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!
