Very easy for some great views. Make sure you hike to the end to see the canyons on your right!

Easy walk, great views! In my opinion this has better views than the Mesa Arch Trail, but both are worth visiting!

Gorgeous, easy hike! Well maintained. It can get windy, so hold on to your hat if you are near the edge.

An easy walk. A great overview of what the park is about and I loved the end of the trail with its stunning views and the silence.

Nice level trail to a viewpoint that follows a rim overlooking the white rim

If you only do one walk in Island in the Sky, it has to be this one. It is easy even if you aren’t in shape and really fun. Amazing views on both sides. Most of the hike is walking along the edge with 1300’ drop-offs. You can stay as far away or near the edge as you want so OK even if you don’t like heights.

Awesome trail to get you a good view of the canyon. Just be aware that you're hiking on the edge of a canyon in case you're afraid of heights.

Easy, well marked and maintained trail along the canyon rim. Beautiful views of the vast canyonlands.

Love this hike- you start out following the rim on the east side and then move over to the western rim. The whole way is absolutely beautiful. We hiked this as the sun was beginning to set, so a lot of the buttes to the west were more silhouettes than colorful. Doing this early morning or mid morning would probably be incredible for photos of those.

Happy that I choose this trail although it was harder than expected due to the altitude. The view was beautiful.

Fairly easy hike, more of walk with a few sets of stairs. Great panoramic views of the canyons and plenty of room for people to pass and take pictures.

You can drive up and see most of the canyon from the overlook, or you can hike about a mile away from people and see the canyon. Either way the view is breathtaking. Such a spectacular panoramic, you really almost lose all sense of size if wasn't for the few roads through the canyon.

Not really a hike. You just walk around and enjoy the majestic view!

Anything less than 5 stars is just wrong! Easy hike with amazing views from start to finish - one amazing short walk.

A great walk in island. Lots of places to step to the edge, sit, relax, and watch. Had a great conversation with a raven that sat next to me for a while. Some up and down over steps but a relatively easy walk.

Pretty awesome views rivaling the Grand Canyon, although not quite so good in my humble hiker opinion. Still, well worth the short jaunt to the end and even more amazing views. This whole park is truly unbelievable.

Breathtaking views . Some spots on the way to the second overlook are not for people who are afraid of heights. The second overlook was much better than the first one.

The hike is fine and the views are unbelievable. The problem is: the best views are from the trailhead/parking lot. Throughout the course of the hike, you continue to see the same views, but the vista doesn't get any better. I liked the trail and it's worth walking as it's pretty well defined. However, there's no reward for your effort. I can't give this trail more than 3 stars.

That said, you should go for the view and the exercise.
