No problem making the short drive off the highway to the parking area, nor the short walk to the Gooseneck Overlook. The canyon is deep and beautiful showing different colors in every exposed layer and is well worth some photographs. When we were there in April, there wasn't much water in the river, but flowers were coming out pretty well.... More

Easy short hike that ends with spectacular vistas. Take the time to visit here. Short ride on a dirt road that is fine for family cars.

What an amazing view! The short ride on a dirt road was worth a quick stop to see the spectacular view. Just a small easy walk too.

We were surprised by the incredible canyon view at the end of this little trail. Did it right before the adjacent Sunset Point trail.

The kids loved this easy hike. It was so super short and gets you to a very pretty overlook. Not the best of overlooks but still worth a quick trip as it's very fast and easy for kids.

This is quite spectacular but not as good as some other places. The view of the winding river many feet below is quite spectacular but the view is somewhat limited. Worth a visit and a short deviation off the highway.

Trio on the run, drove down from Upper Antelope Canyon, once again not knowing what to expect, there it was a stunning Nature's creation, Utah seemed a gifted State, never short of fascinating wonders, couldn't help wondering how and what actually created this truly amazing place on Earth! One has to see it to believe!!

Okay, there's not masses here, but what an absolute gem! I was more awe inspired with this than the Grand Canyon, but probably only because you could get a proper feel for the place. The location is quite simply stunning and it's amazing to see where the river has cut through the stone. It's only a short drive off the... More
