Explore Needles Overlook

Details

Added by Jason Hatfield

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.
