Canyonlands National Park is divided into several different unconnected regions: Island in the Sky on the north, the Maze on the west, and the Needles on the east. They share a common primitive spirit and Wild West atmosphere until today. Canyonlands remains largely untrammeled as its roads mostly unpaved, trails primitive, and rivers free-flowing. Of all its different regions, Island... More

Seems wrong you just walk across the street from the visitors center to see this--you should have to work harder. This and mesa arch are the two things you can't miss here. The pictures people loaded are accurate but you can't capture the panoramic to do it justice.

Admission is $25/car (good 7 days) or NPS passes are accepted. The 25-mile paved scenic access road goes out on top of a 1000' high mesa... More

Canyonlands National Park is divided into 3 sections. Island in the Sky is one of the sections. I think this is the commonly visited section of Canyonlands. This is the only section of the park I have been to and it is amazing. We visited Mesa Arch, Upheaval Dome, and False Keva.

Very quiet and although cold the sun was up and the sky blue and the view just went on and on. Very good time to visit as their are few visitors and any hikes out are comfortable due to the low temperatures. The whole park is a wonder of nature and this is our second time visiting .

Canyonlands National Parks is divided into three main areas with the northern section known as Island in the Sky. It is probably the most frequently and easily visited section of the park. All the main sites are easily accessible as you are situated on the high ground above the rivers and canyons below. The main sites are Mesa Arch (not... More

Here is found a fantastic view, especially as winter comes on and the mountains beyond are snow capped. While not a expansive or deep as the Grand Canyon, the colors compare and when you look at the bottom, you can see there is another canyon inside the canyon. So peaceful, worth the drive.

Deep canyon views rival the grand canyon but without as many people. Visited in October, weather was perfect!
