As mentioned before, there is no sign from main road telling you the side road leads to the White Rim trail, only a sign stating picnic area. This road is on the left before you get to Grand View. While the walk is easy, it was SO worth it with good canyon views on the tiny “peninsula in the sky” it ends on. My wife and I really enjoyed it. We saw maybe 5-6 people on that trail yesterday.

Great overlook that you’ll probably have all to yourself

Epic views. I went end of Aug, in the afternoon, and was the only one on the trail. Easy and well-marked.

A word of caution to Canyonlands “newbs” such as myself- the trailhead is not marked from the road as Gooseberry or White Rim Trail. Look for the sign saying “Picnic/Hiking Trail” after Buck Canyon and before the Orange Cliffs Overlook (I overshot the turnout).

The best views in Island in the Sky, along with Grand View Point, and a very easy trail. Would definitely recommend.

Great trail. My family went on this one and sunset was beautiful also.

Another hike to a scenic overlook, each has its unique view of the canyon. Just a little less busy because it has a little more length than most of the overlooks. Makes it all the more reason to do it.

Great little hike with with an amazing view as a payoff. Very low traffic for Memorial Day weekend, we only saw 5 other people on the trail. It took us 35 minutes round trip including picture time.

Had the trail to ourselves the whole time with great views in every direction. Limited parking for hikers think there was only 3-4 spots available so if you get there early you won’t have any issues.

Easy trail with a great view of the Canyon at the end. Did it after I lost the Gooseberry Trail.

I enjoyed this trail a little more than Grand View. There was almost no traffic and I had the place all to myself. The views are just as spectacular as anything else in Island in the Sky.

I really loved this trail the best of my 9 hikes today. It goes out to a narrow point with stunning view of the layer of white rock around the rim of the middle section of the canyon

Beautiful overlook! Canyonlands has over 300,000 acres and its amazing to see the vast expanse!
