Hero: Power Pole Rim
small-sr Icon

Power Pole Rim is a multi-section spur off Pole Canyon Rim and leads to a fantastic cliffside overlook high above Hittle Bottom and the Colorado River. The road starts several miles into Pole Canyon Rim before branching off for a short stint, then crossing over Pole Canyon Rim again before dead-ending at the overlook. For the most part, this trail is a fairly easy, rocky, and rough road. This includes the second section of the road that leads to the overlook. However, the first section of the road between the two Pole Canyon Rim intersections is a nasty 30-yard hill climb on an exposed ridge, covered in loose dirt and riddled with multiple 18-inch ledges. This hill requires a lifted vehicle with larger tires. A spotter is recommended, and a good line choice is required.

The trail ends with several campsites along the rim next to the power poles that drop 1,200 feet to the valley floor next to the river. This is a great place to take in a sunset and enjoy the views.
