Just neat.

Get out and take in the spectacular views. We were even there on a slightly overcast day and the views were amazing. Great when paired with Arches National Park.

This park doesn't get the press it should. It is absolutely amazing. The Green River Overlook - OH MY. Who even knew this was back there - and SO VERY BEAUTIFUL. We also hiked to the Mesa Arch. WOW --- it's there and then a huge cliff/drop-off behind. This hike is about a mile total and is billed easy -... More

There are three sections to Canyonlands National Park. I felt the Island in the Sky was the most beautiful. Plenty of hiking trails all over the park. The needles section was also beautiful. This park is well worth a visit.

We went here as part of a road trip of all Utah park and we were completely stunned by the beauty of the place ! The view is gorgeous, the trails are incredible and there is so many spots different one from another ! If you are a bit adventurous,do not pass the opportunity to do some backcountry, we had...

From Moab this is the most accessible part of Canyonlands National Park, the others are a long drive. It only has a small visitor centre (probably because it is not as popular as nearby Arches) with limited facilities so take a picnic and water. There are some incredible overviews of the Colorado & Green River canyons. I could argue that... More

Awesome! The drive into the park is VERY beautiful as well! A very good national park if you don't want to hike, but would rather drive to lookout and take short, easy walk to view.

A little out of the way but worth stopping for. The view is terrific reminding you of the Grand Canyon. Nice hiking trails for those who want to stretch or want exercise.

You really could spend several weeks exploring this area. Lots to see both paved and primitive trails but if you don't have a lot of time I recommend checking out Mesa Arch and upheaval some both are well worth the drive to the park and offer incredible sights. Don't miss out on these places.

Our plan was to hike in the 5 national parks in UT, followed by the Grand Canyon. We had 3 days in Moab, one day scheduled for Canyonlands. When we got to Moab, there was so much to do (Arches, river rafting, other hikes, mountains, etc...) we almost skipped Canyonlands as it was 30 miles out of town. That would... More

This is worth the drive! What a beautiful viewpoint. It's a bit of a drive into the park to get to Island in the Sky, but you not regret it. There are plenty of places to pull off and check out the beautiful views along the way!
