  • Green River is one of the most dramatic viewpoints in the Island in the Sky district of Canyonlands National Park. This district is located about 30 miles west of Moab, UT via US191 and UT313. Admissi...  more »
  • The Green River is the river Colorado, where its twin to Canyonlands Island in the Sky area there flows its waters. The river is barely visible from this overlook, but you can distinguish several hundred metres below. The landscaping is beautiful as the whole area, definitely worth a stop.

  • To get there you need to take the Upheaval Dome rd and then get into the Green River Overlook. As with all Park, the view is beautiful. There is a parking lot on site.

  • 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.)
