  • The Grand View is every bit as spectacular as its name implies. The view point itself is no simple overlook spot, but a long cliff that visitors can walk along, with amazing views in every direction. ...  more »

  • I was wowed by the expanse of the lands. I could see the mountains in the background and the clouds. But look down over the edge and get a glimpse of Shafer Trail. That's a real thrill!  more »

  • 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.
