This is a moderate trail to the overlooks of the dome that is worth your time. There are several panoramic views along the way also.

The hike to Upheaval Dome (UD) is a 1.7 mile round trip if both stops are visited. Once again, barren rock formations present a wonder to behold. Desolation is beautiful as long as you have food and water and a warm place to sleep!

How this place was formed is still debated. Either the collapse of a salt dome or the eroded remnant of a meteor strike. Check it out online.

However it was created, this short "moderate" hike rewards you with 2 different views of UD. The walk is certainly worth the effort. This place is also in the vicinity of "Whale Rock" which should also be explored. There are restroom facilities and picnic areas here as well.

The upheaval Dome feature is one of the major interesting features in Canyonlands NP. There is rim outlook and a short hike to the feature. It is well worth a short stop and loop as you drive through the Canyonlands NP.

Anyone couldn't obtain how arrived this geological feature, even the scientists. For visitors most interesting see it, look and fill the strong of nature forces created this crater million years ago. It worse to see it!. The crater, the color sands, the rocks and cliffs and the dome inside the crater. It is clearly seen already from first view point, and not difficult to reach. The second view point is more far, but always possible finish trail in same intermediate point and return - there a lot of cosmic landscapes due walking.

The hike from the parking lot to the first view point involves a number of uneven steep steps and walking on uneven rocks. We arrived here later in the day and found the walk quite tiring in the heat.
