    The overlook is just a short walk from the parking area, and worth the effort. Another stunning vista, with the Green River winding way down below.  more »

    The Green River Overlook is definitely one that should never be missed. Walk from car park to the view point is 1 minute long, and the reward is extraordinary.  more »

    Have been here 3 times, and every time it feels breath taking. Would love to go down there if we had a 4 by 4.

    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.

    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.)

    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.

    Great views of canyons as far as the eye can see. Fun and easy hike to the actual viewpoint.

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.
