Although our Jeep rental owner told us it was an easy trip, we got lost when we were on the way back! It was true that you could easily found the place. On the way to alstrom point please remind to always keep turn right...More
Good weather, except for very windy and partially cloudy . Regular awd suv. Went to the big water visitor center, but only followed google map. Relatively easy-driving unpaved road, until the last two miles. We tried and finally parked at 0.9 mile since we drove...More
Alstrom Point is way the freek out there... in the middle of nowhere. Literally, nowhere. I don't think 4 wheel drive is required, more so you just need the clearance that more 4 wheel drives offer. This is arguably the best viewpoint for Lake Powell/Glen...More
We travelled to Alstrom point after my husband heard of it on the internet. He was so excited to get there and camp under the stars. He was not disappointed neither were any of the rest of us. It was about an hour and a...More
Some call the drive to the overlook as barren. We loved every remote mile. Felt like we were driving in another world. Reminded me of pictures I've seen of Mars. The road was muddy when we were there but 4x4 not really needed until after...More
This drive was the most memorable drive of my entire trip! Remote-yes. Unforgettable-yes. Beautiful- undescribably so! Just google good directions, have a paper map, realize there is no cell service or GPS signal and you'll be ok as long as its dry and check the...More
Did an ATV ride to the point, it's about an hour from Page to the place where you begin riding the ATV, then it took a couple of hours out there. We were gone over 6 hours from Page, it was totally worth the ride,...More
The terrain is bleak and the roads get progressively worse as you trek, conspicuously alone, across barren rock and dirt, trusting your map and your GPS and your wife's intuition. But eventually you see colors and shapes that resolve into the remote, water-filled side canyons...More
Alstrom Point is an amazing overlook point on Lake Powell from the top of the cliffs.
It is very difficult to get there because all the roads leading to Alstrom Point are gravel and dirt roads that require SUV and preferably 4x4 with high clearance...More
It takes about an hour to get out to the Point. Not many miles, but slow driving and you definitely need 4 wheel drive and higher than normal car clearance. On the other hand, for our entire trip out and back, we saw no one...More
I believe you can make it to first overlook at about 23 miles in. After that it is slick rock and very rough. 4wd needed after first overlook. Don't attempt this drive after heavy rain. The roads can become impassable... More
I believe you can make it to first overlook at about 23 miles in. After that it is slick rock and very rough. 4wd needed after first overlook. Don't attempt this drive after heavy rain. The roads can become impassable and flash flooding is possible at the washes you have to cross. Cell phone service is spotty. Hope you get to see it!

It IS very difficult to find the way once you reach the slick rock. People have stacked rocks as a marker to follow, but still it is easy to get lost. I got lost twice, but the good news is you just turn around and try... More
It IS very difficult to find the way once you reach the slick rock. People have stacked rocks as a marker to follow, but still it is easy to get lost. I got lost twice, but the good news is you just turn around and try again. Just make SURE that you have plenty of daylight! You do not want to be near this area once it gets dark. The cliffs are very dangerous, it would be so easy to be driving along and just go over a cliff, even in the daylight.
I used Google Earth and really marked my path. I know it is a difficult drive, but so worth it!
