Directions from Needles Visitor Center: Drive 6.2 miles westward on the main park road, past Squaw Flat Road, to the Slickrock Trailhead.
Easy hike, but you do it for the views of the Needles section of Canyonlands NP. Jaw dropping views.
Great views of the needles and surrounding areas. Full sun exposure. Fun time climbing around the slick rock. There is a loop for part of the trail and a few view points that require leaving the main trail for hundreds of feet. This trail requires you to follow cairns.
