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...

To really explore this park you need quite a bit of time and an probably an all-terrain vehicle, but even just stopping at the top of the canyon is absolutely worth it. The formation of the canyon and the three plateaus that form the different regions of the park is incredibly interesting and beautiful.

It's so amazing place with stunning view of canyon. The only things that I didn't prepare enough time to stay. I will certainly spend a week in here down into canyon, and not just stay on top.

This is a lovely drive. There are so many stops along the way. A definite place to visit if you are near Moab. Don't miss Mesa Arch.

While I was in Moab, I went to Arches National Park, Corona Arch, Canyonlands-Needles District, Dead Horse Point State Park and Canyonlands-Island in the Sky. This was my absolute favourite place. So many great lookouts, the trails were fun hiking and every second step is another spectacular view that will take your breath away. Grand View Point trail is a... More
