Reflection Canyon is located in Glen Canyon National Recreation Area, on the side of Lake Powell, between Utah and Arizona. It became famous after its photo was used in 2012 to promote Mac Book Pro high-resolution display. This amazing place is one-of-a-kind, but it's also rather hard to reach. Reflection Canyon can be accessed either by boat or a difficult hike.

The trip to Reflection Canyon starts at Grand Escalante Staircase National Monument, from there you can enter Glenn Canyon via the Rock Road. A small parking lot marks the beginning of the trail. The challenging hike through the Glen Canyon is 20 mi (32.18 km) long. The Reflection Canyon lays southeast from the parking lot, but the trail goes southwest first.

The trail is hardly marked, there is no cell phone reception in the area, and very few hikers dare to walk in this place. So be prepared, take everything you need for this isolated hike and do it in spring or fall.
