  • We loved this trail which is in the Island in the Sky district of Canyonlands National Park. It offers fantastic views of the Canyon, on both sides and ones you can't get from the parking lot...

  • We stopped here with our tour prior to entering the park. It provided a nice view and had adequate parking for many cars to park.

  • Great trail, sharp cliffs, watch your little ones or leave them at home. Breathtaking views of the white rim canyon, needles, and Green River. Begging your lunch and have a picnic with your loved one at the drop off. We did and it was incredible. Nice easy walk to the end of the mesa. Our kids were 7, 12, and 16 and it was still hard monitor their safety, since their curiosity was stronger than parent's pleads for staying off the edges. Overall an awesome walk. Recommend to anyone who enjoys outdoors and amazing views.
  • This is the endpoint of an fairly easy, relatively short hike along the edge of a spectacular canyon. Great views to be found here, but honestly, I enjoyed the views on the hike to/from this overlook better than the views on the overlook itself. The hike is doable by pretty much anyone of even passable health, regardless of age. Parents of children / people afraid of heights, be forewarned; there are no guardrails and enormous, nearly vertical drops along the hike, . That said, the trail never gets narrow enough where you remotely have to worry about falling over the edge, unless you decide to get close to the edge for better photos of the views. And the views really are grand like the name suggests. Well worth the visit and the hike, thoroughly recommended
