“Nice Dome”
Review of Upheaval Dome

The Upheaval Dome has nice colours, but I didn't think that it was impressive enough to walk past the first viewpoint.
The second viewpoint had a closer view but wasn't that exciting.

It was fun to learn how this entire area was formed. I think they are still determining what caused it. I like the impact theory. Nice hike back up in to this place, really enjoyed it. No shade.

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.
