The hike itself was unremarkable – basically, 1.8 miles each way with no shade and not much to see – and there are better overlooks along the main road. Views were disappointingly hazy in August 2018 from all the fires. Didn’t feel quite worth it.

The best views in Island in the Sky, along with the White Rim overlook, and a very easy trail. Would definitely recommend.

Good views of the Needles formations. Trail is completely exposed and at times hard to follow.

This arch is a sunrise must. Get there earlier than 15 minutes before sunrise though because there were a wall of people setup with tripods hogging the entire photograph viewpoints at that time already. If not for the surprising amount of people I would’ve gave 5. Popular spot, so come early if you want a parking spot.

I hiked part of this trail along the edge of the cliff. It’s beautiful and fairly easy. There’s just stairs every now and then.

An ok and pretty straightforward hike. Go to the second overlook, which provides slightly better views of the features. Kind of cool that the history behind the creation of the features is still being discovered. Overall though, happy enough to have hiked it once, would likely not do it again.

Really nice short and easy hike to cap off my time at Canyonlands. Did it towards the end of the day when the sun was setting, which really made the experience!

You can see many huge steps on the land. That is amazing.

Excellent trail, we liked the view much better than the Grand Canyon.

Very short hike, but crowded. I came in early May and there was still quite a crowd.

Nice, short walk from parking for a viewpoint.

Great Outlool

Trail is not really marked so we were confused at first, but if you drive to Grand View Point and walk down to the railing outlook, the trail is directly to your right. The park has created square cairns that will mark your path from there. Super easy hike with awesome views at the end. Would recommend for sunset!!

Easy hike and a unique arch. Time well spent.

Nice little hike. Bizarre, beautiful scenery in the dome and pretty good views of the canyons on the other sides.

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.
