  • If you're anywhere near Moab, this is a place not to be missed. The views are stunning -- perhaps the best we've seen anywhere. There is no place in or near Canyonlands National Park that can compare....  more »
  • Very nice Park that was on our route. It is smaller than the other and a little less spectacular but it is to do. Little person on the trails. We made 2 very nice slickrock duration 1.5 hours fun for the children and very beautiful landscape and the last 40 min cellar beautiful spring including 2 small ladders to climb and it passes under the view at the top sometimes nice rocks to do so a treat with the kids!

  • We had an extra hour or so and thought we'd check out the needles overlook since the needles themselves seemed even further away. The turnoff was further south of Moab than we thought so just keep you...  more »

  • Awesome panoramic view, the scale is absolutely immense to see in person. Worth taking a detour here from the main highway
  • Incredible, worth the short drive over there. Don't miss it.
  • Dramatic and worth the drive.
  • We would have driven right past this place, had our thoughtful hotel receptionist in Monticello not suggested it. It’s about a 40 minute drive west from the main road in the area, 119, across a fairly flat and boring landscape. Less than impressed when we first got here on a dreary spring (2013) morning, all we could see beyond the edge of the cliff was a wall of fog. So, with nothing but chilly whiteness to see, we climbed back into the car to plan our next stop (arches national park, also great). About 10 minutes later, we looked up from our map gadgets, ready to leave, but the clouds were now almost gone. Walking to the edge of the cliff, we could see the last shreds of clouds dissolving, revealing a vista that stretches for scores if not, hundreds of miles. In three directions! I got a little vertigo when I discovered the cliff we stood upon was actually a quarter mile high. Unlike the Grand Canyon, the valley here is dozens of miles wide, but it is just as deep. To the north you can see the Colorado snaking its way back up the valley it carved, towards Moab. To the west the Colorado is joined by the Green River which must be why the basin is so wide there. To the south-west, the wide canyon continued as far as we could see, eventually merging into the haze of distance. We both agreed, the Grand Canyon was a bit disappointing after seeing this place! You read right, THAT is how awesome this place is.
  • Great views!
