An easy walk out to an arch perched right on a cliff edge. A great sunrise hike in Canyonlands National Park with great views. The Island in the Sky mesa rests on sheer sandstone cliffs over 1,000 feet above the surrounding terrain. Every overlook offers a different perspective on Canyonlands' spectacular landscape. The Island is the easiest district to visit in a short period of time, offering many pullouts with spectacular views along the paved scenic drive. Hiking trails and four-wheel-drive roads access backcountry areas for day or overnight trips. Mesa Arch Trail is easy and offers great views from the arch perched right on a cliff edge.

Chresler Park Viewpoint can be made much longer by making it into a full loop. There are many other interconnecting trails and you can very easily do just a portion of this trail and turn back sooner. This trail does not take you by Druid Arch. Show more

Note: The term squaw is considered universally offensive by Indigenous groups in America due to its use for hundreds of years in a derogatory context. Indigenous activists have continued to work both locally and in more general educational efforts, to rename the locations across North America that contain the slur, as well as to eliminate the slur from the lexicon in general.
