This is a spectacular vista point, ignoring the tour bus guy's monologue, but if you are heading south towards Canyonlands, a far better experience is a turn-off signed Canyonlads Overlook. This is not inside the park. The drive in is about 20 miles but you...More

We left the "needles district" at Canyonlands and stopped at the advise of a park ranger on the way back to Moab. It doesn't take long and was well worth it with awesome scenery. It's an extremely nice state park with an excellent visitor center.

It's a nice area to drive to with beautiful views. We went at sunset and there were lots of people doing the same, but we got great photos.

Great for people who aren’t up for steep climbs. Great vistas. Go in spring or fall for best weather!

This state park is a short detour on your way to Canyonlands and must not be missed. A truly astounding view and excellent parking/picnic facilities at the view. Do not miss it!
