I didn't walk out this whole trail. I went down a ways to get a view towards the east, but that was it. The Green River overlook is better than this one I think. You can't even see the Colorado river from here?? Was not impressed.

Short and sweet!

This was an amazing hike with great views from the valley floor and along rim tops. It was harder than we thought which was great. A lot of rock climbing up slick rocks which wasn’t to bad. Started trail at 7:15am and did t see another person. Exceeded our expectations on every level.

This was the first hike we did the afternoon we arrived in Canyonlands and it was a great start to our trip. The trail was straightforward and pretty quick, and we only saw one other couple the whole time. The viewpoint at the end is fabulous, and gives a view of the river I don't think we got on any of our other hikes over our 5 day trip. So quiet on the trail, but that seemed to be the norm for most all of the longer trails in Canyonlands.

We did the hike in the evening to the second overlook. This trail wasn't too difficult or long, but still had us sweating on the inclines due to the heat of the day (100s). Really cool trail between the first and second overlooks, definitely a better view at the second overlook. Definitely worth doing if you have time in Canyonlands to add this on!

We went in the evening after a long morning hike and found the trail to not be too busy. This was a lovely hike and a great way to see all directions of the park. Looking out from such a high point was great. You get views your really just can't from the road. The trail is not too difficult at all and quite flat, but we did see some people struggling who didn't have enough water considering the heat/dry weather or were simply new to hiking.

This was a nice solid hike to get our legs ready for Canyonlands. A few structures remaining from cattle ranching days, and seeing all the green vegetation down and around the springs was certainly cool. Hiked this in a hot nearly 100 degree day in late June, but we started early so it wasn't so bad. The last 2 miles or so are a bit lackluster, just walking along the mesa top and eventually paralleling the road, but necessary to make the trail a loop I suppose. Didn't see any other hikers on the trail the entire time.

A very mild hike with a picture perfect view! I had my doubts about going to Canyonland until I did this hike. I left asking everyone "Why don't more people come here?!"

I loved checking out the dwellings and granary. Climbing up the was a pretty fun run up to the top. We did this trail in June and appreciated the ingenuity of the food storage. As a history teacher, it was fun to check out the dwellings as well and image what it would be like to survive there hundreds of years ago!

Great trail that's not very busy. There is some scrambling, but not too bad. Great view from the top.

The second outlook 1/2 was by myself, also I found it to be the best half with more slickrock etc.

Another hike to a scenic overlook, each has its unique view of the canyon. Just a little less busy because it has a little more length than most of the overlooks. Makes it all the more reason to do it.

Actually a nice. Views a bonus. I suspect crowded most days, wasn't when I went.

Easy trail. EVERYONE should see this view once. Breathtaking.

Long hike along ridge atop a plateau peninsula. Heavily trafficed but spectacular views.

Wow - it does say some scrambling on the description. Sadly I don’t do well with heights and it was crazy windy today. We did the majority of the high, I just couldn’t do the last bit. Views were great.

It was great, very heavily trafficked. Loved the view thru the arch!! Easy to walk!!

Nice canyonlands. Lovely terrain. Great views.

Awesome hike with breathtaking canyon views! We've hiked in Zion, Bryce Canyon, Grand Canyon, and Arches, and this hike tops them all. The final scramble up loose rocks is challenging but worth it. We relaxed in the alcove and took in the views.

A short little hike that takes you over a ridge to see the arch. The elevation was not too hard for us, but a bit more than expected for "Easy" trail. Once you get there, really easy to see the overlook and arch.
