Islands In The Sky is the place to visit in Canyonlands. We went to the Needles area first and were quite disappointed. As a matter of fact, we said had we been aware of how it was, we never would have made the drive down. Islands on the other hand is fantastic. The overviews are amazing and there's always something... More

This is the place to go in Canyonlands. Go to the Mesa Arch and see the beginning of the Grand Canyon. Lots of great hiking here and wonderful place!!

From here you can drive a paved road that takes you out to Grand View Point and to several stops along the way to see other views. There is also a spot to stop were you can see Mesa Arch. I love visiting this area.

We were visiting Moab and had no idea how incredible Canyonlands was!! We only had the chance to visit Island in the Sky and we loved it! The hikes were incredible - especially the Upheaval Domel- incredible views and awesome hikes on red rock and the grand view point overlook - a walk along the rim of cliffs overlooking the... More

The only downside of my drive through Island in the Sky was being limited on time. It was such a gorgeous drive- it has definitely convinced me to go back to the park and spend more time (I ran into many people there for camping/ATV trips, which seemed like a lot of fun) As other reviews have mentioned, Grand View...

If you love the desert or you love geological attractions or you love nature in all forms, this is a park you have to visit and spend some time. There are trails here that will take you into an unexpected oasis where you'll be the only person around. There are overlooks that will show you the expanse of the Colorado... More

We did not do the Needles side of the park but this side was breathtaking! There are several overlooks well worth the stop and very easy to walk to (a few hundred feet). The Grand View is worth the drive to the end of the road. The Aztec Buttes trail is fun and challenging on one butte and you get... More

There is nothing else like Island in the Sky. Much as I enjoy wandering in the Maze District or the Needles District, I will always love the awe-inspiring views that are around every corner of Island in the Sky. It has a decent range of trails - from very easy jaunts that little kids and grandparents alike can wander along,... More

GREEN RIVER OVERLOOK-ISLAND IN THE SKY CANYONLANDS NATIONAL PARK (UTAH’S HIDDEN BYWAYS XI) Much has been written about the Arches/Canyonlands National Park(s) region of Southeastern Utah. We, as easterners, first visited the region in 1973, when most of the facilities in Canyonlands National Park were non-existent, the roads were dirt/gravel, and the ranger station was a small trailer at the...
