    Hard to describe the experience at this place. It's off the beaten path, but the view is a truly once in a lifetime unforgettable experience. Pretty close 2nd place to coming out of the tunnel at Yosemite. Awesome views and bathrooms are available. Railings. Good place for people with disabilities to access and experience the overwhelming views these parks have to offer.

    Go there, it's worth the detour. No fences in many places, so be careful. Awesome views. Bring binoculars, some formations are far away.

    Needles overlook is not a famous point (there was only one more car when we reached there). Its about 20 miles off Route 191. The road is well maintained (with a few bumps). It is worth visiting to get a yet perspective of how Colorado River has shaped the landscape !! Must visit !!!

    Awesome panoramic view, the scale is absolutely immense to see in person. Worth taking a detour here from the main highway

Where to stay in Moab

For affordable accommodations away from tourist crowds, stay outside Moab's busy downtown. Many inns in this area offer free shuttle services to the central part of town, allowing you quick and easy access to Moab's finest shops and restaurants. If you do not plan to spend much time in your room, consider staying at a budget-friendly motel or hostel. For the ultimate in outdoorsy options, campgrounds inside the area's national parks make up what they lack in modern amenities with their panoramic views of the red desert.
