Long challenging hike but the views are worth every stride. Highly recommend taking the more scenic route to get to the south entrance of Canyonlands if staying in Monticello. Take 200 South Street west into the mountain and continue on to Harts Draw Rd to...More

This was one of the coolest hikes with the best views we've done on our holiday. This was our favorite hike in Canyonlands National Park (Needles). Take plenty of water. We took a gallon each and used it all. It does get hot.

Did this amazing hike with my son; both of us were fit, and we started early enough (in June). However, we somehow missed the turn to return to the loop trail (and our excellent campsite, CP1), and ended up going ALL THE WAY VIA devil's...More
