Wonderful place and views - very busy, with a reasonable amount of parking, but there is a pretty quick turnover of people coming and going. The main view point is pretty packed, but wander in either direction and it really thins out. Recommend the hike...More

It’s so awesome to see how unique each of Utah’s National Parks are & Canyonlands is no exception. Most overlooks are an easy hike to get to with Spectacular views. We enjoyed each Overlook but Mesa Arch was our favorite!

Been there many times and is always worth the time. This time we went off course and hiked to the East along the rim. Six shooters in the distance and Dutch Shoe.

I never expected such a view from Canyonlands. Not many people talk about this park. Good! I like it the way it is. This viewpoint of the Colorado river is awesome. In my opinion better than the Grand Canyon! Don’t miss it!!

I read some reviews prior to going myself that said Grand View Point Overlook wasn't worth their time. Well let me tell you. It is definitely worth your time. I thought it was spectacular.

We drove to the end of the road and hiked to Grand Point Overlook. You can walk from the parking area just to the lookout or you can walk down the stairs for a broader view. From the stairs, there is a beautiful, flat rock...More
