Defiance House in Forgotten Canyon



  • Title:  Defiance House in Forgotten Canyon
  • Description:  Defiance House is located in Forgotten Canyon on Lake Powell. Forgotten Canyon is located approximately 12 miles upstream from Hall's Crossing. Defiance House, named for three large warrior figures painted above a Puebloan ruin, is one of the most popular ruins on Lake Powell to visit. The ruins date back to about 1250 AD and are of the Ancestral Puebloan culture. They were studied and officially mapped in 1959 by the University of Utah, just prior to Glen Canyon Dam being built. Fortunately, the ruins are above high water mark and have been preserved. The lake level fluctuates, but even in quite low conditions it is only a short walk from you boat to visit them. In high water, you can boat right to the base of the short trail that goes to them.
