The Big Spring Canyon Overlook offers a wonderful panorama. Easily accessible at the end of the road, it is also the launching point for those planning the hike to the Green River and Colorado River Confluence Overlook.
For the commitment that you have to make to drive to Big Spring Canyon Overlook, I was really expecting a better payoff at the end. Don't get me wrong, it's a beautiful drive on Highway 211 & then onto the federal road that eventually leads to the visitors center & the overlook, but I was hoping for a better view...
The Canyonlands Park visit was one of the best experiences I've had across several continents.
The canyons were one of the greater views throughout the park, but frankly, so was everything else! Sunrise to sunset, we explored the trails and climbed, walked, ran, and posed near most of them.
Would definitely return...
At the end of the road in The Needles portion of Canyonlands. Pleasant place to easily walk around the stone formations and see the the small canyon. Lots of opportunities for great pictures. Near the trailhead for the Slickrock hike.
This is a beautiful area and definitely worth the time to take a look at if you want a really pretty panoramic view. If you are a photographer you will really enjoy this area. Bring lots of water if it's during the summer time it gets ridiculously hot.
