  • If you make it to Moab, you really have to check out Canyonlands! It is overlooked due to the proximity to Arches, and deserves more credit than it gets. Even if you just drive through and go to the l...  more »
  • Probably the only other place in Canyonlands NP that has this good of a view is at Mesa Arch. Definitely take the easy 2.2 mi. RT rim walk to the end of the plateau. The views from the end are even mo...  more »
  • The view is spectacular although don't expect to see the confluence; below is the White Rim with the Needles in the distance as well as three mountain ranges (LaSal east, Abajo southeast, Henry west)....  more »

  • Its a little bit of a trek but the views are tremendous!
  • This was an awe-inspiring view of the vastness of Island in the Sky. I would say visit here first to get an idea of how much beauty there is in Canyonlands. We took a picnic and ate on the edge of the overlook and soaked up some sun (mid-April weather!). Great place overall.
  • Best single attraction at Canyonlands If you were to rank the various viewpoints or "attractions" at Canyonlands that you can get to without a four wheel drive, this ranks on top. The trail is a must to appreciate this park. The trail is not super easy but it's worth the effort. You walk along the rim with some dramatic vertical cliffs. After some uphill, you reach a viewpoint that affords a 270 degree vista of the river / valley below. It's breathtaking. The view is well worth the hiking effort. The trail is not that long. It can be done in a hour or so. If you do not want to hike, the view from the parking lot is also OK, but not as dramatic as the hike.
  • Can't get any better than that. A moderate hike leads you to a view word can't describe. Not to be missed.
  • Awesome views, as the name implies. Easy hike. Anyone can do the 1 mile in and 1 mile return.
