We stopped here on our way from Salt Lake City to Monument Valley. Unfortunately we didn't have a lot of time to spend since we needed to arrive there before dark. This was a gorgeous stop and we will definitely revisit it some day hopefully soon. We would love to walk one of the trails next time. There was a... More

We went at sunrise and that made it so special! The colours of the morning sun give this place just that little bit of extra magic to make this visit an unforgettable experience.

$15 entry fee is worth it for the views. The trails, viewpoints and mountain bilking trails make this a destination

The Outward Bound river raft expedition through Canyonlands is a Bucketlist experience for anyone! It begins near Potash, Utah where you put in. During your week on the Colorado, you will learn much. You will also retrace Powell's river defying journey. I went with my Navy Unit-via a Sierra Club provided special for combat veterans in 2011. I cannot do... More

After going to Canyonlands, this was a great quick stop. The canyon views there are beautiful and closer up than the Grand Canyon. Even if you only have 10 extra minutes it would be worth the quick trip to look at the canyon at Dead Horse Point State Park.

Although this was not on the itinerary of our coach tour, our courier highly recommended it and as it was perfect viewing weather for viewing we did a collection to pay the entrance fee. It was money well spent as the views were absolutely amazing, almost matching the Grand Canyon. I was surprised how quiet it was which made it... More

This park has some of the best canyon views you will ever see outside of the Grand Canyon. But that's is about all there is here. Unless you have some back country permit to hike the park you can make this a stop on your way along a travel route. Don't need to set aside a whole day.

Only stopped for a few minutes while leaving Canyonlands. Wasn't sure if it was worth the $10 just to see the view point but maybe if we had stayed longer it would have been.

This is a great place to stop and bike or hike in the area. The bike trails are well kept up and fun to ride. The walk along the edge offers great views from every angle and is easy for any age group. Has nice visitor center for those with extra time to learn more about the area and some... More

We drove out on the way to Canyonlands. It's easy to get to (you take the same main road as you would to go to Island in the Sky visitor center) with beautiful scenery along the way. It's $10 per vehicle (up to 8 people). There's a ~2 mile hike that we didn't do that supposedly offers great views. We... More
