Very short hike to a large flat overlook. Some fun crevices to climb around for different views.

This was our introduction to Canyonlands. The visitor center was closed so we started exploring right away. This can be dangerous for little children as there are sheer drop offs without rails. Other than that, be safe and have fun exploring.

Nice little walk to a spectacular viewpoint. You can also see 4WD vehicles inching their way up the pretty scary Schafer Trail switchbacks. Also, if you happen to have the Lonely Planet guide to US National Parks, this is where the picture for Canyonlands was taken from.
