  • Basically, the Outlook is certainly spectacular, but can not compete with the Grand Canyon. Who was already at the Grand Canyon National Park, may be the Canyonlands to save at least the island in the sky area. Also, one should be only for the afternoon there. As long as the Sun is up, everything seems rather hazy, grey and two-dimensional. Only with the softer light in the late afternoon, come the reddish colors and überhauptm the whole colour spectrum well.

  • On a clear day you can see forever......We had a clear day and could see for a long way. This is the southernmost reach of the paved road of the "Island in the Sky" portion of the park. The parking ar...  more »
  • Vantage point of great beauty, boundless space, with beautiful views of canyons, cliffs and pinnacles toward the infinite space. I had seen several movies, but reality exceeds imagination. We remain shocked and awed by the Majesty of '' view '' that '' open '' in front of the balcony. The Park of Canyonlans is less frequented than other, more famous, but has nothing to envy, will leave a '' gaping ''.

  • 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.
  • Awesome views, as the name implies. Easy hike. Anyone can do the 1 mile in and 1 mile return.
  • Enjoy the view but be safe as winds can gust up. The walk is worth the views
  • Perfect point for an awesome view. You can feel the isolation and beauty of nature (art of God Almighty). Very close to the parking lot. 300 ft to the point and there is a 1 mile rim trail.

Where to stay in Canyonlands National Park

Canyonlands National Park offers camping in two first-come, first-served campgrounds and various primitive sites throughout the park. Most park visitors opt to stay in the nearby town of Moab, which offers plenty of places to rest in the form of national chain motels, rustic inns with a Southwestern vibe, and lodges. A few bed and breakfasts sit north and south of town on the way to the park, and a couple of ranches and lodges lie a bit farther from town, offering more luxurious digs in the majestic setting of southern Utah's high desert.
