This is a must see while in Moab. When you get there you have incredible views to the North, West and South. Bring your picnic lunch, many picnic tables and good vault toilets.

From this vantage point, which was twenty-two miles off the main highway, it was difficult to see the Needles. You had to go over the rocks to the farthest vantage point and look straight down. On the plus side, there were vault toilets here and...More

Needles Outlook and the Needles District of Canyonlands National Park aren't the same. Needles Outlook is 22 miles off Highway 191 on County Road 133, a great side trip if you're traveling between Monticello and Moab on Highway 191. It's north of Moab, near Arches...More

I can't say enough great things about this place. Awesome views, not crowded and free. What else can I say?

A very long drive but once you get there and if you aren't afraid of heights it's amazing! Incredible views of Canyonlands, spires, walls and other things...all from above. The 'Six Shooters' are incredible. A definite must do!

I'm mainly posting this review to warn folks with small(ish) children - and perhaps some adults! ;) The Needles Overlook was a split-second impulse for us while driving from Moab to Durango. The 44 mile round-trip deviation was well worth it. However, if you're traveling...More
