There is quite a bit to see in Canyonlands and this is a good place to see the Green River cut through the canyons. Pretty amazing.

We visited the Green River Overlook at Island in the Sky in Canyonlands National Park in hopes of seeing the iconic bend in the river. Though this overlook did have stellar views of the canyons below, it was not a good view of the river.

This was our first stop when we visited Island in the Sky district, and it was exactly what we were hoping for: a fantastic view over the canyons and the bed of the Green River. It doesn't seem to be as popular as Grand View...More

Beautiful spot to see. For photography, would say sunrise/sunset would be best. Don’t miss Mesa Arch, just a couple of miles away.

Another not to miss spot of Canyonlands. The Green River is off in the distance but the vastness of the view is great.

Well worth coming for a look and to read about Powell's adventure and how he charted the courses of the Green and Colorado rivers. What a trip.

This is a must stop in this park. To see the canyons from the Green River is an amazing sight. It rivals the Colorado at Grand View. Amazing that the Green and Colorado rivers create this Island in the Sky!!
