Canyonlands is an awesome place, no matter which part you see.

This entire area is beyond words, whether driving through or out hiking the wonderful trails. You can't go wrong planning a visit here. I would return in a heartbeat. Every... read more

This entire area is beyond words, whether driving through or out hiking the wonderful trails. You can't go wrong planning a visit here. I would return in a heartbeat. Every place I visited in Canyonlands gets a five-star rating. Simply breathtaking.

Probably the best kept secret in Utah. Once you visit and watch the sunset you will be hard pressed to find another spot in the world as beautiful as this location.

Nice drive, although there are too many cattle guards! The ride is also a bit long, but once you get to the location its beautiful!

It is indeed a long drive but once you get off the main highway, every turn is a new vista. I felt like I was driving at the bottom of the Grand Canyon. The Needles district is much less crowded that the Island in the Sky. And it is much smaller. But the drive down there was truly worth it... More

The drive to Needles can take two hours from Moab one way. There are virtually no facilities along the way so make sure you have food and gas. The scenery is stunning.

The ride into the Needles district is beautiful. It never ceases to amaze me how around every corner there is a different scene that captures your attention and makes it difficult to drive! I would argue the only drawback anyone could possibly make is that it is a dead-end so you have to return the same way. The truth is... More

Starting with Newspaper rock, you get an idea of the many people that have lived and visited this fascinating area. Water is scarce in this region and you can see how the very limited agriculture caused the inhabitants and travelers difficulty. Stay away from the Needles Outpost. I have seen others having bad experiences with the owner. Her prices are... More

Absolutely beautiful country. You can't really describe it. Lots of view point areas where you can take pictures. Also, very clean.
