Powell Point is one of the most distinctive landmarks in southern Utah. The route begins at the Water Canyon trailhead, which is accessed from Highway 12 outside of Escalante. Follow Water Canyon Trail to the top of the Table Cliff Plateau, and then turn left (south) where Water Canyon Trail ends at the two-track on top of the Plateau. Follow the two-track until it dead-ends at the Powell Point trailhead, and take the trail until it dead-ends at Powell Point.
Mike Popejoy established a Strava segment for the ascent.
