2 mile return walk to Grand View Point Overlook. Spectacular views along the way and the the grand view at the end.
We drove all the way to the end of the road in Island in the Sky section of Canyonlands National Park. This is called Grand View Point Overlook with elevation of 6080'. Here you can see for 35 miles to the La Sal Mountains near the Colorado border and Mt. Peale, elevation…
Two miles roundtrip through the snow made this a beautiful hike even without the great views. I wore traction devices since I slip easily, but plenty of people did ok without them. The views were amazing.
Grandview Point at the south end of the Island in the Sky road certainly lives up to its name. You can get a broad panarama of the sheer drop down to the White Rim and the second drop to the inner canyon, as well as into the Monument Basin across the gorge in the Needles…
Beautiful hiking trails very remote location. October is a nice quiet month to visit. Sunny and dry all of the time!
