12 INCREDIBLE THINGS TO DO IN CANYONLANDS NATIONAL PARK UTAH (FOR 1ST TIME VISITORS)
We enjoyed two days exploring this national park in Utah and down below are our top tips on the best things to do in Canyonlands National Park including the best hikes, scenic drives, how to get there, where to stay, and more!
Mesa Arch Trail
One of the best things to do in Canyonlands National Park Island in the Sky is the Mesa Arch hike. It’s only 0.5 miles return and is beautiful, interesting and easy!
Grand View Point Overlook Trail
The Grand View Point Overlook Trail starts with close up views of the White Rim, which is a sandstone bench 1,200 feet below the Island.
Visitor Center Overlook
If there is one viewpoint not to miss when visiting Island in the Sky it’s the visitor center overlook.
Schaffer Canyon and Trail Overlook
I thoroughly recommend stopping to get a good look at the switchbacks of this famous four wheel drive road.
Green River Overlook
Green River is meant to be a great place to visit for sunset. If you only have time for one sunset, I recommend skipping this and going to Dead Horse Point instead.
