Spent time in both the Island in the Sky and Needles sections. It is a doable drive from Moab to Island in the Sky. Crowds were definitely more than Needles section, but not overbearing. The sights were beautiful. Able to see overlooks with wheelchair accessibility. Obviously not the hiking trails. The Needles section was much more remote and definitely less... More

This is a great way to spend a day enjoying the awesome rock formations . There are short and long trails so all can do what works for them. We spent a day in the main part of the park and another by entering from the Needles entrance. Both parts are worth visiting. Just be sure to have plenty of... More

The scenery here is absolutely breathtaking. It is the Grand Caynon plus the beauty of the colorful Utah mountains. Some of the hardest hikes we have ever done are found within this park. Will definitely return; like it even better than Zion and we love Zion.

Great walk and trails, easy to access from Moab and across the road from Arches NP. This place is worth a visit if you enjoy hiking, the canyons are easy to access but to get to the best ones you need a 4x4 - a bit of a downfall if you have a hire car but off-roading trucks can be... More

Another great National Park. It never seem over crowded. Interesting hikes and incredible views. Terrific sunrises and sunsets.

We visited Island in the Sky. Interesting formations, beautiful colors. There are plenty of hikes that can be taken, in varying lengths, depending on your stamina! It is too bad that Island in the Sky does not connect by road to The Needles.

We rented a Jeep for the day. Outlaw Jeep tours gave us a map with some off the road trail to enjoy. It was a great way to see this Park. The Park is awesome. I think I liked it better than Arches, if that is possible. It is so peaceful. One of the most beautiful places. Must see.

Fantastic vistas of colourful rock and jagged canyons. Hits you in a way that Arches just doesn't so if you are pushed for time I'd recommend Canyonlands.
