  • If you only stop at one overlook at Canyonlands, it should be this one. You can see for miles. There is a rail in one section, but then the trail continues along the rim without a rail, so watch...

  • Great trail, sharp cliffs, watch your little ones or leave them at home. Breathtaking views of the white rim canyon, needles, and Green River. Begging your lunch and have a picnic with your loved one at the drop off. We did and it was incredible. Nice easy walk to the end of the mesa. Our kids were 7, 12, and 16 and it was still hard monitor their safety, since their curiosity was stronger than parent's pleads for staying off the edges. Overall an awesome walk. Recommend to anyone who enjoys outdoors and amazing views.
  • This is the endpoint of an fairly easy, relatively short hike along the edge of a spectacular canyon. Great views to be found here, but honestly, I enjoyed the views on the hike to/from this overlook better than the views on the overlook itself. The hike is doable by pretty much anyone of even passable health, regardless of age. Parents of children / people afraid of heights, be forewarned; there are no guardrails and enormous, nearly vertical drops along the hike, . That said, the trail never gets narrow enough where you remotely have to worry about falling over the edge, unless you decide to get close to the edge for better photos of the views. And the views really are grand like the name suggests. Well worth the visit and the hike, thoroughly recommended
