The local layers of the earth are exposed so visibly here! There is very pleasing color contrast between the layers. And it’s a compact enough view, it’s in some ways easier to visually grasp that a view from the rim of the Grand Canyon of the Colorado. Here, the Green River may be seen just upstream from where it joins the Colorado.
It may seem somewhat out of the way to make to this dead end but I think this is what the parks are here for. I wish time permitted us to hike out 1.6 km on the Grand Viewpoint Trail. As it is, members of our group broke out in song at the splendor here.

I absolutely love this hike along the canyon edge to the end of the Island in the Sky mesa. It's ~2 miles roundtrip and can easily be done in 1.5 hours, allowing for time to take in the breathtaking scenery and panoramic vistas of this amazing landscape. A favorite hike!

Don't miss this spot in Canyonlands, it's well worth the time to walk about 1 mile each way on the gentle and easy to follow trail all the way to the end. Lots of places to stop along the way and enjoy the views if you take little detours off to one side or the other.

The picture was taken from Spumoni Point which is on the right as you walk toward Grand View Point.

The hike to the viewpoint is easy and well worth the walk. Views of the Colorado and Green Rivers below make this a must-see in Canyonlands!

Grand view point and trail, are situated in the "Island in the Sky" part of Canyonlands. You can stop at the overlook for fabulous views of the canyons below, or you can take the 2.0 mile RT trail along the rim, for a better experience. The trail is easy. The views are unbelievable. It reminded me a lot of the Grand Canyon! Allow 1.5 hours for this trail.
Recommended!
