  • Located at the very southern end of the of the main park road in the Island in the Sky District, the accessible overview is a very short distance from the parking lot and provides a truly spectacular,...  more »
  • I was visiting Arches and staying in Moab and took the drive to Grand View Point Overlook, Canyonlands National Park. The overlook is spectacular and it's a nice hike if you avoid the afternoon heat.  more »
  • We only walked to marker post 4 as the ranger advised us the trail became steep and more difficult after this point. This still gave us a great view over the valley and towards the Needles.  more »

  • 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.
  • Enjoy the view but be safe as winds can gust up. The walk is worth the views
  • Awesome views, as the name implies. Easy hike. Anyone can do the 1 mile in and 1 mile return.
  • If you drive the Islands in the Sky Loop, you are a fool not to make the short hike out to one of the most dramatic vistas in North America.
