Powell Point & Colorado River via North Bass Trail Map (Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona)
The rim-side perch lies on a Powell Plateau ledge, where the tent-door view looks west across gaping Bedrock and Galloway Canyons. The ends-of-the-earth site on the park’s remote North Rim lies roughly three miles from the Swamp Point trailhead. Get there by hiking to Muav Saddle then cut west cross-country to the plateau’s western edge, where you’ll find numerous ledges to spend the night. Stay here your first or last night on a four-day, 27-mile out-and-back on the North Bass Trail to the Colorado River, a classic, very remote trail that park backcountry rangers rank as a favorite and also begins at Swamp Point. Map includes turn-by-turn hiking directions and in-depth trip planning essentials to help you experience this BACKPACKER PRO adventure.
