We had only a short time in Canyonlands. This view area is the first one on the drive to other hikes in the park. And one not to be missed. It is a short walk to see them.

Great parking spot for hiking and viewing with restroom facility. We loved this spot as it provided viewing of a vast amount of the area.

We bought one ATV and rented another from Highpoint. They recommended M&M Trail. It had lots of variety and hardly anyone on the trail, which we really liked. We first stopped to see some dinosaur bones in the rock, then stopped at Tusher Tunnel for...More
