The overlook and corresponding 1 mile hike along the rim (one way) were probably one of the higlights of our trip to Southern Utah. Easy hike and a MUST DO!

I enjoyed Canyonlands but personally Arches imo was way nicer. This is a great spot for views from the car and small trails to nice overviews of canyons. Watch your step people it’s a long way down.

For me, this was the highlight of Canyonlands NP. The views are mind-blowing and some of the rock formations look like a 3-dimensional jigsaw. If you get the chance, you must visit Grand View Point Overlook.

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
