  • Just 2 miles there and back - it's an easy one to squeeze in if you don't have lots of time. The views at the end are some of the best you'll see anywhere - stunning. Fit this one in. 
  • On the highway towards Moab right bending down, schlengelt is the road for several miles to the Canyonlands National Park. At the entrance, a fee must be paid per vehicle. The national park pass is valid here too. As everywhere, get an overview map and information material here. The one-way scenic drive ends at Grand view overlook; on the way then some viewpoints are located on both sides of the path. At the overlook, you have an impressive wide- and low visibility. The panorama somewhat reminiscent of the Grand Canyon, is not as deep, but extensive. Right and left of the point there are no railing and the wall falls off vertically; There are small ways along the rim. Conclusion: Impressive and definitely worth a visit!

  • 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.
  • One of the most spectacular views I've ever seen. To make a correction from a previous post, the hike is 2 miles out and back. Also, the Rivers are the Colorado and the Green, although they are difficult to see. The hike is awesome, and easy.
  • Is the most amazing view of a canyon that you can have , better then in gran canyon as here you really feel how big and deep the canyon is .
  • A great easy 2 mile out and back trek for a great view point.
  • Beautiful views. And there is a fun trail that isn't very hard.
