. There is very little camping but the canyon can be hiked. Trachyte is a type of volcanic rock.

Trachyotomy - The delicate procedure of squeezing and clambering through an extremely narrow slot canyon as it winds its way to Trachyte Creek. This turns into a serious slot canyon as it goes!

Getting There

Trachyte Canyon is at Mile 135 on the left side of Lake Powell.
