Lees Ferry.

Beginning of the Grand Canyon. The eastern end of the Grand Canyon begins at Lees Ferry on the Colorado River. It is located about 42 miles from Page, Arizona and 15 miles down river from Glen Canyon Dam which forms Lake Powell. It is an historic site of the Ferryboat Crossing used by pioneers, Indians and tourists from 1872 until 1928. Today, Lees Ferry is the beginning point for whitewater rafting trips into the Grand Canyon. Soft water raft floats can be taken from the base of Glen Canyon Dam to Lees Ferry for about 15 miles before the first rapids begin.

Lees Ferry boasts of some of the most productive trout fishing waters in the Southwest. Fishing guides are available at Lees Ferry and Arizona fishing licenses are available at nearby Marble Canyon Lodge. Tourists will discover a convenient ranger's station, a campground, courtesy launch dock and fish-cleaning station. The town of Marble Canyon is about three miles away and features a restaurant, store, motel and gas station.
