  • Accessible from Moab, The Needles Area is located on a different area of the Island in the Sky. So it takes a day. This area is nice and much less crowded than the rest of the Park. She is perfectly accessible by car from tourism up Elephant Hill, which is the start of hiking. The view on the barrier of needles is different of what one knows so far. Beautiful!

  • The directions pretty long takes of Moab, but also from Monticello. On the whole, there are produced from the visitor center a road of about 16 km, leading to different starting points for hikes. Also who just sits in the car and from there or from the car park at the area, comes at its own expense, but the long journey is only really worthwhile if you take one or more hikes under the feet. In the brochure obtained at the entrance to the National Park, these are very well described and classified according to degree of difficulty so that's easy for one, to select the right way. Must watch you with itineraries: the specified line begins at the start of the trail. From the car park to the start/finish it may be far quite a few miles. You will be rewarded with magnificent views.
