Long hike along ridge atop a plateau peninsula. Heavily trafficed but spectacular views.

One of the best ways to see the overlooks at Canyonlands. The hike was not hard, but sometimes the carins are hard to see and follow. We did this one time at sunset and another time with kids and it was wonderful.

I loved Canyonlands and highly recommended this hike. I would say it's pretty easy but still bring water and the proper hiking shoes. Enjoy!

SO worth doing while you're in the Island in the Sky District. Sure, it can be busy, but that's because it's an easy, spectacular trail! It is at the south end of the mesa, so it's a different perspective than all of the other trails which give you views to the east or west.

Crowded, but not overwhelming for a long weekend. Fabulous views and photo opportunities. Family friendly if you keep your more adventurous kids close by. No safety rails ;-)

Rushed here from Teton (yes a ridiculous long way, but only short vacation) to see the sunset and the views were stunning. The path is really clear and well laid out, with stunning views on both sides. Well worth it and a really easy trail.

Short, easy hike. But worth the views

AMAZING views. Relatively easy hike, just follow the cairns! We found plenty of chances to wander off trail (it's mostly on bedrock) and climb up to cool vantage points. We ended up having to make a quick return from the end due to a thunderstorm bearing down on us, but still had a blast!

Super easy walk, perfect for a lazy day (combined with some other walks). Views are really amazing.

Long drive out to it. Great little hike and was able to see both East and West side of Canyons. If you are weary of heights trail takes some getting used to but is very do-able. Several stairs to climb up and down. Just go slow

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.
