Explore Needles Overlook

Rate this Adventure Utah Needles Overlook

Added by

This remote overlook offers impressive, panoramic views of the Needles District in Canyonlands National Park.

About 1.5 hours from Moab on BLM land, Needles Overlook sits on a peninsula of rock 1600 ft. above southern Canyonlands NP. The views from here are just as commanding as Island in the Sky in Canyonlands, but with a lot fewer people due to its isolated location; there's a good chance you'll have the whole place to yourself. The overlook is fairly expansive and offers a plethora of views along its rim trail.
