Green River Overlook is located 1 mi off Upheaval Dome Road. There is a decent-sized parking lot at the overlook. We stopped here around 2pm on a windy Thursday in April. Wow, what a gorgeous view of the White Rim, White Rim Road, and Green...More

This is certainly in my top 3 greatest views in the world. The light is right for an early morning trip (we visited in late Feb). By far the most spectacular site I saw in Needles, North canyonlands and Arches NP.

This is a gorgeous overlook of the Green River (it really looks green) and the surrounding area. The geography here is just amazing.

Stunning overlook of the Green River below you. It seems a lot of people miss this overlook when they visit Canyonlands NP as every time I've visited, I haven't seen any other cars in the parking lot. A must do if you're in the park.

This view point offers a great place to see the way the Green River has carved its way through several layers of earth. The access is available to most and does not require great conditioning.

That was really amazing. This overlook is huge and the views are astonishing. It is a must see stop while exploring Canyonland NP.

Well thought out overlook with pleasant facilities and a great view of the area. There is a trail also. Busy and since it was noon everyone wanted to stop and eat there so we couldn't find a picnic table but we ate later elsewhere.

The park is clearly marked and the pullouts are great for stopping and viewing. It is easy to access and all the overlooks and worth a stop,

The overlook is just a short walk from the parking area, and worth the effort. Another stunning vista, with the Green River winding way down below.
