  • It is easy to miss Green River Overlook. Canyonlands has so many incredible overlooks that a visitor might consider skipping Green River and going right on to the larger, more prominent Grand Point, b...  more »
  • the picturesque view of the river snaking around the canyon is right out of a movie and should be a must see  more »
  • By the Green River overlook, you can see what forces of nature had to prevail to give rise to such rugged landscapes. A seemingly harmless Creek as the Green River for thousands managed to dig deep gorges into the Earth. You have a fascinating view of a very peculiar landscape by this point.

  • Someone carved a trench in the rocks! As the name implies, you see the Green River from this dramatic viewpoint. It looks like someone took a knife and cut a trench through a plateau. Of course, it's the Green River that carved this path through millions of years. The view is still "other-worldly". This viewpoint looks down on a bend in the Green River as it carves a path through a very flat looking plateau.
  • Spectacular view looking west. You are able to see various geological structures in lots of beautiful colors. Best viewed early in the day or around sunset.
  • Absolutely beautiful! No review needed! Photos don't do it justice!
  • Beautiful. Bit of a drive from Moab but and car can make it.
  • Unique view with the river view below. Neat view, seems so close but yet so far away. huge drop off wall, breezy point for our visit. Not packed full with people nice quiet spot.(for our visit.)
