This was a great place for pictures. We parked at the end and walked around the edges to take pictures. The kids loved it. There are a few canopies for shade and benches. You’re able to go up to the edges of the cliff if you want.

Entrance is checking that you are from one of the local counties. Loop is probably a lot of fun on a MTB, looks pretty chill for that. Hiking it is a bit less exciting.

The trail was right along the wall, and we walked up and back a fair bit, but I wouldn't consider this a "hike". Great for the vistas and taking pictures.

Phenomenal!! Highly recommend - don’t miss this state park. Also, check the state website as they offer awesome programs, including a nighttime ranger-led sky tour of many constellations, the Milky Way, Andromeda, and they even bring out a telescope to show Saturn, its rings, and Titan. This was a fabulous program and one of our favorite aspects of our trip. Even if you stay in the park at night to see the sky, it’s worth it (new moon or moon rising later in the night) is best. Drive back to Moab slowly - many animals come out at night. Also, enjoy the bats at sunset!

An easy stroll but very touristy. That said, the views are gorgeous!

A slightly different perspective than the Canyonlands NP, but in many ways more of the same. We camped in the State Park while visiting Canyonlands, so it would have been rude not to come here too. The viewpoints are definitely worth visiting.

Definitely one of the more tourist-y spots. Just a brief little walk but beautiful views of the Colorado River in Canyonlands.

Nice little stroll. Obviously touristy but the view of the canyons at the point is great.
