historic site

This landscape was eroded into canyons, buttes, and mesas by the Colorado River, Green River, and their tributaries. The park is divided into four districts by the rivers. There are rock pinnacles and other naturally sculpted rock, as well as artifacts from Ancient Pueblo Peoples.

This trail is spectacular!! There are some scary ledges and cliffs, especially with kids. But absolutely worth it!

This was an amazing trail. One of the best trails I have hiked it has what some might a little challenging as far as scrambling over a few rocks. There is a cool slot canyon (that is what I call it) that is very long which you hike through as well as some prairie like fields you walk through. This is definitely a worthwhile hike!

Short and sweet. Great view over the side of the Canyon wall. A bit too crowded to enjoy.

Amazing hike, other worldly scenery. This route is long, but large stretches are fairly flat. There are a few quick scrambles mixed in.

Beautiful views all over. Definitely worth the time and the sun - there is No shade, so bring a hat and plenty of water. The trail was really well marked with cairns - you're walking on rock for most of the trail, so it feels exploratory while also not getting lost. I would highly recommend following the cairns all the way out to the far rock on viewpoint 2 - my favorite view for sure.

Such a beautiful hike the entire way. It just kept on changing and getting more sci fi the further we went.

Great views of the crater but not great views of the canyon compared to the rest of the hikes

Beautiful the entire way with the most mild of scrambling. Our three year old did it

An easy way to see the best of Islands in the sky

Nice trail and less crowded than most of the other short hikes nearby. A brief scramble to reach the top of the Butte.

First time to canyonlands. This was a fun hike with great views and some mini challenges scrambling on some rocks. However, I’m 62 (in good shape) and it was manageable. No water flowing this time of year. We were not crazy about the walk on the road back to car. All in all, my friend and I enjoyed this 5.8 mile hike.
