This National Park is good. Not amazing but good. Its like being sorrounded and driving by little canyons. I liked it because it reminded me to all those movies of the wild west. Its the same scenary!! If you have time, you should go. If not, better go to arches and great grand canyon

UTAH SR211 AND THE NEEDLES (UTAH’S HIDDEN BYWAYS III) When I think about the most amazing roads that I have driven, and roads that I would like to see over and over again, another great byway that I think about UTAH SR211 south of Moab, Utah. This road is not well traveled past a certain point, even though it leads... More

We visited the Island in the Sky mesa. This was way high up and afforded us amazing views of massive buttes, more sandstones cliffs, the Green and Colorado River. We stopped at Upheaval Dome, Green River overlook and Grand View Point. What a view with the snow on the canyonlands. Magnificent.

We're certain that the park is beautiful in the other seasons as well but they will without a doubt be more crowded. We enjoyed touring Canyonlands at our own pace and easily finding a parking space at the turnouts to take pictures. We have 4 wheel drive and snow tires so we had absolutely no problem with the lack of... More

They have nice little trails with nice views... and the view of it from the Dead horse park is amazing. But they are terrible with the snow! I don't know how hard it is to remove the ice and snow from like 20 miles of road but it shouldn't be that long !!! We arrived the after the snow (although... More

We had a very similar experience to a previous reviewer in that we were on our way to our motel in Moab, and after a long, tiring day at South Canyonlands and Arches, were debating whether to give North Canyonlands a miss. But at the last moment, very late in the afternoon, we decided to go for it and were... More

Visited the Needles District one day, set aside another for Deadhorse Point SP and Island in the Sky another. We were exhausted by the end of the day, but glad we were able to see so much in such a short time. Some of the most incredible views we've ever encountered. Fun and beautiful drives with plenty of turnouts with... More

So glad that we visited the Canyonlands National Park. There were breathing views throughout the entire drive and many places to stop and take some great pictures of the canyon. It takes about 1 hour and 45 min to drive from Moab to the park but it is so worth it! The views are so spectacular that you will feel... More

Really its one of the most beautiful drives I have done. My plan was to spend a few hours on the way in Canyonlands, but the... More
